It was Ladies Night at the Baltic Inn and 150 women had packed in the pub to see Fabio the male stripper in all his glory.
But muscular Fabio had to cancel at the last minute and was replaced by novice Leon Zbudowskyj.
Unfortunately Mr Zbudowskyj fell far short of the audience's expectations. He was scruffy, thin, had no six-pack and looked as though he had been hit in the face with a wok'.
What's more, he had no act to speak of either, and very soon the crowd was hurling abuse and screwed up napkins in his direction.
Just when it seemed that the £10-a-head evening could get no worse the stripper, provoked by the abuse, apparently plunged into the crowd and started attacking the women.
Five police cars were sent to break up the scuffles at the Baltic, at Pontyates, near Llanelli, South Wales and 29-year-old Zbudowskyj was arrested on suspicion of assault.
Compere Debra Jones said: “He was diabolical, he was disgusting, he just didn't have anything, no music, no dance routine.
“He looked like he had come off the street, he looked dirty, he was unshaven and he didn't have a six pack. In fact, he looked like he had been hit in the face with a wok. He just wasn't the sort of person you'd want to see take their kit off.”
Posters for the Ladies Night showed a photograph of experienced stripper Fabio. But Fabio cancelled at the last minute and an agency, Fantasy Strip, sent Mr Zbudowskyj as a replacement.
Mr Zbudowskyj, who describes himself on Facebook as an entrepreneur', was due to be paid £150 for the show and stomped on stage dressed as a fireman. But the uniform didn't fit and his performance was far from smouldering.
The crowd, expecting a Full Monty-style show, began heckling after Mr Zbudowskyj spat frothy cream at them and then sat on a chair in the middle of the stage. Miss Jones said: He didn't move, he just glared at the audience.
The women started booing and they then started scrunching up serviettes and throwing them at him.
Viv Davies, 58, who has owned the country inn for seven years, said the disastrous evening had not put her off hosting a similar night.
“We have even set a date for the next one although I think we may steer away from firemen next time,” she said. The Fantasy Strip agency said it will not be working with Mr Zbudowskyj again.
A spokesman said: “It was the first time we had used him and he let us down big time.
“We have warned other agencies to stay away from him as he will mess up their bookings and damage their reputations.”
Mr Zbudowskyj, of Cathays, Cardiff, who has been released on police bail pending further inquiries, was unavailable for comment. - Daily Mail
