The top April Fool’s Day pranks of 2022 have been revealed with Brits waking up to a world of professional dog footballers and police on camelback.

Bizarre news on April 1 told of the Prime Minister’s apparent resignation, crocodiles on the beach, the renaming of the Prince of Wales Bridge and a giant white horse statue dubbed “Angel of the South” in Kent.

Meanwhile Good Morning Britain pulled several jokes live on air on Friday.

Manchester City WFC were tricked into announcing the club’s first doggy sports player which they did with gusto before breaking out into laughter.

Forward Ellen White delivered her line earnestly “welcoming City’s first ever canine sports player” and questioned whether to refer to it as a “person” or a “player.”

“This is too much,” she added before being convinced to deliver her final line “shake paws.”

“Shut up. Like an agility trial dog? No way, oh my gosh that’s amazing,” she said.

“This is a player with real pedigree,” a teammate said while another added “I can’t take this seriously.”
