ZOE BALL apologised to Sir Bob Geldof on her BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show this morning, after he was less than impressed with the team for cutting his song short live on air.
Sir Bob Geldof told the BBC to “wise up” as he called them out for being “namby-pambies” on Zoe Ball’s BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show today. He kicked off the chat telling the presenter that he still wasn’t a fan of Mondays, in reference to The Boomtown Rats’ hit. The 50-year-old presenter went on to wish him a happy belated birthday after he turned “70 years young” last week. In response, he said the age was “extremely old” and jokingly told her to “stop the nonsense” at suggesting it wasn’t.
The singer went on to correct the presenter for referring to him as just a musician.
“I’m a mega global international rockstar”, he said and urged Zoe to “get it correct”.
In response to his witty remarks, the presenter laughed as she said he was in “fine form” this morning.
Not one to hold back on his thoughts, Bob then slammed Liam Payne’s new single which Zoe played before their chat.

Bob said he thought the song was “awful”, adding he “almost put the phone down” when he heard it.
Zoe laughed off his comments and went on to play a snippet of the band’s new song titled And, I do.
After the track was aired, she told listeners she couldn’t play the full version as it wasn’t appropriate for daytime radio.
“You just played the end,” Bob chimed in, seeming unimpressed. “The track is four minutes long and you played the end.”
Zoe replied: “It’s not my fault Bob, it’s just the rules round here.”
He went on to query what was wrong with the seemingly inappropriate lyrics, which he claimed were only in one line of the song.
“Well look, I’m just doing what I’m told to do Bob, sorry,” she replied.
Swiftly moving on, the presenter went on to ask the musician if he had any upcoming plans to tour with the band.
