Nolan has teething problems on air

Controversial presenter Stephen Nolan refuses to let anything shut him up. So when his two front teeth fell out live on air, the 33-year-old continued on with the show, before heading straight to the dentist to get them fixed.

And he was back on air again yesterday - after the temporary crowns were reinstated.

The mouthy presenter was involved in a heated debate with a listener, when he bit into a sweet, causing the crown to come loose.

He struggled on with the show, lisping his way through it, while various callers phoned in to abuse him about the mishap.

Stephen said: "I'm having my teeth fixed after years of neglect involving toffee rolls and chew bars and I am getting huge amounts of dentistry done all at once.

"I was chewing a white toffee bon bon while arguing with a caller. He wound me up and I bit on it right in the centre of my temporary crown while shouting at him - it was my own fault."

After some speedy dentistry yesterday, Stephen returned to the airwaves, refusing to let a little teething trouble put him off his stride.

It may take longer than you expect to reach your goal, but don't let that deter you. The best things in life involve an element of sacrifice. A reference from a powerful friend will help you get into an exclusive group or prestigious society. Your new friends and contacts might eventually be able to give you a helping hand professionally, but that's all in times to come.More
