The Judy Frog is undergoing tests

An Iranian newspaper has reported the controversial story of a frog who claims to have given birth to a Daytime Television presenter.

The Iranian daily Etemaad says the presenter is believed to have grown from grown up to an adult inside her body.

While it is unclear how this could have happened, the paper carries quotes from medical experts who say there are frog like characteristics to the presenter.

It has been speculated that the frog, who has not been named, unknowingly picked up the some sample DNA whilst working with a Channel 4 documentary team last year in Tehran, or that she had been was swimming in a dirty pool after Richard Madely.

The frog, from the south-eastern city of Iranshahr, is a mother of two hundred and twenty five thousand children.

The "so-called Judy-frog", as the newspaper puts it, has yet to undergo precise genetic and anatomic tests. As it has been quite busy organising next month's book club and opening supermarkets as far a field as Doncaster and Azerbaijan.

But it quotes clinical biology expert Dr Aminifard as saying: "The similarities are in appearance, increasingly wrinkled skin, large flappy jowls, the shape of the fingers and the size and shape of the tongue."

Medical history recounts stories of people who believed they had frogs - or even lizards or snakes - living and growing in their bodies. Liam Neeson was famous for having a large snake about his person and Pamela Anderson once feared she had a managed to eat some melon seeds that had germinated.

Meanwhile, channel four have reported a sharp decrease in the number of flies seen in it's West London offices and have now stopped trying to locate the source of a reported annoying sort of "Ribbit" type sound coming from the Lifestyle department…

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
