Jameela Jamil Told She Was Too "Old, Ethnic And Fat" To Make It In America


Jameela Jamil

British radio star Jameela Jamil has revealed that she was told she was “too old, too ethnic and too fat” to make it in America – despite subsequently landing a TV role at the first time of asking.

32 year old Jamil, a former BBC Radio 1 presenter, recently landed a spot in American sitcom ‘The Good Place’ on the strength of her first audition after relocating from Britain to Hollywood to relaunch her career Stateside. She had made the move without anything in terms of a plan or any job offers, and she revealed in a new interview with the BBC that she had been actively discouraged from doing so.

“I was literally starting again and I was actively discouraged by everyone in England,” she told BBC Radio 5 Live on Monday (May 21st). “Everyone said I was being mad, throwing away an eight-year career, and that I was too old - I was only 29 - too ethnic, and too fat to come over to Los Angeles.”

Bombshell! Vernon Kay And Reggie Yates Both Leaving Radio One


Vernon Kay Chris Moyles Nick Grimshaw Jameela Jamil

Vernon Kay and Reggie Yates have both dropped the bombshell that they will be leaving Radio One at the end of the year.

It’s all change up there at Radio One Towers, what with long-standing Breakfast Show host Chris Moyles making way for Nick Grimshaw in the coveted morning slot and now, just a few months down the line, Vernon’s weekend show will be up for grabs, and Reggie’s Chart show will now be hosted by Jameela Jamil.

According to The Sun, 38 year-old Vernon’s decision to leave his hosting duties was spurred on by a desire to spend more time with his family, now that his daughters are at school. “I’ve had an incredible nine-and-a-half years at Radio 1 that has exceeded all of my expectations, it has been a fabulous experience and I’ve loved the weekends I have spent with my listeners,” he said in a statement about his decision to leave. “However, when I was offered a contract extension I thought long and hard, but after 12 years of working weekends with CBBC, T4 and Radio 1, I felt it was the right time to leave as the girls are now both in school so weekends are more precious than ever.”
