Coming soon: Outrageous website offering celebrity sperm for sale!
It's the most bizarre route to stardom we've ever heard of, but soon you will be able to guarantee your child the glow of the limelight by ensuring his or her father is famous!
Just cough up £15,000 for the chance to buy the sperm of high-flying Oscar winners, footballers and Peers.
That's the outlandish offering of a new 'service' that offers women the chance to be impregnated by 'top quality celebrity surrogate fathers'.
The service – called Fame Daddy – will launch next February, and claims that women can pick from a range of celebrated high-achievers when picking a prospective father for their offspring.
The identities of each star will kept secret because the donors have been guaranteed anonymity.
The men will also be required to sign a legal waiver of their rights to access to the child. However would-be mothers using the Fame Daddy clinic will be able to identify their area of achievement and other personal attributes.
They can choose from donor dads who have excelled in a range of fields including sport, entertainment and business.
The website lists a range of 'sample profiles' of typical sperm donors, including an Oscar-winning actor, a member of the House of Lords and an ex-Premiership footballer.
But is it all it seems?
The company admits it has no real sperm samples just yet but says they'll be, er, coming soon, and following an appearance on This Morning by Fame Daddy Chief Executive Dan Richards, presenter Phillip Schofield has said the This Morning team are carrying out an investigation to get to the bottom of the story.
Speaking about his 'company', Mr Richards said: "We currently have about 40 people on our register of interested donors. Of course, until we have premises we cannot store sperm and therefore we as of yet have no actual samples. I am confident most of these will donate once we are operational.
"Our vision is to help women give their children the very best chance in life.
"To be able to harvest potential from the global gene pool, rather than from the more limited selection of the men she comes into direct contact with, is a major evolutionary leap for women.
"Our aim is to provide excellent levels of medical care in a supportive and nurturing environment. We will offer a range of top quality celebrity surrogate fathers whose contributions are exclusively available at our fertility clinic.
"Whether it is talent on the stage or pitch, having a world beating voice, or just being very beautiful, Fame Daddy will have the perfect celebrity surrogate daddy."
What do you make of this?!
