Sarah Jane Honeywell used to be a CBeebies staple but now the TV presenter has opened up about being fired by the children’s TV channel after posing nude to promote veganism for PETA back in 2011.
Sarah also admitted that after being given the sack her close pal Justin Fletcher, otherwise known as Mr. Tumble, gave her the silent treatment and the two still haven’t patched up their friendship.
Yikes, that’s got to hurt.
Sarah stripped off and posed alongside some fake chips and peas on a plate in Trafalgar Square, with the intention being that she represents a piece of meat.
However, the move made the headlines and CBeebies immediately dropped her.
Writing on her blog HoneyMumster, Sarah explained: “I got it all wrong and my naive need for transparency and for living my life with freedom got me the sack.
"I only have myself to blame I know that but the children loved me and I was passionate about giving them joy and I stupidly thought that would be enough.
"The day my picture went in the paper with the headline, ‘CBoobies’ I never heard from my lovely friend [Justin Fletcher] again.
"I understand why though. He had a very important, brilliant brand to protect. For the sake of children’s joy everywhere, I’m glad he chose them over me.
"He was such a huge and happy part of my life. It’s weird to think I will probably never see him again. Which does make my heart hurt quite a lot really.”
Ah come on Justin, it’s been years now - isn’t it time to let bygones be bygones?
