My Layton Williams interview for BBC Three

My series of articles in celebration of the reboot of BBC Three’s Bad Education ended with my interview with its new co-lead Layton Williams. The Everybody’s Talking About Jamie actor returns to the show that made him famous – but this time, he’s taking control.

BBC Three: What makes a great Christmas special?

We all have our own sign for when the Christmas period has begun. For some people, it is when Mariah Carey does her yearly November 1 post. For others, it is the first day they see the “Holidays are Coming” Coke ad.

Though I’m the kind of pessimist who can’t help but see success as the lull before everything goes wrong, I do have to admit it has been a good work week for me. A few days after my Cara Delevingne interview became (I think) the most-read piece I have ever written, BBC homepage were kindContinue reading “Look who made the BBC homepage…”

BBC Three: Cara Delevingne interview

It’s not every day that you get to speak to a supermodel about her sexuality. For BBC Three’s new show Planet Sex with Cara Delevingne, I got to speak to the model-actress about being queer and the trauma of growing up like that in ’90s Britain. There was a few exclusives in there. It wasContinue reading “BBC Three: Cara Delevingne interview”
