In this thread we talk about, and list people who were drunk, incedentally, or deliberately (needed for the part) on TV, film, stage, whatever.
I remember oliver reed staggering, rat-arsed onto Parkinson. And I just watched des-oconnor make and drink egg-nogg (which I understand is alcoholic?) on ‘live’ (what they paradoxically call “recorded live”) tv.
So what other notable occurences of intoxication on screen (or radio even) can you list?
