Bless her, she had a fit of the giggles this morning just after reading a story about one of the first recordings ever made.
Unfortunately it lead straight into an announcment about somebody passing away. Embarassed

Still I couldn't help laughing, proves she is human. Laughing

Clip here

She frequently got the giggles reading out some of the cuttings sent in for R4's "The News Quiz" over the years.... Very Happy

This was the subject of the 'National Anthem' on Steve Lamacq's 6 music show. They even played the clip. Of course I was reminded of a couple of years ago when 'Boggy' Marsh corpsed during the traffic news (it was before Lynn Bowles got to read it on Terry Wogan's show) and again during the news (it was the story of when that guy launched a firework rocket from his arse - I wonder if he can sit down yet! Shocked ) This is what was played in the end for Charlotte: Joy Division - 'She's Lost Control'

I've got those clips of John Marsh somewhere, I'll see if I can find them as they are very funny. He actually lost it twice in one week doing the travel news Laughing

Way back in the early days of R2, an announcer called Peter Latham had a similar uncontrollable giggle whilst reading about a man whose wife divorced him because he had a pet snake. The woman got custody of the children whilst her husband was given custody of the snake. Mr Latham had been noticeably giggling throughout the story and was finally defeated by the custody arrangements! I know, because I heard it all happen.

You can hear CG's corpsing at 02:08 and the news item it generated at 02:51 on Listen Again for Friday's "Today".... and it does sound like 'a bee in a bottle'! Laughing
