First there was Doughnutgate. Now Gumgate has upset Judge Gaughan.
Standing up from his seat on the bench this morning, Gaughan held a baggie up filled with grey, masticated pieces of gum, which he said he'd pulled from the bottom of the press seats.
"Don't stick gum on the benches," he boomed.
"Actually, it's a crime - please don't make me do DNA on this."
As reporters looked at each other to try and spot the culprit, a special Kelly Chronicles investigation revealed that the underside of the benches were covered in pieces of hardened gum.
Most pieces looked like they'd been there for years.
