‘I ate a bit of DOG by accident’: Sara Cox reveals she once nibbled on a canine’s ‘elbow’ after ‘mistaking it for fried chicken in South Korea’
Sara Cox has revealed she once ‘ate a little bit of dog by accident’.
The DJ recalled: ‘It was in a fried chicken sort of bucket-style thing. It was only when I got to the bone I realised it wasn’t bone. It was kind of like an elbow.’
Oh dear: Sara Cox, 46, has revealed she once ‘ate a little bit of dog by accident’ while speaking on Alan Carr’s podcast Life’s A Beach
Sara – who often gushes over Beano, her Maltese Terrier, on social media – then insisted: ‘I would never, ever want to actively eat dog on purpose.’
The doting mother added: ‘It is a weird. My dogs will be listening like, “what?”‘
She also joked: ‘Hi to all the dog lovers out there!’
Opening up about her modelling stint in Seoul, Sara told Alan, 45: ‘They sent me to South Korea, Seoul, fashion capital of the world… not, so I went there and worked two separate trips and about five months in total.
Many moons ago: the BBC Radio 2 presenter, 46, explained the moment unfolded in Seoul when she was a teenager (pictured with her beloved Maltese Terrier Beano)
‘It’s amazing but if I went there now I’d be all like, “oh let’s really drink in the culture,” but I just drank their booze, I didn’t want any culture, all this amazing unusual food and I was just like, “there’s not even a McDonald’s here it’s rubbish!” Cos you’re 19, you don’t care.’
Last year, Sara rubbished claims she had ‘drifted apart’ from her partying pal Zoe Ball after years of friendship.
Speaking to The Mirror in October, Sara explained that since having children and moving further apart they’re not as close as they once were, but they still text regularly.
Sara and Zoe were regulars on the party scene throughout the 1990s, but it was reported last year they were ‘no longer close’ after she missed out on hosting the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show.
She said: ‘I always have to be careful what I say about Zoe because it always sounds like we’ve drifted apart, big drama, high hell and it’s just not.
‘We’ve always supported each other, we just live quite far away from each other.
‘We were friends and were out partying and then, you know, kids and life kind of happened. But it’s true that we text each other quite a lot now.’
Sara added that she and Zoe also chat on Zoom with their Radio 2 colleagues every Tuesday.
