The hunk is wrapping up a summer run as the famous male stripper troupe's latest celebrity guest host, and he was thrilled to learn singer Carey would be at one of his most recent shows.

Footage of the 44 year old leading Carey to a throne onstage for a few intimate moments with the Into the Blue star has been posted online and Beckford admits he was stunned when the Hero hitmaker agreed to join him onstage at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino revue.

He says, "We'd invited her over and then I said to her, 'Would you like to come up onstage?' and she was like, 'Well, you have to do me a favour... You have to be in my video this weekend!' So she came up and then I jumped in the video.

"(In the video for Infinity) I actually showed up at her door with flowers and I had on my Chippendales bow-tie and cuffs... It worked out... There was no payment exchange - it was just, 'You do me a favour, I'll do you a favour'."

Beckford initially joined the Chippendales for a month-long run in April (15), but he had so much fun he returned for a summer stint, which ends on 27 September (15), and he admits he'll be sad to walk away from the friends he has made.

He explains, "It's kinda getting a little sad and emotional... The guys are really nice and the organisation is so professional. They take good care of me, so it's gonna be hard to say goodbye."
