Ryan Seacrest got a $6,000 toilet for his birthday
The state of the art commode was installed without the `American Idol` host and radio presenter`s knowledge in his Los Angeles home while he was working in New York over the New Year.
Ryan - who earns an estimated $50 million a year - came home to find his friend Laurence had the Toto Automatic Toilet fitted in his personal bathroom as a present for his 36th birthday, which took place on December 24.
Ryan - who is dating Julianne Hough - told listeners to his KISS FM radio show: "A Toto is an automatic toilet. Laurence had it installed and I didn`t know about it. He snuck into my house with a plumber and had it installed.
"It has comfort functions, it has a remote control lid, at all times the seat is warm. It has buttons and lights all over it.
"You get close to it and it has a sensor and it just opens up.
"All night last night I had bottles of water by my bed drinking them, just so I had to go pee, it was so fun."
Other features of the top of the range toilet include a night light, three washing modes, a hands free auto flush, air purifying system and an integrated warm air dryer, so Ryan won`t, in theory, need to use toilet paper.
