Myleene Klass once stole toilet roll from Pope Benedict XVI's Italian summer retreat and gave it to her friends as Christmas presents
Myleene Klass once stole toilet paper from Pope Benedict XVI.
The 33-year-old TV presenter - who is mum to four-year-old Ava and six-month-old Hero - took some of the loo roll from the leader of the Roman Catholic Church's Italian Castel Gandolfo summer retreat while filming for BBC One's 'Heaven and Earth' show, and some of the tissue away to her friends as Christmas presents.
She told The Sun newspaper: "The Pope wasn't actually there - but I did take some loo roll. And I made Christmas presents out of it. I stuck a piece of tissue, and I'd write, 'Papal loo roll; a tissue. Bless you.' It's so bad it's good, right?
"I gave it to a few friends and I framed some up too. It's very special because it's got papal wreaths embossed all over it in little green laurel leaves. I was amazed that they gave us such free reign to explore."
But it's not the first time Myleene has stolen a "souvenir" from a high profile place, as she also admitted to taking some writing paper from Downing Street.
She added: "You've always got to take a souvenir. I took writing paper from Downing Street - so I write my notes for the fridge on that."
