S4C viewing figures halved overnight after woman’s telly goes on the blink

Welsh TV channel S4C has lost half of its viewers after one woman’s telly went on the blink.

Ethel LardArse, from Machynlleth, was watching Pobol y Cwm when her telly gave off a slight ‘pop’ and turned itself off.

She told WalesOnCraic:

“I was only watching Pobol because there was jack shit on the other channels. I’d just made myself a cup of tea to have with my Wagon Wheel when there was this sort of ‘pop’ noise and the bloody thing turned itself off. There was a little bit of smoke so I didn’t dare turn it back on. I didn’t know what to do as I always watch telly so I went upstairs and frigged myself senseless for two hours instead.”

Ethel’s TV woes mean that S4C has now lost half of its viewers.

A spokesperson told WalesOnCraic:

“Obviously this is a big disappointment to us but we will rebuild and probably buy her a new telly. Do Radio Rentals still exist?”
