A good few million teenage girls have Justin Bieber posters and merchandise, but Jenny McCarthy has said that, when she was younger, it was Jesus who was her idol.
The former Playboy star made the bizarre comparison on Nightline, in support of her new memoir 'Bad Habits: Confessions Of A Recovering Catholic'.

The former Singled Out host took the show on a tour of her childhood home and revealed the extent of her love for Christian paraphernalia.
"Jesus was my Bieber," she said.
Her memoir sees her discuss how she once wanted to be a nun, and how being named Playmate of the Year by Playboy upset her Catholic parents.
The 39-year-old, who turns 40 in November, has previously been married to John Mallory Asher and Jim Carrey.
