    Question 'pulling a Myleene'=?

    Hello!

    1 'pulling a Myleene'=?

    2 truncheon = the humourous euphemism for penis?

    3 Is "I'm a celebrity" popular in the UK? I have searched the info about it from Google.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I'm_a_C...Me_Out_of_Here!

    Thanks!


    Brian Paddick may have won himself some new fans by 'pulling a Myleene' and stripping in the jungle shower - but Esther Rantzen isn't one of them.

    The 68-year-old didn't know where to look when she was confronted with the former police commander's 'truncheon' on I'm A Celebrity yesterday.

    Nature-loving Paddick was completely unselfconscious as he stripped off and joined her in the waterfall shower. But the former That's Life presenter pursed her lips and delicately averted her eyes as he lathered up.

    This is generally used if the thing being done is done frequently by Myleene, and Myleene probably has a bit of a reputation for having done it.

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you for your answer. Who is Myleene? What is the full name of hers/his? So that I can search the info about this.

    You're welcome.

    Also, I believe you correctly deduced the 'truncheon' reference.

    Hi Anglika,

    Thank you for your help.

    I just popped up another question about pull a +Name.

    What does "pull" mean here? Could any of you give me another example of the phrase? Thanks!

    I coin one as below. Is it okay?

    The City Mayor Mike has a sweet tooth and he eats icecream everyday. I pull a Mike.

    Re: 'pulling a Myleene'=?

    To pull something = perform an act, often with a negative connotation.

    Employees who call in sick are often pulling a fast one on their employers [ie - they are not really ill; just getting a free day off]

    It is time for the candidate to pull a Sara Palin and surprise us all.
