"Janet Sweep Porter" has been announced as the winner of a Wyre Council naming competition.
There were dozens of entries on the online contest - which was to name a new street sweeping vehicle.
"Janet Sweep Porter" won 67% of the votes in a final heat against "Wayne Sweep".
The real Janet Street Porter was made aware of the story on ITV's Loose Women this morning.
Some honourable mentions in the naming competition include: "Bruce Springclean", "Kate Brush", "Dustbin Hoffman", and, of course, "Dusty McDustface".
"Janet Sweep Porter" will enter service alongside its sister vehicle - "Meryl Sweep" - in a few week's time.
