T4 presenter sniffed pure ammonia at school


Rick Edwards hasn’t been able to smell properly since his teens.

‘I sniffed pure ammonia in a science lesson when I was 14,’ he explains.

‘It was extraordinarily painful and I haven’t been able to smell since.’

But the T4 presenter, 29, hopes the sense will come back eventually.

‘For a few years after that incident I couldn’t smell anything,’ he says.

‘But now if I sniff at something up close I can smell it.’
