Former BEVERLY HILLS 90210 star Jason Priestley faced the ultimate embarrassment on American TV yesterday (28OCT03) - when he was caught out wearing his girlfriend's ankle socks.

The actor appeared on popular daytime chat show The View to promote his upcoming film DIE, MOMMIE, DIE, and halfway through the interview he was interrupted and questioned about his attire.

Co-host Joy Behar enquired, "What's with these socks?"

As the audience roared with laughter, an embarrassed Priestley admitted, "I tried to hide them! Here's the deal. It's a very long story but I had no socks this morning and so I had to sort of steal a pair of my girlfriend's socks. I can't believe I got busted!"

Priestley is currently dating make-up artist Naomi Lowde.
