A WOMAN got stuck head-first in a sofa and had to be lifted out by her legs after a prosecco brunch ended in disaster.
Lindsay Clark, 40, was celebrating her pal Julie Jackson’s birthday when she got wedged upside down, at the restaurant in North Shields, North Tyneside.

The 40-year-old had been attempting to retrieve her friend’s jacket that had fallen behind the furniture – but unfortunately lost her footing.
Lindsay was then caught on camera with her legs flailing in the air while two young employees at TwelveTwentyFive tugged on her shins in order to set her free.
Speaking about the blunder, she said: “I reached down to get my friend’s jacket and it slid further towards the floor and I went with it until I was wedged in the hole.
“I had to get the two employees to pull me out. I couldn’t push myself out because of the position I was in.
“I probably would have been okay if I was a bit skinnier but I got stuck.
“Of course, my friends were there to film it.
“The bar have shared it on their Facebook page so they can’t have thought it was that bad.
“I have bruises on my boobs and belly where I was stuck and scratches on my legs as the back of the sofa was made with wood.
“It was mortifying but it didn’t ruin my night, everyone knows that’s what I’m like anyway.”
Support worker Julie, of Newcastle, said: “We were out celebrating my birthday.
“We were drinking all sorts but a lot of Prosecco.
“My other friend’s jacket fell behind the sofa so Lindsay reached down to get it and fell behind the sofa.
“She was stuck for about ten minutes in total.
“The staff were all lovely, they could have been funny about it but they were really nice.
“It’s not a birthday I’ll forget.”
Julie shared the hilarious video on her Facebook where it racked up over 2,000 likes.
She said: “I didn’t expect to get that reaction. Lindsay finds it hilarious, it’s just a bit of a laugh.
“She’s always wanted to be famous, although I don’t think this is how she expected it to happen.”
