One Twitter user wrote: ‘What does it think it’s going to do with one trainer? It’s got four feet [sic]’. 

This quip received the response: ‘Yes but they’re small so they’d all fit in the one shoe.’ 

Providing an anecdote, someone else regaled: ‘We had a fox run off with one of my sons wellies when he was 3. His favourite blue wellies with footballs on. He was devastated as it ran off down the garden with it. I still don’t think he has got over the trauma and he is 22 now [sic]’.

Last year, Annie Mac her decision to leave Radio 1 as she admitted to feeling like the ‘oldest person in the room’ at work, while reflecting on tokenism she has faced during her long-standing career.

The Irish DJ announced she would be leaving the BBC station in April 2021 after 17 years on-air and declared it would be the ‘end of an era’.

And on 30 July, she presented her final Radio 1 show before bidding farewell, as she noted personal and professional reasons for her departure.

‘Having a show every evening is just not sustainable,’ she said to Radio Times. ‘I wanted to be around in the evenings as my youngest kid starts school in September – but really, lots of things have come together to make this decision feel very easy.

‘It was definitely not spontaneous, it had been on my mind for a while. There’s something very nice about the feeling of steering your own ship.’   

Annie, who shares two sons with her husband DJ Tom Bell, said she’s felt for some time that her work schedule was impinging on her domestic life, but hopes to continue working with the BBC in a different capacity.

She added: ‘I love the BBC and hope at some point I can come back. It’s not walking away from radio, it’s just walking away from that slot.’
