TV’s Alex Polizzi is well known for pulling no punches on her shows about improving floundering businesses and the 43-year-old is now looking at ways to make herself look better on screen as she turns her attention to the restaurant industry for her new show.
The Fixer, as she’s known on the BBC, says that watching herself on television has made her ‘realise the passage of time’ and wonder if she could benefit from some Botox injections. She said ‘I’m 43 and I can’t believe how much I’ve aged in the past few years – probably since I had my son. You think ‘Maybe I should start thinking about Botox.’
The famous hotelier added ‘In a very boring, female way, I’m quite obsessed with how I look but I’m under no illusions. I’m not on telly because I’m pretty; I’m on telly because I know what I’m talking about.’
Discussing her own viewing habits, Alex says she is not a fan of BBC hit show The Apprentice; she calls it ‘repulsive’ and ‘a parody’ because of the contestants who apply to take part in the programme. She also added ‘I’m amazed at how violent TV is these days so I love that half-hour of children’s TV I watch every day.’
