My Two Cents: Don’t worry Karen, it’s happened to the best of us. I was smoking a cigarette butt-naked in the hall of a New Orleans Hampton Inn last year. Luckily I realized I was nude and went back into my room before anyone caught me. I was also drunk and forgot to put my robe on before stepping out. Luckily my foot had the door propped open. End Two Cents.

There’s never a Tardis around to whisk a girl away when she needs one.
Doctor Who star Karen Gillan could have done with just that when she reportedly got stranded naked in a hotel corridor at 7am after a night partying.
The flame-haired beauty, 23, who plays the Time Lord’s assistant Amy Pond, was allegedly found trying another guest’s door while she was on the week-long promotional junket.
One claimed Karen was “whimpering” at his door. He said: “I went to the peephole then I saw this woman naked, trying to wrap towels around her and not having much luck. She started to whimper and knock on my door.
“Seeing that she wasn’t getting anywhere, she lay down with the towels covering her.” Suzanne Leonara, another resident at New York’s Ace Hotel, said: “She looked as though she hadn’t been to bed.”
Show boss Stephen Moffatt and Matt Smith, who plays the Doctor, were also on the trip.
Last night, a spokesman for BBC Worldwide, the corporation’s commercial arm, said: “We’re unaware of this alleged incident.”
A BBC source added: “BBC Worldwide does not use licence fee income to operate – so this international publicity trip was not funded by the licence fee payer.”
Karen’s agent declined to comment.
