image for Johnny Ball Admits He Was High Presenting Think Again
Johnny Ball had been at the Domestos again

Former children's TV presenter Johnny Ball has admitted being "so high" when he presented BBC1's Think Again that he "could hardly talk".

Speaking on a special documentary, 'A Load of Balls' the star said "Sometimes I was just so high. The adrenalin used to get to me, especially if I had some long multiplication or some really good algebra to demonstrate. It's a wonder I ever made it through the show. I was just so carried away with the excitement of Think Again. I used to get home and give the wife something to hang her towels on, if you know what I mean."

Think Again was the BBC's flagship children's show and Ball presented the show for several years. Mystery has always surrounded his departure from the BBC, but Ball has finally come clean. "I was addicted to Domestos. At first I could handle the pressure of hosting the show, but gradually I sought a little extra help. The toilets at Shepherd's Bush were well stocked. I thought I could handle it, but things got out of hand. I had a nasty fight with Christopher Lilliecrap and the rest is history."

The BBC has denied that there are plans to relaunch Think Again, or its mathematics only sister Think of a Number. Spokesperson Matthew Hoggard said "Never heard of them. Johnny Who?"
