Reggie Yates, DJ, writer and presenter

Actor, DJ, presenter, photographer, author, acclaimed documentary-maker and now a feature film director – there aren’t many things that Reggie Yates can’t do! In this episode, he talks to Yasmin and Alison about his career to date and how important it has been to stick to his guns when it comes to authenticity and speaking in his own voice. He reminisces about the West African food he grew up with, touches on the great plantain pronunciation debate and reveals some interesting ideas about how to eat crisps and chocolate (at the same time). Reggie also chats about his brilliant new film, Pirates, launched on 26 November, which celebrates UK Garage culture at the turn of the Millennium.
