When Michael Onorati fell asleep after a hard day's work, he was far too tired to take his socks off ... so, he didn't bother about it and went to sleep wearing them. However, when he woke up and pulled his socks off, he was horror-struck to see that one of his feet had turned into a dark shade of mahogany brown!

Michael immediately began to panic... surely this was some terrible disease? Or fungus? Or frostbite or something?
Convinced his foot was in imminent danger of dropping off completely, Michael thought he'd better seek urgent medical help at the hospital.
Fortunately, before he could make his move, his girlfriend Stephanie Wylie entered the room.
And as soon as she saw his discoloured foot she knew exactly what had happened!
Stephanie confessed that she'd used Michael's sock as a tanning mitt... And had turned it inside out absent-mindedly and put it back in Michael's drawer - with all the fake tan still inside!
Sharing his experience on social media, Michael found out that he isn't alone - with more males coming forward to say they've been accidentally stained .. such as Johnny Thompson who also shared a picture of his foot.
Since that incident, Stephanie has treated herself to a new tanning mitt.. so Michael's socks should stay tan free from now on!
