UK Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett was tricked by comic Rory Bremner when he pretended to be Chancellor Gordon Brown, the comedian has said.
He phoned her on the day on 2005 general election, when she was environment secretary, and they discussed her Cabinet colleagues.
She gave frank assessments of some of them, advising "Gordon Brown" on who was performing well.
Mrs Beckett said she had "no recollection" of the conversation.
