Pizza shop romp duo face court after filmed having sex
IT was the daring dalliance that brought new meaning to the menu offering 12-inch pepperoni stuffed crust.
Loved up duo Daniella Hirst and Craig Smith, who were caught going at it in the middle of a Domino's store while waiting for their pizza order earlier this year, have finally faced court charged with outraging public decency.
Their public sex act took place in February at the global chain's takeaway shop in Scarborough in North Yorkshire in the United Kingdom.
A 40-second clip of security vision of the gobsmacking moment quickly went viral, earning the couple infamy around the world.
According to The Sun newspaper, they were waiting for their 12-inch pepperoni pizza and a side of chicken kickers when the urge allegedly rose.
Their embracing of the new notoriety - posing for racy bedroom photo shoots and even agreeing to a photo shoot outside the Domino's in question - as seen their unfortunate five minutes of fame extended.
But now the long arm of the law has caught up with Hirst, 28, and Smith, 31. They appeared in Scarborough Magistrates Court yesterday and incredibly pleased not guilty, so they've been ordered to stand trial in September.
Hirst, a barmaid, said it was her builder boyfriend's idea and they'd engaged in various public intimate moments in the past.
"Our top five include a bus, a van, a hotel, swimming pool and a field. We wanted to see if we could top it," Smith told The Sun.
"We got a bit frisky and one thing led to another. Domino's is definitely now our number one - going to be hard to top it."
Hirst said she was very "opened minded about sex and public places" but never expected their fetish to go global.
The couple had spent the weekend drinking in Leeds celebrating Craig's birthday when they got the train to Scarborough on that Saturday evening.
The pair, from Bridlington, East Yorkshire, booked into a local pub but felt peckish so headed across the road to Domino's.
"We laughed as we walked home. We've done it all over the place but never anywhere that risky - never with people that close before. We got back to the hotel and continued where we left off."
The shocking footage shows Smith pulling down Hirst's underpants while she bends over the counter, all in full view of staff and oblivious bystanders.
Understandably, the couple - who had been dating for three months prior to the pizza shop romp - copped a bit of flack from critics online.
In response, Hirst said: "Rule number one, never waste ya boyfriend's b***r and always opt for stuffed crust."
"To be fair, this is something of nothing. Everybody we know has had sex in risky places. It's just one of them things that people do.
"Not everyone is locked in their bedrooms at the end of the day. People explore and we're no different.
"Unfortunately for us it ended up on the internet. I guess you can't please everyone - but at least Craig is happy."
