Noel Fielding Axed From Buzzcocks
The tabloids have reported that Noel Fielding has been axed as a team captain on BBC2’s long-running music quiz Never Mind The Buzzcocks.
The raven-haired Jagger-phile and Mighty Boosh star was to become a permanent fixture on the show following previous appearances as a guest.
However, news of his drug-fuelled escapades has given the licence fee-financed BBC the willies, leading them to pull him from the show according to The Sun.
He owned up to taking cocaine, ecstasy, acid and magic mushrooms in an interview with the News Of The World. We’re coming over all Judge Judy here: Dumb!
“Noel is absolutely gutted,” said a source. “As soon as news of his drug use broke he was told that he was no longer wanted on Buzzcocks. BBC bosses are very strict when it comes to drug users being on the screen… He’s really disappointed because he was looking forward to the gig so much.”
Although we all knew what Fielding was getting up to, it’s maybe not the wisest thing to confide with the News Of The World about it. May this be a lesson to all of you who think drugs are cool.
