Alan stars as Cheryl and Gemma Collins in '24 Hours in Celebrity Police Custody'
It's a difficult job looking after celebrities in police custody, and as we quickly find out, while some celebs are cut out for it, others simply are not. Once a suspect is in custody the police have 24 hours to investigate and interview. After that it's either charge or release.
The first celebrity offender to appear in this episode is Cheryl Cole, who tries to cheat her way out of her deception sentence for miming on the X Factor by stating a ridiculous fake name: Cheryl Fernandez Versini. When up for questioning, Cheryl proves her tough Geordie persona by denying all charges and refusing to comply, choosing instead to try and dance her way out of the situation.
Some inmates however aren't quite as tough, and we are given exclusive insight into the torments of TOWIE's own Gemma Collins. After a long and harrowing 56 seconds in police custody, Gemma is at breaking point, having eaten her mattress and pillow from sheer starvation, she begins confessing to all manner of crimes, including her preference for Made in Chelsea.
GEMMA: "Oh it's doing me ead in, I'll confess to anyfink - I've just got get out ... I hid Arg ... I killed Lucy Beale ... I prefer Made in Chelsea, anything babes ... I'm just so hungry ... I can't fink when I'm hungry."
Will any of these repeat offenders finally learn their lesson? Find out in 24 Hours in Celebrity Police Custody.
