Jameela Jamil suffered an epic toilet fail while auditioning for The Good Place (Picture: WireImage)Jameela Jamil has admitted she almost broke the toilet while auditioning for US sitcom The Good Place.
The TV presenter turned actress stars on the series as Tahani Al-Jamil, but she’s now revealed that she was so close to running out of her auditioning all because of an embarrassing toilet mishap.
Joining Phoebe Robinson on her podcast Sooo Many White Guys, Jameela spoke about the epic fail she suffered while going for a number two just before stepping out in front of the casting directors.
‘So we’re in the audition, it’s the second audition this time and I was like, “I need to do a nervous poo,” so I went to do it and there’s only one toilet and it’s shared by the casting director and all of the actresses,’ she explained.
‘I went to flush it, the flush came off in my hand and it was just me and this little poo staring at each other,’ Jameela confessed.
‘I’m like, “OK, I’m just going to climb out of the window, leave and go back to England,” which was genuinely my first instinct.

Jameela explained how she then thought about scooping the poo out of the toilet to get rid of it, but luckily noticed a metal part sticking out of the toilet and after fiddling with that, she was able to flush the toilet successfully.
Nothing like a five-minute stress to really get you in the zone, huh.
Along with appearing in The Good Place, Jameela has been busy being an advocate for body positivity.
Not only calling out stars for promoting unhealthy weight loss products, but also given celebrities a platform to share their own experience on Instagram channel I Weigh.
Sam Smith recently joined Jameela and revealed he’d had liposuction when he was just 12 years old while battling with his weight.
Sam said: ‘I was so self conscious that it was affecting my mood and life everyday. I had liposuction when I was 12 years old. That’s a big thing.’
