Only the Daily Mail could make someone’s wedding day sound slightly tawdry from their description of the groom.
‘Shamed former Blue Peter presenter Richard Bacon…’ runs the opening to the story, which actually is more about the fact that Bacon got married and postponed throat surgery, so he could make his big day.
I know that scandal follows you around, but Richard Bacon was sacked from Blue Peter, after being snapped sniffing coke, 10 years ago. That’s right, not last year, not 2 years ago, not even 5 years ago. This happened in 1998.
Since then, he’s forged a successful radio career and has left the scandal and his kids’ TV roots far behind.
I do find it amazing that things follow people around, regardless of whether they carry onto to have a successful career, or not.
Does the Daily Mail really even need to mention it?
OK, so he was stupid to get caught, but it’s hardly even worth mentioning, is it? How irritating must it be always to be remembered for one small thing, rather than all the other big stuff you’ve done elsewhere.
