Charlie Sloth Leaves BBC Radio 1 After Telling Edith Bowman To 'F**k Her Life'

Remember Kanye's stage invasion during Taylor Swift's big VMA moment? He grabbed the mic from a young Swifty and said: "I'm sorry, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time". It was a painful watch, that's for sure.

Now imagine that but fast forward to 2018, and replace Kanye with BBC Radio 1 DJ, Charlie Sloth.

Sloth's outburst came at the Arias ceremony in Leeds, after he was beaten by Scottish radio DJ, Edith Bowman, in the best specialist music show category.

Sloth, 31, jumped on stage and said: "Edith Bowman, fuck your life... I just wanna say BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Saturday night rap show. Fuck your life. God bless."

Ooops, there's nothing more entertaining than a sore loser.

According to the Mirror, Radio 1 confirmed that his work has been terminated and said in a statement: "We have agreed with Charlie Sloth that he will not be presenting any further editions of The 8th and The Rap Show for Radio 1 and 1Xtra. New presenters will be announced for both shows in coming weeks."

Sloth has been working at the BBC for a decade and was due to complete another 10 shows but revealed this would no longer happen.

And what did Edith have to say about this whole fiasco? Well, she simply poked fun at Sloth the morning after the awards ceremony. We bet he's really going to appreciate that one...

People have contacted her to congratulate her for the win.

One said: "Well done on winning Edith. Richly deserved."

Another added: "He stole your moment. I was in the audience and heard it all, tho he got a right bollocking from the audience and his now ex-boss who replied in kind to his rant."

And a third commented: "Soz, Charlie. Edith was smashing it on Radio 1 before you were out of nappies."

Nothing like rubbing salt in the wounds, is there?
