The sight of Greyfriars bus station made superstar Justin Bieber gag when he was shown a picture of Northampton’s “mouth of hell” on Alan Carr’s Chatty Man.
As part of an interview on the Channel Four show last night (Friday), the Northampton born talk show host asked Bieber about his comeback performance at the VMA Awards in August, in which the pop singer broke down in tears.
Carr quipped that the tears were a result of Bieber’s tight “harness” worn for the performance and preceded to show the singer a montage of images to see what else would make him “upset.”
Among the pictures, which included a Labrador puppy and an image of former high street store Woolworths, Bieber feigned a blubbering lip.
But it was a picture of Greyfriars bus station being demolished, which drew the biggest laugh from the crowd.
Bieber pretended to vomit down the side of the Chatty Man sofa, to which Carr responded by saying: “That’s Northampton where I’m from - they blew up the bus station.”
The interview, which talked about Bieber’s return to music, selfies and the 21-year-old’s current physique, also saw the popstar perform hit single What Do You Mean, take part in a high heel dash and attempt to break a world record for the most Maltesers thrown into the mouth of a blindfolded recipient.
