The cheeky YouTube footage has been flooding Gok’s Twitter account @therealgokwan during his appearance ITVs Loose women.
A flash tweet is when a group of Twitter followers Tweet another person/organisation on the same day, at the same time with the same topic.
Pauline, 50, is an avid campaigner to raise awareness about the importance of education on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.
She had a mastectomy, reconstructive surgery and chemotherapy, before founding the charity in Par.
In the past Pauline has carried out a series of stunts as well as launching Bosom Buddies UK (BB)-branded merchandise.
In the YouTube footage Pauline asks Gok if he can guess which of her breasts has had reconstructive surgery.
“We are going after the fabulous Gok Wan to be the Bosom Buddies UK ‘Bangers Ambassador’ a) because he is such an avid supporter of women and b) because we know how much he loves bangers!”
"As far as I am aware, this has never been done before on a global scale in aid of breast cancer," said Pauline, who was diagnosed with the disease in 2010.
"This has the potential to be absolutely mega."
Pauline added: "Most important to us is going into schools and educating 16-year-old girls on the signs and symptoms and how to check themselves.
"This is so important because one in eight women get breast cancer.
"You think, if you have a daughter and she has lots of friends, someone she knows or you know is going to be affected.
"We're doing our best to educate girls but we need to get a celebrity to help us.
