British funnyman Matt Lucas has hit back at accusations he has been writing messages on Twitter.com while drunk, insisting his account was hacked this week (beg31Jan11).
The Alice In Wonderland star's page was updated with several bizarre posts on Monday night (31Jan10), leaving fans convinced he had indulged in alcohol before hitting the web.
The teetotal funnyman woke up on Tuesday (01Feb11) to find a string of replies from worried followers and he revealed an impostor had taken control of his account.
He writes, "Good morning all. Um, my Twitter account was hacked last night, so ignore any Tweets sent because they didn't come from me!
"Thanks for your accusations that I was drunk. I'm teetotal. The mistake I made was not logging out of my computer!"
