Rev Richard Coles: Oops!

This is Reverend Richard Coles. He has more than 57,000 followers on Twitter.

He used to be in 80’s band The Communards, before he swapped the world of pop for the pulpit.

The Church of England priest is also a regular host of BBC Radio 4′s Saturday Live programme.

This morning, Good Friday, he was up early tweeting a modern take on the Stations of the Cross.

However, the Rev later apologised after inadvertantly directing his followers to a porn website.


Richard Coles does have a very good defence - the website linked to was an exclusively heterosexual 'dating site', the daintily named Local Slappers, which I think we can be sure he doesn't use. 

PS Remember this incident that did involve a man of the cloth and an unfortunate gay porn accident?


  1. I heard the Rev. Mr Coles in a long interview on the local radio. Quite liked him.

  2. Richard's lovely!

    I would say listen to Saturday Live, but he's not on this week...
