Jeremy Vine is one of the nation’s most loved broadcasters. He is the voice of BBC Radio 2’s midday phone in, topical issues show. The show covers all types of subjects as well as a regular feature about allotments - (who knew the latter would take off??) Jeremy also hosts topical shows on TV such as the “Jeremy Vine” show, first aired in 2018.
I was fairly confident that I’d meet a nice man, but little did I know that he’d be so full of energy, give so much for the camera and be genuinely fun to work with. I should maybe have realised that he could give the camera some unusual moves after reading some of the comments he got when participating in Strictly Come Dancing: “a stork that had been struck by lightning”..
Jeremy totally got where we were trying to go with the shoot.. He played ball and he gave his all. His body shape allows him to throw out shapes that fit somewhere between slap stick, carry on films, cartoons and high fashion. Jeremy’s talent is wasted on topical shows and radio - he should be a show man. Enter a stage with big red curtains rolling back. He should be at a place where he is able to use his physique and give us a visual show. Maybe he should have a workout video - although I have the feeling it may break a few backs….
