London: `Baywatch` star David Hasselhoff has confessed that he caused an emergency evacuation of a London hotel when he attempted to iron his shirts in the shower.
The 61-year-old actor said he was shocked when his steam shower caused firefighters to turn up at his hotel room door, reportedly.
"Someone set the fire alarm off in my hotel and all the lifeguards and firefighters came to my room and then I realised it was me that set off the fire alarm by accident. It looked like an episode of `Baywatch` and the guys were quite taken aback that I was there and I was just petrified that it was actually me.
"And then I got to see quite a lot of people in their dressing gowns as they had to evacuate the hotel, but it was fun," he said.
Quizzed on how he would managed to set the alarm off, he added, "I was actually steaming my shirts. My shirts were wrinkled and I can`t seem to get my girlfriend to go out and buy me a steam iron. She keeps forgetting.
"So I was steaming up my shower and waving my shirts around getting some wrinkles out because I don`t like to iron things... So I made a little steam shower and when I opened the door the steam went through the hotel and set off all the alarms. It was pretty funny."
