  • Greatest Hits Radio DJ Pat Sharp joked about ‘getting on woman’s t**s’ at awards
  • Events boss Lizzy Eaton said she was ‘violated’ by ‘sexualised’ comments

Radio DJ Pat Sharp lost his presenting job last night after reducing a woman to tears by making a crude joke about her breasts at an awards show. 

The star of 1990s ITV show Fun House, who was the celebrity guest host, ‘humiliated’ events boss Lizzy Eaton by joking about ‘getting on your t**s’ as he handed her a T-shirt with his face on it, which she said made her feel ‘violated’.

Greatest Hits Radio, where the 61-year-old has presented a show since 2019, said his contract was due to expire at the end of this month but he will ‘not return to the station with immediate effect’.

While hosting at the industry event in London last Friday, Sharp gave Ms Eaton a T-shirt adorned with an old photo of him sporting his trademark ’90s mullet captioned: ‘Pat Sharp – AS SEEN ON FUN HOUSE – LOOKING SHARP SINCE 1982’.

The ex-I’m a Celebrity contestant then remarked: ‘That’s the only way I’ll get on your t**ts today.’

The events director then threw the T-shirt at Sharp and walked off the stage in tears, the Sun reported.

After the incident at the Conference News Agency Awards at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, Ms Eaton slammed Sharp, saying: ‘I was publicly humiliated in a sexual nature, by the celebrity host of an industry event, on stage in front of 400 of my colleagues and peers.

‘Afterwards I was in complete shock and hadn’t really processed what happened. Today I am struggling with it – I feel sad, dirty and, frankly, violated,’ she posted on LinkedIn.

‘I have worked incredibly hard to earn my reputation and hopefully be an inspiration to other young women in the events industry. Yesterday however, I was belittled, sexualised and objectified in front of hundreds of people I respect.’

Sharp has since apologised and said last night: ‘Last Friday, I made a joke on stage which was not well received. I upset one individual in particular and for that I am truly sorry.

‘I apologised at the event to anyone who was offended and I have apologised to the individual personally too.’

The DJ has since made an apology, saying: 'Last Friday, I made a joke on stage which was not well received. I upset one individual in particular and for that I am truly sorry'

The event organisers have also apologised which Ms Eaton says she has accepted but she said the ‘shame and embarrassment I now feel will be with me for quite some time’.

A peer of Ms Eaton’s who attended the awards is said to have ‘called out’ Sharp publicly after his lewd comment.

She later said to Ms Eaton on social media: ‘The message you sent walking off that stage, sent a message to so many of our peers and women: We neither have to and will not tolerate this.

‘You stood with such grace and dignity and handled an awful bloody moment with such admirable strength.’
