The picture was shared on a Fleet [Twitter story that lasts 24 hours] and it was rapidly deleted.

Addressing the mishap, he penned sincerely: “I’ve been hacked sorry everyone! Jeez.”

A Fleet doesn’t allow an upload to be shared, replied to publicly or embedded on to other pages.

In a follow up tweet, the Songs of Praise star gave some further clarification into the situation after some fans cast doubt on his denial.

“So sorry I don’t know what fleets is,” he wrote in his defence.

“Never heard of it!”

He continued to reassure his followers that it wouldn’t happen again.

“All back to normal – passwords changed – that was an interesting 20 mins…” he typed.

“Especially when I’m watching John Wick with the mother in law!!!”

A spokesman for the Walking In The Air singer told MailOnline his Twitter account had been hacked and the fleet has been deleted.

But those who got a glimpse of who they believed was indeed the singer at first, took to the comments section once again to share their thoughts in the form of jokes and sarcastic memes.

One wrote: “Is Schl***s of Praise on repeat?”

“It was most unexpected. Thanks for the surprise,” a second welcomed the excitement.

A third joked: “How desperate can you get to avoid the mother-in-law?”

A fourth quipped: “The old “John Wick” Cockney rhyming slang there.”

Someone else offered some friendly words of advice: “Don’t forget to enable 2 Factor Auth and use a password manager!”

With the huge response the mistake had generated, Aled’s name began trending on Twitter, causing others to try and find out what they had missed.

One user joked: “30 years ago, if I was asked ‘what will you be doing in 30 years time?’, I doubt I would have answered ‘searching for a picture of Aled Jones’ c**k on a thing called Twitter on a miniature computer that can fit in your pocket”

Another agreed: “Gary Barlow singing ‘Three Lions’ and Aled Jones flashing his diddle on Fleets, is it? I think that’s enough Twitter for tonight. Maybe forever.”
