Name shame secret of Newsnight’s Kirsty
NEWSNIGHT host Kirsty Wark says her memory is so bad she always has the name of the person she’s interviewing written on a card in front of her.
And the BBC2 star admits she needs her prompts – even if she’s quizzing Prime Minsiter David Cameron.
The Glasgow journalist, 56, said: “If I didn’t master the detail I’d be terrified. If I’m interviewing the Prime Minister, I still have his name in front of me, just in case.
“I have to, I would be scared sh*tless otherwise.”
The Celebrity Masterchef contestant also hit back at claims she chooses inappropriate skirts, saying: “I wear knee-length dresses – they can ride up.”
