Gareth Cliff is darem a dog.
The shock jock has admitted to giving fellow Idols SA judge Mara Louw a spiked drink that led to her notorious slurring and swearing on live TV.
In his new tell-all book, due to be released on Thursday, Cliff admits he poured the vodka for Louw in 2010, calling it a “memorable Mara moment”.
Her contract was not renewed after the incident.
Louw wrote in her own autobiography, due to be released next year, that the incident has “tarnished” her reputation.
She told the Sunday Times: “You’ll be shocked at what lengths people will go to get you fired in this industry when they want to put in their friends.”
But Cliff said he had no beef with Mara, saying he loved her and she was like a mama to him.
