’Fortunately, I have worked for some of the biggest personalities
in the business.
’The biggest was David Emin at News Group Newspapers. His patience span
was about 15 seconds and we had many legendary ’debates’. I can still
picture his face when Jane Veale and I awarded ourselves an hour off to
meet Take That when they visited The Sun.
’He conned me into appearing in Deidre’s Photo Casebook in The Sun,
posing in bed with a total stranger. He also had a sense of humour
failure when I stuck a picture of Idi ’Emin’ on his ID card.
’I had to take a year off after my two years with David. But on
reflection, it was an education and we are still friends.’
