The best celebrity pranks of all time for April Fool's Day

Resident 'hygge' expert, winter enthusiast ☕️ ❄️ and crime doc lover.

It's that time of the year again - April Fool's Day is almost here and if you're anything like us, you're already planning your best prank yet. But just in case you're in need of a bit of inspiration, we're here to save the day.




From convincing prank calls to staged set-ups (with camera crews and the lot) and fake pregnancies, here are some of our favourite celebrity gags of all time from the likes of funny man James Corden, Justin Bieber, Rihanna and Drake.

Katie Couric fools James Corden on his own show

TV comedy king James Corden is renowned for making us all laugh but this time, the joke was on him when US journalist Katie Couric pulled off an epic prank on him while appearing on his popular show, The Late Late Show, back in 2015.

Hiring a stunt double, Katie made one hell of an entrance as she staged a fake fall down the stairs of the studio after being introduced by James. His reaction was PRICELESS...


Rihanna sneaks into Jimmy Kimmel's home & wakes him up

Ok so we know it's meant to be a prank but we totally wouldn't mind Rihanna waking us up with a group of dancers and blasting Bitch Better Have My Money while throwing cash around our bedrooms. And we're sure Jimmy Kimmel didn't mind too much either as he later told the star on his show "that's not usually how you come to me in my dreams. And then for the rest of the night all I was hearing was Bitch Better have My Money"


Justin Bieber and Ellen Degeneres prank call a fan

Everyone enjoys a good prank call, especially when Justin Bieber is the perpetrator! Here, the music heartthrob teams up with Ellen Degeneres to make one of his super fans (who is also an educational goody-two-shoes) believe that he is calling from the English department of her University to give her a formal warning about skipping classes. He even puts on a pretty awful English (Or Australian?) accent which makes it even funnier...

John Stamos' major freakout at Netflix HQ

Netflix basically won April Fool's Day last year when they released a fake trailer of Full House star John Stamos' biopic documentary before "leaking" a video of the actor loosing his sh*t at the Netflix offices for making fun of him and his brand. But of course, the whole thing was a huge gag and Stamos was in on it. Watch the videos below...

Zayn & Louis pranking the rest of the One Direction boys

This one is an oldie but a goodie as Zayn Malik and former bandmate Louis Tomlinson managed to make the rest of One Direction believe that their Nickelodeon producer was going into labour during their meeting. You have to see Harry's face during the whole thing... it's HILARIOUS.

Drake on Punk'd

We were all obsessed with Ashton Kutcher's MTV show Punk'd back in the day and he's a reminder why. In an episode he described as his favourite, the actor pulled a fast one on Canadian rapper Drake by staging a fake earthquake in a parking area where he was brought by intelligence staff. His reaction will bring you major LOLs...
