Molan quits booze after drunk-dialling premier

Erin Molan has self-imposed a January booze ban after drunk-dialling NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian on a girls night out.

Molan fessed up while interviewing Berejiklian on the new Hughesy, Ed & Erin 2Day FM breakfast show, revealing it wasn't a solo slip-up.

"I have actually quit drinking for January right but I've had a couple of indiscretions," the popular sports presenter and NRL host said.

"It might have been 11pm, potentially midnight or 1am, I am not quite sure. We (fellow television presenters Belinda Russell and Lizzie Pearl) were talking and we clearly need to get lives but we were talking about how well you (Berejiklian) have handled the pandemic and how we all look up to you. Then I said to the girls, Gladys and I are basically best friends, do you want me to call her and I will tell her how we all feel."

Unfortunately the call rang out.

"So the Premier of the state didn't answer, nor has she returned my calls since. I just wanted to check the status of our friendship Gladys," Molan said.

Berejiklian diplomatically assumed it was a pocket dial.

"Can I be honest, I did have a missed call after midnight and you know what I thought Erin? I thought you'd pocket dialled me," she said.

"I thought that I did return your text Erin, if I didn't, I apologise. In my head I did, don't worry."
