A student was recently left embarrassed after she sent a photo of her university room to her mum – only to forget her handcuffs were attached to the bed railings.
Ella Martine recently tweeted to share the text messages between her and her mother.
She explained: ‘Moms been asking for pics of my new room… finally sent one… i’m so stupid.’

In the text messages, Ella sent a photo of her room – which is seriously pretty – to her mum – only for her mum to spot the handcuffs.
At first, she told Ella the room looked really nice… and then she spotted the handcuffs.
Seemingly baffled, she asked Ella ‘What’s up with that’. Awkward.
Ella then shared a photo of the handcuffs, which were attached to the railings of her bed.
To try to cover herself, Ella told her mum that the handcuffs had been there for her flatmate’s short film.

Her mum seemingly bought it – though was still a little suspicious and told her she needed to get rid of them immediately. So maybe she was more clued up than Ella thought.
The tweet ended up going viral, receiving more than 24,000 retweets and 113,000 likes – and loads of responses from people on Twitter.

We’ve got to give it to Ella for her quick excuse – and we just hope she’ll remember to remove any other suspicious items out of her bedroom next time she decides to send her mum a picture.
