A naked man has been rescued by firefighters after becoming stuck in a top-loading washing machine.

The unnamed man from Victoria, Australia told crews he had been planning to surprise his girlfriend when he became trapped, The Australian reported.

The 20-year-old was popped free of his confines after he was greased with olive oil.

Sergeant Michelle De Araugo told Shepparton News: “He was very well wedged in there and we were concerned for his health and wellbeing. It was just a game gone wrong.

“It would be fair to say the gentleman was very embarrassed.”

It was lucky the man was naked, said First Constable Ingram Luke.

He told ABC News: “I guess if he’s going to get into a washing machine it’s best if he has no clothes on to be about to get him out like that.

“I guess the clothes can provide a bit of resistance to try to get him out.
