In case you missed it on our Facebook page earlier this week, the Chief Reporter of Southend News Network got interviewed by Victoria Derbyshire on BBC Two – take a look below …

It all started off nicely enough, and then in true BBC style it all turned into a bit of a grilling. Perhaps that was to be expected from a seasoned Beeb personality, but she seemed to loosen up a little bit when he cracked a joke about the ‘ethics’ of ‘Essex.’

Through the wonders of Facetime and 4G, she even had time to make wise crack about getting a Skype call and needing to finish the interview – unfortunately the ringing was coming from her end!

In case you also missed the interview on ITV a couple of days before, here it is! The Chief Reporter and Annie Humphrey chat about the upcoming release of Dartford Tolls, and there is even a brief glimpse of the music video …

Hopefully the gorilla mask will be to hand the next time that TV news come calling …
