Boycott hangs up on 5live’s Mark Chapman

BBC Radio 5 live presenter Mark Chapman’s interview with former Yorkshire and England cricketer Geoffrey Boycott came to an abrupt end last night after Geoffrey announced he was going to watch CSI.

The end of the conversation with Mark Chapman and Michael Vaughan was caught on webcam too, as you can watch below.

Boycott, who had been booked for a half-hour slot said: “And anyhow that’s all I’ve got to say I’m going to watch CSI thank you very much.” It caused an outburst of laughter in the studio once the presenters had realised he had actually hung up the phone.

Silence then followed Mark’s attempt to thank him for his time. “When Geoffrey’s booked for half an hour, he’s booked for half an hour,” Chapman said. It happened during The Tuffers and Vaughan Cricket Show yesterday.
