Royal prank call DJ returns to work
ONE of the Australian DJs at the centre of the royal prank call controversy in which a Bristol nurse was found hanged has returned to work.
Michael Christian is back on the air presenting the mid-morning show on Melbourne's Fox FM radio station.
The show he presented with co-host Mel Grieg, on sister station 2Day FM in Sydney, was suspended and eventually cancelled after the pair made the prank call to King Edward VII's Hospital in London in December.
They pretended to be the Queen and Prince Charles and asked about the health of the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, who was being treated at the hospital.

Nurse Jacintha Saldanha, 46, from Southmead, was found dead in her nurses’ quarters three days after she transferred the call to a colleague at London’s King Edward VII’s Hospital who then described Kate’s condition in detail.
Rhys Holleran, CEO of Austereo, which operates both radio stations, said: "We are happy to have Michael back on air.
"We have always supported our talent returning to work when appropriate and today marks that occasion for Michael.
"We look forward to welcoming Mel Greig back when the time is right."
Neither Mr Christian nor Ms Greig will be prosecuted over the hoax call, during which details of the Duchess of Cambridge's rare form of morning sickness were revealed.
An inquest found no suspicious circumstances over the death of Ms Saldanha, a mother of two who was born in India.
