Ben Fordham reveals his mother’s hilarious reaction when he tricks her into believing he’s bought a luxurious $200,000 Bentley

Ben Fordham enjoys pulling the occasional prank, and on Monday, his own mother was his target. 

The 2GB radio presenter, 44, shared the entire gag to Instagram, starting with a photo of what looked like a white, luxury vehicle. 

The TV star wrote in his caption: ‘Swipe to read my mum’s reaction to me buying a Bentley’.

The second photo showed text messages between his mother, Veronica, and himself, in which he writes: ‘I just bought a secondhand Bentley!’ 

His mother urgently sent back a number of question marks, to which Ben replied, ‘true story’. 

Clearly less than impressed, Ben’s mother shot back another message, this time writing: ‘Call me’.

Instead of picking up the phone to place the call, Ben ended her misery by sending a photo of his new ‘car’. 

That picture showed the radio star wearing pink shorts and giving the thumbs up while perched atop a toy Bentley. 

Unimpressed, mama Fordham texted back to her wayward son dryly: ‘You’re a goose’.

It’s no wonder that Ben had his mum upset – the average cost of a Bentley starts at $200,000 and it often only goes up from there, with some worth $300,000 or more.

While Ben took over a coveted 2GB radio spot from talkback icon Alan Jones last year, he did not inherent Alan’s $4 million per year pay packet. 

In a series of video posts on Instagram in January, Ben revealed he’d been fishing on a pier when a $50 note blew out of his pocket and into the water – and waded into the water to retrieve it.
