Good Friday: TV priest Richard Coles' Stations of the Cross tweets send followers to porn site

The Reverend apologised to users who kept being directed to porn

A TV priest has been left red-faced after his Good Friday tweets inadvertently directed his Twitter followers to a porn site.

The Reverend Richard Coles is probably better known for being one half of the 1980s pop duo The Communards, who enjoyed a number one single with the dance/club version of Don’t leave me this way.

Rev Coles then branched out into the world of journalism and broadcasting before eventually joining the priesthood. He has since appeared as a guest on Have I Got News for You and is a regular host of BBC Radio 4's Saturday Live programme.

This morning, the Reverend began tweeting a modern version of the Stations of the Cross to his followers using a series of pictures to mark Good Friday.


However, he was later forced to apologise to his followers after accidentally directing them to a porn site.

"Sorry to those few who clicked on Stations of the Cross and got sent to a porn site. I don’t know how that happened. It works fine here,” he tweeted, much to the amusement of his followers.

Twitter user @ChrisMalanka responded with "What a racy vicar you are!" while @barbjungr remarked "hilarious".
