It isn’t day by day somebody has to disclaim snorting cocaine off a tortoise.
However if you end up tv star Richard Bacon, famously sacked from Blue Peter for taking cocaine in 1998, it is all half and parcel.
Richard was pressured handy in his Blue Peter badge simply 18 months into the position, and was the primary presenter to have his contract terminated mid-run.
He admitted to taking cocaine in a nightclub, and the BBC’s head of kids’s programmes Lorraine Heggessey issued an announcement damning his actions.
She mentioned: “It’s unhappy that such a gifted presenter as Richard Bacon has not solely let himself and his colleagues down however, most necessary of all, he has let down the tens of millions of kids who watch Blue Peter.”
After being informed that he would by no means work in tv once more, Richard went on to forge a profitable profession on radio and with the BBC and Channel 4.
