Shelagh Fogarty - breakfast scab

Fogarty scab

Starting strikebreaking early in the day, Radio 5 co-anchor Shelagh Fogarty scabbed on her colleagues during the 2005 BBC strike.

At 7am on the day of the strike against 4,000 job cuts, Shelagh Fogarty, co-anchor of the 5 Live breakfast show, came on live, though without her sidekick Nicky Campbell.

Accidentally or deliberately, she didn't give herself a name-check, a strategy foiled by the sports reporter, Alistair Bruce-Ball, who cheerfully said "Thanks, Shelagh" as she handed over to him.

The Radio 5 Live breakfast presenter broke ranks with most colleagues on station.
