DivaAlexa refuses to f ly home for work
HER American TV show It’s On With Alexa Chung may have flopped but that hasn’t stopped the presenter from behaving like a diva. Producers of Channel 4’s T4, which made Alexa, left, a household name, are desperate to reinstate her. But the 26-year-old, who is now so respected in the fashion industry she has a Mulberry handbag named after her, has refused to appear unless they film in the States.
‘The cast and crew have been begging Alexa to come back but she sees it as a step down the ladder,’ says an insider. ‘Alexa agreed to host another series of Frock Me for T4 but she’s insisted on filming it in New York.
‘Everyone thinks she’s got too big for her boots. She shouldn’t turn her nose up at an opportunity to return.’
A spokesperson for Alexa says: ‘ There are no plans to come back to the UK – it makes sense for everyone’s schedules for her to be in the US.’
