Alex Zane is clearly an advocate of faking it until you make it. The presenter, who is currently filming series eight of Rude Tube for Channel 4, decided it was best to keep his inexperience at manning a radio desk a secret from the Xfm bosses when he first started at the station.
“I had to lie a bit,” he tells IdeasTap magazine. “I told them I knew how to do it, but I had no idea… The first time I was left on my own was one of the most terrifying experiences of my life. The show was terrible because it was a man with fear in his voice.”
That’s just how The Londoner sounded the first time we had to talk to intimidating VIPs.
