Ben Shephard recalls ‘throwing’ Meat Loaf out of studio after ‘extraordinary’ interview

OHMYGOSSIP — Ben Shephard has recalled Meat Loaf being “thrown” out of a studio because the singer didn’t want to leave an interview, as he paid tribute to the star.
The ‘Bat Out of Hell’ hitmaker has passed away aged 74, and ‘Good Morning Britain’ co-host Ben remembered a time when he was presenting GMTV’s showbiz round-up show ‘Entertainment Today’ with Jenni Falconer and a “so much larger than life” Meat Loaf didn’t want the experience to end.
Ben said: “I was lucky enough to interview him a number of years ago. Jenni and I, when we hosted ‘Entertainment Today’, some you might remember it was a Friday morning show. Part of ‘GMTV’.
“Meat Loaf came in and he was so much larger than life, in the end we had to throw him out of the studio! He didn’t want to go.
“He spent the whole time in the studio with us. It was an extraordinary experience.”
Ben’s ‘GMB’ co-host Kate Garraway said: “He virtually took over, I remember that very well.”
Kate also recalled previously interviewing Meat Loaf, remembering he turned up “ready for a performance” and was “very loud”.
She said: “I’ve interviewed him as well and it’s one of those things where he comes ready for a performance, doesn’t he?
“He’s not one of those people that is larger than life and extraordinary on stage and then you meet them in real life, and they’re a little bit mousy and ordinary, he is absolutely right there, very loud as well.”
Ben replied: “Huge, he’s huge in every way, his size, his scale, his noise.”
And Ben also recounted a story of a celebrity golf tournament at The Celtic Manor Resort in Wales, when Meat Loaf played and then serenaded the crowd with a rendition of his hit ‘Bat Out of Hell’ while driving a golf buggy down the course.
He said: “It was one of the most extraordinary experiences of my life, Meat Loaf was playing, Alice Cooper was there, Bruce Forsyth – it was an amazing experience.
“On the 18th hole, Meat Loaf got in the back of the golf buggy, they got ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ playing out of the back of the buggy, he’s driving down the 18th singing ‘Bat Out of Hell’ to all of these fans down the sides of the 18th hole at Celtic Manor.
“It was one of the most remarkable moments.”
A statement on Meat Loaf’s official Facebook page earlier today (21.01.22) confirmed his passing.
It read: “Our hearts are broken to announce that the incomparable Meat Loaf passed away tonight with his wife Deborah by his side. Daughters Pearl and Amanda and close friends have been with him throughout the last 24 hours.
“His amazing career spanned 6 decades that saw him sell over 100 Million albums worldwide and star in over 65 movies, including “Fight Club”, “Focus”, “Rocky Horror Picture Show” and “Wayne’s World.” “Bat Out of Hell” remains one of the top 10 selling albums of all time.
“We know how much he meant to so many of you and we truly appreciate all of the love and support as we move through this time of grief in losing such an inspiring artist and beautiful man.
“We thank you for your understanding of our need for privacy at this time. From his heart to your souls…don’t ever stop rocking! (sic)”
