Christian Wilkins pranks his Today host father Richard

They have a very close bond as father and son. 

But Christian Wilkins pushed his dad, Today show’s entertainment editor Richard, a tad too far on Thursday.  

As part of Kyle And Jackie O’s Only Lying segment, the 23-year-old left his father fuming when he played a prank on him over the telephone.  

LOL: ‘Are you serious? Why would you do that?’: Socialite Christian Wilkins leaves his Today show host father Richard fuming after he plays a shock prank on him 

'Why would you do that?' Christian called up the TV veteran to 'confess' he had gotten a tattoo of a stag inked on his chest. An audibly angry Dickie was gobsmacked and scolded: 'I thought we decided that if you ever wanted to do like that we would discuss it first?'

‘It was just in the moment,’ Christian said as he explained that the inking was the size of two palms across the middle of his chest and complimented his boyfriend’s ram tattoo.

Clearly outraged at hearing the size of it, the breakfast TV host chimed in: ‘Stop it! Are you serious? Why would you do that?’

Staying composed, Christian answered: ‘I’m going to post something on Instagram.’

Not happy: A defeated Richard had nothing else to say to him and changed the topic to the mirror he was installing in his room. 'I'm putting the mirror up in your bedroom so you can look at it and look at yourself'

‘Oh fantastic, tell everybody! Why do you have to post everything on Instagram anyway?… The world doesn’t need to know every single thing,’ the entertainment news veteran fired back.

A defeated Richard said he had nothing else to say to his son and changed the topic to the mirror he was installing in his room.

‘I’m putting the mirror up in your bedroom so you can look at it and look at yourself,’ he barked sarcastically.  

Making him sweat!  After recording the prank, Christian told Jackie O and Kyle's fill-in host Beau Ryan that he didn't tell Richard it was a joke just to keep him 'sweating a little bit' Pictured: Richard with son Christian and daughter Estella

After recording the prank, Christian told Jackie O and Kyle’s fill-in host Beau Ryan that he didn’t tell Richard it was a joke just to keep him ‘sweating a little bit’.

Earlier in the year, Christian spoke about how he plans to follow his famed father’s career in The Daily Telegraph’s Balls Deep podcast.

‘To be his son and follow in his footsteps, I think, is a huge honour and not something that I’m ashamed of,’ he said.
