Zoe Ball apologises for making co-star cry
Zoe Ball consoled her co-star Mike Williams on her BBC Radio 2 show this morning after a personal letter left him in tears.
The presenter read out the note from the sports reporter’s former teacher, who had wished him all the best in his new job on Match of the Day.
As he came into the studio, Zoe, 52, revealed she had received something “rather lovely” for him in the post following World Teachers’ Day earlier this month.
She then proceeded to read out the heartfelt letter as her co-star could be heard sniffling, seemingly crying.
Swiftly after concluding the reading, Zoe was heard saying, “Oh, darling” as Mike struggled to contain his emotions.

He went on to say: “Ah, Tony Butler honestly, I’m sorry… that’s really got me.”
While being consoled by Zoe, Mike continued to express his love for his old “beautiful” teacher.
“Honestly, so much love for him,” he told listeners and went on to share his fondest memories.
He continued: “It’s fantastic to hear from him, I’m going to find his address and make contact again with him.”
After encouraging that they should meet, Zoe added: “I’m sorry to make you cry, but that’s such a wonderful letter.”

The presenter went on to offer Mike a cuddle as she moved on to play a song.
Zoe herself knows all too well what it’s like to get emotional while on the airwaves.
Back in March, she admitted to feeling sad as she said farewell to her fellow presenter Ken Bruce.
In response to a listener at the time, she said: “I’m very good, a bit emotional because it’s Ken’s last day today and we love him so much!”
Zoe went on to say his departure had hit the whole team, adding: “Actually we’re making a fuss and he hates a fuss.”
Paying tribute to her pal on Instagram, she went on to call him “class act” while listening to his final show in her car.
The presenter left BBC Radio 2 team after 31 years to move to Greatest Hits radio.
The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show airs daily from 6.30am on BBC Radio 2.
