Speaking about her career transition, she said: ‘At first I thought no one liked me on TV because there was a lot of negativity online, but now I’m in a place where that kind of of comments is only like 10-20% and I have quite an audience that loves me and is behind me

‘I don’t want to let this small percentage stop me or demean me when I’ve worked so hard to be where I am’

Alex said she used to go to recording studios after training to gain experience and had a degree in sports writing and broadcasting, adding that she «  prepared a lot for each show  »
