Talk to Angela Scanlon about her Thanks a million podcastsThe One Show host explained:[My boyfriend at the time] Go to London I started working in London. And so did I — I was recruited, believe it or not, into a show called Rise, which I don’t know if you remember, was a breakfast show on Channel 4 and I became the entertainment reporter.

I’ve done all these parties with movie stars. So I would come to London every Thursday, then go with them on Thursday and Friday and stay on the weekend. I must have been 25 at this point…

“One day I was at a Topshop on Oxford Street and the production company that did the show called The Apartment, we basically lived and she said we needed to talk to Alex. Angelina Jolie is available for an interview and we want her to come and do it now.

And he said, ‘Hey Alex is sick and she’s actually in Wales, but I can come in.’ So he went, still in Topshop, unknown to me, buying cheap jeans and shoes.

So I went back to the apartment and said where is he? Hours passed, and no one answered their phones, and at last he thought, I’m going to drive back to Cardiff, because I don’t know where you are, maybe I went to the pub.

Alex was shocked to find out that her boyfriend, whose name she did not name, had given the interview, and he said, “Then the production company called, and they were, we have a bit of a situation. Tomorrow morning your boyfriend is going to the premiere with Angelina Jolie and it will be really funny to come on line and live at the show and surprise him and say you know exactly what he was about to do.

‘So again, I said yes, so on live TV I’m a fan, you lied to me, where have you been?’ So, yeah, it’s no surprise, that we broke up live on TV! “

The former model had flirted with the actress and asked for her number, telling Wales Online: “They saw my interview with her and liked my style, so they asked me to come into the office. I was the only one tested on screen so I would have looked stupid if I didn’t get it.

I’ve had really nice friends and a really nice husband, but I’m thankful I needed that experience and I thought when I put myself together, I’m going to have a successful career, I’m going to work really hard and I think it was a real turning point for me.

I stopped messing around and focused and from that point on, it was a real turning point forward when the real good things started to happen. It was crazy and I can honestly laugh at it now and I mean there’s a lot to laugh about, but at the same time, I’m so grateful for it because this experience taught me so much. You taught me how volatile our industry is, and how difficult it can be.

“Because I was just a little Welsh, who was like, ‘Nobody’s going to do something bad on purpose,’ and then it was like, they really did. But she taught me a lot about love with the wrong person and how it can hurt you and hurt your self-confidence.”

I built myself back up and thought, I’m going to be an adult from now on, I’m going to do things right, I’m going to work in my career and since then, I’ve started to feel more stable.
