Le Bon's 'Chocolate Lubricant' Disaster

DURAN DURAN frontman SIMON LE BON's declaration of his love for orange Smarties took a sinister turn when he found himself bombarded by the sweet treats onstage.

The ORDINARY WORLD star became the prime target for Smarties-throwing fans and, after initially condoning the bizarre activity, he soon realised hundreds of hot chocolates was actually a major health and safety hazard.

He says, "I once announced that I liked orange Smarties the best, so fans decided to bombard me with them. At every show we played, people would throw them on stage.

"Smarties aren't so great when they've been on a stage under hot spotlights. You tread on one and suddenly it releases this chocolate lubricant all over the stage that's more dangerous than a banana skin."
