The latest audience member to fall victim to Graham Norton's infamous red chair pulled the plug on her own meandering mystery tale.

Mia from Leicester came to the show with friends from London and attempted to tell a story about getting locked in a utility room with a male friend at a school reunion at a big country house.

However, despite rambling on for two minutes about the events that unfolded in the aforementioned utility room, she managed to reveal very little, and eventually pleaded with Graham to pull the lever and end her pain.

What we do know about the utility room is that it was -3 degrees, there was no alcohol, there was a dog basket, coats, and Mia revealed, "We realised you have to take your clothes off to stay warm."

Okay.

"It was really, really cold Graham, it really was," she continued.  "There's no toilet.  I really, really need a wee. There's just a bowl with the dog basket so that happens...

"Then one thing leads to another in the dog basket and he gets injured anyway."

A perplexed Graham then interjects, "There are so many bits of this story missing. So, you're having sex in a dog basket?"

"No, I'm not, I'm absolutely not," insists Mia. "Anyway, he gets injured, there's a lot of blood everywhere."

Realising she's going to reveal perhaps more than she'd like, Mia then begs Graham to end her misery.

"Pull the lever, pull the lever Graham!" she says, and he fulfils her wishes, noting it's the first time the storyteller has ever ended their own story.

Unfortunately, neither Norton, his guests, audiences or viewers were any the wiser as to what actually happened...
