Osborne's saucy farewell to Fogarty
Chancellor George Osborne has sent a suggestive message for a BBC radio presenter after she admitted to having erotic dreams about him.
Mr Osborne's message was played during Shelagh Fogarty's final breakfast show on Radio 5 Live before she moves to a lunchtime slot.
He wished her well in the message, before saying she would enjoy the extra sleep in her new role, adding: "More hours for those dreams you've been having."
The subject of erotic dreams was discussed with a guest on the programme earlier this year and co-presenter Nicky Campbell mentioned that a member of the team had dreamt of Mr Osborne.
When it was revealed that the person in question was Fogarty, she admitted: "I'm rumbled, I'm going to come clean now. For political balance, you need to know that some years before it was Neil Kinnock."
Mr Osborne was asked to record a message as part of a farewell package to Fogarty from the rest of the team on the breakfast show.
He said: "Well, Shelagh, it's George Osborne here, the Chancellor of the Exchequer. I just wanted to say it's sad to be losing you from the breakfast programme, but I know you'll do a great job on the lunchtime programme.
"It does give you, of course, more hours' sleep every day. More hours for those dreams you've been having. And so I'm sure you'll have sweet dreams and I look forward to being interviewed by you on your lunchtime programme."
