Stephen Fry in hot water over Harry Potter pix

Queen of Twitter, Stephen Fry seems to have had his buttocks rapped after posting up pictures he took of the Harry Potter film set.

According to, Fry was filming a Sherlock Holmes film at Leavesden studios and couldn't resist ambling onto the Harry Potter set to take a few pictures, which he then stuck online.

The pictures were soon taken down, as, it seems, were Fry's trousers.

"Oops. I’ve been sent to the naughty step…. " he Twitted., Shortly after confessing, "Just wandered round the Harry Potter Privet Drive on the studio backlot. Already looking a little overgrown. Time is so cruel..."

Fry later Twitted: "Shall be a good boy on set today. *Sticks gaffer-tape over camera lens* Heigh ho."

Fry's had a bit of weekend of it, after suggesting women don't like sex as much as men. He reckons that if they did they'd hanging out on Hampstead Heath looking for a quick bunk-up in the way that homosexual men do.

"So some f*cking paper misquotes a humorous interview I gave, which itself misquoted me and now I'm the Antichrist. I give up," he Twitted on the back of that one.

He rounded off his weekend with a stark "Bye bye" on Twitter, sending his followers into paroxysms of woe at the thought that he may have hung up his keyboard for good.

We suspect the old boy will soon be back, inveterate attention seeker that he is.
