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.
