WATCH: Future Indy Editor’s Awkward TV Debut

Amol Rajan the unfortunate man holding the mic on Channel 5’s Wright Stuff a few years back. In fairness he was a good sport about it:

“Camera 4, the one that gets right up in your face – my face – caught my swivelling around to Wright in bafflement, shamelessly revealing myself to be the kipper that had been proverbially “done”. What the camera could not detect, but which posterity should nevertheless record, is the sound of the gallery staff – the director, producers, editors, autocue bunnies – screaming in my ear: “Get the bloody mic away from him, Amol! Move the mic away!” And, for reasons I still cannot fathom, I declined this request, so that the microphone sat just below Eric’s lips as he ventilated his final enquiries: “You know, like a bit of man-on-man action? Do you fancy a bum?””

How far he has come…
