Tom Read Wilson recalls first date where he choked on lamb shank and almost died

Celebs Go Dating star Tom Read Wilson has recalled a nightmare first date where he choked on a lamb shank and almost died.

I mean, we have all had bad dates Tom, but we think that tops it!

As Celebs Go Virtual dating comes to an end, receptionist Tom, who is well-known for his quick wit and hilarious one-liners has spoken out about his worst-ever date.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk about the awful experience, Tom began: ‘You should never go to a restaurant on a first date, and this is why.

‘It was very difficult to get anything out of him, and so I was yakking away and our food came out and I had this glorious lamb shank and I was absolutely salivating.

‘Then all sudden by accident I hit upon a subject that interested him, and he launched into an anecdote and I thought oh bliss I can eat.

‘So I dug in and all of a sudden, he asked me a question and so I swallowed this hunk of lamb and it lodged in my gullet.’

Things then took an unexpected turn for Tom as he had to give himself the Heimlich manoeuvre after he rushed to the toilets.

‘I staggered across the restaurant I didn’t want him to help me because I didn’t want him to be my knight in amour so I got to the loo and I had this throbbing vein on my forehead.

‘I was absolutely at death’s door and I had to perform the Heimlich manoeuvre on myself. I eventually regurgitated this piece of lamb.’

The 32-year-old went on to explain that at the time, he thought he was going to die and he had visions of his date calling his parents.

‘I had visions of him telephoning my parents and, you know, picking up my phone and then thinking oh gosh his last memory was this terribly beige man.’

Oh Tom, never change!
