On Saturday the BBC Three account tweeted what appeared to be a promo for David Attenborough: A Life Of Grime.
The tweet came complete with a mocked up cover of the legendary broadcaster with various industry stars and read: "Brand new and exclusive to BBC Three."
Alerted to the post by a fan, Stormzy said the channel “had been doing some dumb s***” and sent them a long DM “just slewing them”.

He told the fan: “Sis, it's April fools, we've been punked. Fuming”.
In a series of follow up tweets, he said: “F*** April fools man there's no time it's too confusing what is the truth” and added: “Fam I'm coming off the internet.”
