In a radio prank that went wrong, Fitzy and Wippa of Nova FM almost killed Ed Sheeran

Fitzy and Wippa nearly KILLED 2 celebrities (and their newsreader). Nova Radio hosts share their worst stunts for their 10th anniversary

Nova 96.9 breakfast hosts Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald and Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli celebrate 10 years on the Sydney airwaves this week.

And the popular duo marked the occasion on Friday by sharing some of their wildest stunts with

News.com.au

– including a prank that almost killed

Ed Sheeran

.

The British singer, 30, has made many appearances on

Fitzy & Wippa

but the presenters said two moments stood out for being particularly hazardous.

The first saw the pair arrange for Ed to surprise a group of fans at the Nova studios in Sydney, but they underestimated the fans’ enthusiasm.

‘One of them launched at him, wrapped her arms around Ed’s neck and would not let go. Security had to tear this girl off him,’ said Wippa.

Another chaotic moment involved executive producer Tom Ivey presenting Ed with a birthday cake in his own likeness.

The Perfect hitmaker leaned in to take a bite, but a piece of wire scratched his nose.

‘It could easily have gone straight up his nose,’ Fitzy said, adding that Ed realised he’d narrowly avoided serious injury by saying, ‘Thank god for that.’

Funnily enough, later that day a sound operator accidentally pushed a light over and it landed on Ed’s head, but didn’t cause any damage.

The radio funnymen also recalled giving celebrity chef Jamie Oliver food poisoning.

But before you assume they have a grudge against the British, they insisted it was by accident as a result of a kitchen oversight.

Fitzy and Wippa presented Jamie with a new snack they’d designed for that year’s Royal Easter Show: meat and three veg on a stick.

The snack had been prepared the night before and refrigerated, but someone had left it out of the fridge for five hours before Jamie sampled it on air.

‘Jamie joked at the time, “I’m going to get food poisoning,”‘ Fitzy said.

‘And we got told the next day he had to cancel a couple of interviews [that afternoon] because he wanted to go back to his hotel.’

Poor show: Other memorable segments included a rap battle with Boy George (right) that was ‘so bad’ despite the ’80s singer spending an hour preparing it

There was also a dicey moment when Nova FM newsreader Matt de Groot squared off for a boxing match with NRL star-turned-professional boxer Paul Gallen.

Paul didn’t hold back despite it being novelty match, and Matt was left with two fractured ribs and had to take several days off work.

Freya, a psychology student at 19 years old, hopes to shine in the Bake Off tent.

She posted online: “The secret has finally been revealed!”

Megan End White, a user wrote that “It’s wonderful that somebody is getting on a major programme that promotes vegan food. But please do not say that you’re passionate about ethics while you ride horses.”

Barbara Calvert, another named Barbara, added that “Freya cox taking out a photo is not changing anything, it’s just covering up the fact. If you’re still riding, then you shouldn’t call yourself vegan and certainly shouldn’t go on television claiming you’re vegan.

It’s not surprising that people are confused about veganism, as the philosophy is constantly being diluted.”

Others were quick to defend Freya, saying that veganism can mean different things for different people.

Farhana Muquith, a follower of mine wrote that she had never felt any superiority. You can be content, Damn!

Marianne Leadbitter wrote: “Wow. Many congratulations and best wishes to you.

You’ve shown that awareness is the most important step. I am so proud of you!

“I am shocked by some comments here. They’re shameful, and unneeded, I can’t wait for you to blow out all the other ones.”

Freya deleted her Facebook page in the midst of the comments.
