Prince Charles is a keen foodie and has even appeared on an episode of MasterChef in the past.

Poh said she got invited to have dinner with Prince Charles and Camilla and was seated next to the future king at the event.

“I made sure I knew what he likes, I know he likes architecture so we mainly just bantered about architecture,” Poh said to her camp

“But then out of the blue, I decide to use the word ‘dag’, and he goes, ‘Oh, what does that mean?’

“And I go, this is happening,” she said laughing.

“I go, ‘It’s kind of the dreadlock of poo that hangs off a sheep’s bum,’” Poh continued. “I actually said it.”

“And I looked and him and he goes, ‘Well, you learn something new every day, don’t you.’”

AFL legend Nathan Buckley also had his own bizarre celebrity story, revealing Paris Hilton once rocked up to his house for a barbecue after his wife, Tania Buckley, gifted the heiress with shoes to wear for the Melbourne Cup in 2003.

He said Rob Mills, whom Paris had a short relationship with, waited outside as the American star mingled.

“This is the conversation I had with her. She comes up to me with a full plate of food, in my house, [and says] ‘Fork?’” he revealed.

“I said, ‘Sorry?’ and she goes, ‘Fork?’ I said, ‘They’re just over there.’ She just walked away and that was the only interaction I had with her."
