Charlie Sloth has left Radio 1 early after pulling a Kanye at the Audio and Radio Industry Awards (ARIAs).

The 31-year-old shocked attendees of the ceremony as he invaded the stage in protest of Edith Bowman winning an award over him.

And now, the BBC has confirmed that Charlie will not be completing his final shows as planned.

A statement read: We have agreed with Charlie Sloth that he will not be presenting any further editions of The 8th and The Rap Show for Radio 1 and 1Xtra. New presenters will be announced for both shows in coming weeks.

Sloth was seemingly furious at the ARIAs when Soundtracking with Edith Bowman won over 1Xtras Rap Show in the Best Specialist Music Show category.

He stormed on stage and shouted into the mic: Edith Bowman, fuck your life.

I just wanna say BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Saturday night Rap Show. Fuck your life. God bless.

Later on in the night, Radio 1 and 1Xtra Controller Ben Cooper said: Id just like to say Charlie Sloth has left the building and is leaving Radio 1 & 1Xtra. Apologies.

Edith poked fun at the DJ the following morning, tweeting: Morning @CharlieSloth hope you are feeling ok this morning.

Sloth has since taken to Twitter to apologise for the bants.

Charlie confirmed earlier this month that he was leaving Radio 1 after nearly a decade, saying: After almost 10 years of dedicating my life to BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra and achieving everything I set out to do, I have decided the time has come to leave the BBC and seek a new challenge.
