If a journalist asked you, on live TV, what the naughtiest thing you’d ever done was, the chances are you wouldn’t actually reveal all of the mad stuff you’d done down the years…
Some things are better off left behind closed doors, and after all, your mum might be watching.
However, what you also wouldn’t want to do is reveal the lamest thing you’ve ever done, and make yourself look like the most boring person in the world.
That’s just what Theresa May did recently though, during a cringe-worthy interview with Julie Etchingham on ITV’s Tonight programme.
When asked what the ‘naughtiest thing’ she’d ever done was, the Prime Minister searched for an answer, saying: “Oh, goodness me. Well, I suppose… gosh. Do you know, I’m not quite sure. I can’t think what the naughtiest thing…”
Then, she said this:
“Well, nobody is ever perfectly behaved, are they? I mean, you know, there are times when… I have to confess, when me and my friend, sort of, used to run through the fields of wheat.”
“The farmers weren’t too pleased about that,” she added.
Wow – who knew our PM was such a badass?
Safe to say that May quickly came in for a roasting on social media. See some of the hilarious reactions below:

Theresa May reckons running through a wheat field is the naughtiest thing she's ever done. Not cutting 20,000 police jobs then Theresa love?

The general election takes place on Thursday (June 8). Let’s hope the PM doesn’t deface any more fields of wheat before then…
