Here's the story of how a girl got herself in a sorry situation - wedged upside down between two windows, in her date's toilet. All just so she could retrieve her own poop.

We wished we were kidding but we're not, so let's start from the top.

According to reports, Bristol University postgraduate student Liam Smyth went on a Tinder date in early August.

The pair ended back at Smyth's apartment for drinks and to watch a Scientology documentary (how romantic).

Midway through, his date needed to use the bathroom, but unfortunately in the process, clogged up the toilet. And that's when the chain of unfortunate chain events started.

In a panic, the girl scooped out her poop and attempted to throw it out the window, except, it wasn't actually a window, but a ledge sealed off by another pane of glass on the other side.

So the excrement, which was wrapped up in a piece of tissue, fell between the gap and settled comfortably on the ledge below.

Kudos to the poor girl for bravely deciding to confess to Smyth about what she'd done.

We're not sure how he reacted, but the pair decided the situation needed rectifying.

Smyth thought of finding a hammer and chisel to smash open the window, but his date - who happened to be an amateur gymnast, had other ideas.

She was convinced she could retrieve it and so dived in head first to pick up her stool.

She managed to bag it up and pass it over to Smyth and all was good, until she had to get back out. Despite Smyth's best efforts to pull her out, she was well and truly stuck.

"Try as we might, we could not remove her from the window. She was stuck fast, upside down in the gap," wrote Smith on his GoFundMe page (we'll come to that later).

In the end, firemen had to be called and after surveying the situation - and we're guessing stifling a few laughs, they got her out with hammer and tools in about 15 minutes.

Now, because Smyth had to repair the window and as he's a poor student, Smyth decided to set up a GoFundMe crowdfunding page to raise the more than 300 pounds (S$530) it would cost to replace the window.

Amazingly, thanks to Smyth's account of events which has since gone viral, the page has now raised 1,564 pounds as of writing.

Smyth said the excess funds raised will be split between two charities - Toilet Twinning, "a charity building and maintaining flushing toilets in the developing world", and also to the local firefighters'charity, but of course.

But in an update today (Sept 6), Smyth said he has been overwhelmed by the response and he's had a few offers to have the windows replaced, free of charge. He's also decided that 100 per cent of the donations will go to charity instead.

He wrote: "I'm astounded by the response to this, as these are two fantastic causes. I'm currently working on my MSc dissertation, so I'm not interested in any more press requests. I would love it if you carried on donating, it's been a crazy day!"

And if you thought a budding love story of such tragi-comedic proportions would be stopped dead in its tracks, you'd be wrong.

Turns out, they'd met up a second time after the incident, where they discussed the crowdfunding page.

And, he says he doesn't rule out seeing her again.

"She's a lovely girl - I'm not sure what's going to happen - I'm really busy with my dissertation at the moment but I'd certainly be open to seeing her again," Daily Mail reported.

If it all works out, this would be one hell of a first-date story to tell their kids, that's for sure.
