Adrian Chiles reveals he has naked double on OnlyFans
The star said his lookalike is raking it in on the platform
Adrian Chiles has told of his shock after discovering a man has apparently been making a fortune on OnlyFans as his naked lookalike.
The TV star, 55, said he was sent a news story about a man called Mike, from Leeds, who claimed to be making big bucks on the adults-only platform.
The man said he was paid to do things like strip while reading football results and that one women asked him to eat crumpets naked.

Chiles wrote in The Guardian: “As soon as I’d got the gist of the story, recoiling in horror, I pinched the page smaller again so I could read no more. I’d seen as much as I could stand for a moment.”
The star said that after taking a few deep breaths he had another look at the details as he attempted to “get to the, er, bottom of this madness”.
He learned that the man started off with “vanilla” suggestions from fans called “Chillies” but that things stepped up a bit to some racier requests.
Mike said one fan even forked out a whopping £500 for him to read Chiles’ Guardian piece out loud while performing a sex act on himself.
The TV star said he had learned a lot about himself from his response to the story, and admitted that he couldn't help feeling a bit proud and that if he found out it wasn’t true he would actually be a little disappointed.

“And finally, I must admit I did think, if only briefly, that this chap’s making a grand a day, and if things went very wrong for me – well, never say never,” he joked.
