Twitter exaggeration in its purest form

Laura Woods has been forced to silence Twitter users who questioned what happened when she briefly dropped out of view when presenting the talkSPORT breakfast show last week.

Woods was joined alongside Jamie O’Hara and Trevor Sinclair as part of the line-up and during the show, Woods dropped out of view in order to disguise a yawn.

However Twitter did what Twitter does best and made a whole scene out of something that really wasn’t that much of a big deal.

Many tried to joke and accuse the presenter of taking drugs while on air, with several tweets claiming that Woods had “sniffed a line.”

Quick to put these frankly ludicrous rumours to an end, Woods was forced to respond and explain that it was nothing more than a simple yawn.

She said: “Bloody hell…I’m yawning you absolute donuts. It’s a live-streamed breakfast show. Give your heads a wobble.”

The presenter has been working on the talkSPORT breakfast show since 2020 where she shares duties with Alan Brazil, presenting on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

After she was first appointed to the role, she tweeted: “The talkSPORT breakfast show has been in the custody of the legendary Alan Brazil for nearly 20 years and I’m proud to take over his mantle, waking up sports fans at the start of the week.

“I’ve had great fun filling in for big Al and being part of the talkSPORT family. Now on Monday to Wednesday, listeners can expect more big guests, sports chat and classic talkSPORT fun at breakfast.”
