A radio DJ has lost his job after stopping the Queen’s Christmas message, telling listeners it was boring.
Birmingham-based BRMB presenter Tom Binns cut short the speech during his live show on Christmas Day, saying: “Two words: Bor-ing”.
The show was broadcast on BRMB, Wyvern in Herefordshire and Worcestershire, Mercia, in Warwickshire, and Beacon Radio in the Black Country.
Mr Binns, who is also a stand-up comedian, said it had just been a joke.
The stations’ owner Orion Media said a number of listeners had complained.
Mr Binns, who has previously been on BBC Radio 2 under the guise of spoof hospital DJ Ivan Brackenbury, said he had received a death threat following what he did.
