Sarah-Jane Honeywell used to be a prominent CBeebies presenter – that is, until she posed nude for a cause she believed in and was sacked.
For the animal rights charity, PETA, Sarah-Jane decided to strip down and pose with a gigantic fake chips and peas – but her goodwill was shattered when her photo was printed in a newspaper under the headline ‘Cboobies’, reports the Daily Mail.
This was back in 2011, but recently, Sarah-Jane took to her blog to post a heartfelt story about how she lost her job and how it ruined one of her biggest friendships – with Mr Tumble.
In the post, it’s clear that Honeywell is still heartbroken by the whole affair, claiming she won’t even let her son tune into CBeebies.
Writing about the end of her friendship with Justin Fletcher, who plays Mr Tumble, she said:
I regret losing my wonderful friendship with Justin. The day my picture went in the paper with the headline, ‘Cboobies’ I never heard from my lovely friend again.
However, she said that she understands why he ended their friendship, saying he has a ‘very important, brilliant brand to protect’.
It is rumoured that Mr Tumble earns six figure sums for his childish live shows.
In a heartwarming message, she added:
For the sake of children’s joy everywhere, I’m glad he chose them over me.
Justin loves the kids and he is passionate about entertaining them and that’s why I do love him.
I actually feel quite emotional writing this and I think it’s the first time I’ve truly admitted to myself that, I miss my old mucker.
Although he’s got a brand to keep up, surely it wouldn’t do Tumble any harm to get in touch and say sorry about obliterating their friendship over a semi-nude photoshoot to raise awareness about animal rights…
Just saying, Tumble sounds like a bit of a dick to me…
