A Northampton pub invited a BBC radio presenter to cut the ribbon on its formerly ‘grotty’ bogs.
The Pomfret Arms, in Cotton End, came up with the stunt after recently having the toilets refurbished.
Co-owner Barney Felce said: “It was just for a laugh, really, but we did want to let our regulars know they’d been done up - they were pretty grotty.”
Wanting to make a fuss, staff contacted BBC Radio Northampton’s Bernie Keith and cheekily asked if he’d like to cut the ribbon.
After Mr Keith had called the pub on air to say - jokingly - that he had never been so insulted, he later agreed to the unusual request.
At the ‘grand re-opening’, Mr Keith gave a speech and barman Roger Balfour christened the new urinals with some champagne.
“It was glorious!,” Mr Felce said.
The event was rounded off with a quiz, with the old hand drier and toilet roll holder being given as a booby prize.
The winners left feeling flush, however, getting £200 in cash.
