A woman who made headlines after a video of her getting stuck behind a sofa went viral has revealed how bystanders suggested calling the fire brigade in a desperate bid to set her free.
Lindsey Clark, from North Shields, appeared on This Mornig today after being filmed falling behind the seat when she tried to retrieve her friend’s coat at the end of a celebratory birthday bottomless brunch last weekend.
The 40-year-old had been celebrating the 47th birthday of her friend Julie Jackson at the TwelveTwentyFive restaurant in the North Tyneside town.
Instead of helping, her friends seized the opportunity to record the unexpected moment, leaving restaurant staff to save her.

Lindsey Clark, 40, from North Shields, appeared on This Morning today to discuss how a video of her getting stuck behind a sofa recently went viral
A now viral video of the incident, which has garnered thousands of likes on Facebook, shows Lindsay’s legs and feet sticking out from the corner of the dining room, after falling in trying to reach down to grab the jacket.
After a battle that involved tugging on her shins, the 40-year-old was eventually placed back on the sofa, fortunately smiling.
In an interview with Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield on This Morning today, she discussed how staff were forced to rescue her from her predicament – but not before suggesting the emergency services were called.
The programme’s hosts, who laughed at the clip, and said ‘everyone’ has been talking about it, asked her about the hilarious incident.
Luckily for Lindsey (pictured here on the day of the boozy brunch), restaurant staff were able to pull her out from the sofa, so she did not need to be rescued by the fire brigade

Phil noted that someone had suggested the fire brigade was called, and asked Lindsey how she felt when she heard that suggestion.
She replied: ‘I said to the [two restaurant staff], “That’s it, get us out now,”.
‘I could not have that, I would have been mortified. That would have been even more embarrassing.’
Speaking about how she felt after the clip went viral, Lindsey added: ‘It’s just mental. I mean, it is funny, but I didn’t realise that it was going to be that funny.
‘I always put stupid things on Facebook…I’m happy it’s [gone] viral if people think it’s funny.’
Twitter users had mixed feelings on the clip – with one saying they would never be able to leave the house again if this happened to them, but others suggesting it was a common occurence
Viewers took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the cringy clip, with some agreeing it was extremely embarrassing, but others suggesting it was commonplace.
One wrote: ‘You’d never see me in public again if something like that happened to me #thismorning.’
But another one said: ‘That’s pretty normal for up here #ThisMorning.’
And a second Tweeter agreed, adding: ‘Drunk Northerner got stuck behind sofa #ThisMorning.’
