Dry December for radio star

A RADIO presenter from Sheffield gave up booze for the festive period in a TV experiment to be screened today.

The experience of funnyman Toby Foster, a BBC Radio Sheffield presenter, has been captured for Inside Out: Dry December, to be shown on BBC One at 7.30pm.

Toby joined presenters from across England in giving up drinking for the whole of the festive period for the special edition of the regional current affairs programme.

He said: “I didn’t miss it and when I did have a drink on New Year’s Eve, I woke up feeling awful and I thought ‘why bother’. It’s nice to wake up feeling 100 per cent alert.”
