The latest episode of the comedy series exploring unusual and perhaps never truly founded stories looks at an encounter the US president had with one of the 20th century’s greatest artists.

Back in 1984, Donald Trump (Anthony Atamanuik) purchased an American football team, and held auditions for cheerleaders in Trump Tower. The judges were celebrities, including the artist Andy Warhol (Jack McBrayer).

The reason why the master of pop art took on the job was that Trump had previously commissioned him for an artwork that Trump never paid for, so Warhol decided to use this new job as a change to get his money.

Urban Myths: Andy & The Donald is on Sky Arts at 21.00.
