Good fight Cush: UK’s not di­verse

Midweek Sport - - #LOVE ISLAND -

FILM star Cush Jumbo has claimed Bri­tain is los­ing some of its most tal­ented ac­tors be­cause of a re­fusal to em­brace di­ver­sity in tele­vi­sion and film.

The ac­tress, 31, be­lieves the UK is pro­duc­ing for­mi­da­ble tal­ent – but a fail­ure to of­fer them work means they end up be­ing of­fered roles in the United States.

The Good Fight star ac­cused drama schools of squeez­ing out bud­ding ac­tors from a di­verse or work­ing class back­ground by fail­ing to pro­vide enough sup­port.

She said: “I didn’t go to Amer­ica, I didn’t run to Amer­ica, I didn’t even ask for Amer­ica, I just took a plane there and sud­denly every­one was telling me you’re so tal­ented would you like 52 jobs.”

Lon­don-born Cush (above) ac­cused Bri­tain of “pulling the plug” on its tal­ent and claimed black Bri­tish stars were win­ning roles in the US over their Amer­i­can coun­ter­parts be­cause “we are bet­ter”.

The stunna looks set to be back on our screens soon as the host of brand new Sky Travel se­ries Lizzie Cundy’s World of Style.

Lizzie, 47, will be seen jet­ting off around the globe to a host of glam­orous lo­ca­tions. And the beauty, who was mar­ried to for­mer Chelsea player Ja­son Cundy for 18 years, looked in­cred­i­ble as she filmed an episode in the Mal­dives.

The brunette babe turned plenty of heads in this skimpy yel­low swim­suit which showed off plenty of side-boob as she chat­ted to guests and staff in the lux­u­ri­ous Sun Siyam Re­sort.

Lizzie glammed up her look with a sexy gold choker and body chain and a pair of blue mir­rored sun­glasses. OUT AND ABOUT: Lizzy on the job in Mal­dives
