A US COMEDIAN is all over the news after admitting to completely making up that he escaped from the World Trade Center on 9/11.

Steve Rannazzisi told the story for years but has now admitted that it was a big lie. Apologising profusely.

Now we all tell little lies every now and then, but have you ever told a big whopper one?

Did you later admit it or is it still burning you inside? Feel free to share (if you dare).
