CELEB LIFE MANTRA TV PRE­SEN­TER BEN FOGLE, 43, RE­VEALS HIS IN­NER­MOST SE­CRETS

Closer (UK) - - Wellbeing -

MY BIG­GEST FEAR IS…

Fail­ure. My child­hood was full of it. I failed my ex­ams. I failed at sport. It had a huge im­pact on my con­fi­dence. But I’ve since come to learn that with­out fail­ure we’ll never un­der­stand the sweet­ness of suc­cess.

THE BEST PIECE OF AD­VICE I’VE HAD IS…

To be true to who I am. I hated stand­ing out and be­ing dif­fer­ent and it wasn’t un­til I was in my 40s that I was able to say “this is me.”

I WISH…

I had a thicker skin, as I’m too sen­si­tive. Some­times I wish I had more of a Piers Mor­gan skin – he must have a rhino hide un­der his suit!

I LOATHE…

In­jus­tice. I live near the Gren­fell Tower in Lon­don [where at least 80 peo­ple were killed in a fire] and my com­mu­nity has been de­stroyed. My eyes tear ev­ery time I see that tower. We failed them.
