Jodie Marsh enjoyed 'flirty banter' with drug dealer
Jodie Marsh enjoyed "flirty banter" with a drug dealer on her new show.
The 36-year-old model-turned TV presenter used her boobs to her advantage in an attempt to get good answers from a dealer on her latest show, 'Jodie Marsh on ... Drugs', and admitted her asset-focused technique was a lot more effective than if she'd conducted a "serious and heavy" interview.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "One of the drug dealers I talk to in tonight's (25.03.15) show we were kind of having a bit of flirty banter. There was almost flirting going on.
"But I think that was cool and that was needed in that situation, otherwise it could've got too serious and too heavy.
"I wanted answers out of him and I realised very early on that the only way I was going to get answers was if he really, really liked me.
"So I used my goods, what I have as a woman. I flirted with him to get the answers I wanted and it worked.
"I'd rather flirt with someone to get answers than be horrible to them."
While she spoke to several drug dealers and gangsters in potentially-dangerous situations as she shot the show, Jodie admits she didn't ever fear for her safety and actually quite enjoyed the aspect of danger that came with filming the programme.
She added: "There were measures taken for our safety but I never really got scared about it. I'm a bit of a weirdo like that because I got excited about it.
"I got blindfolded in the car to meet a gangster and I was like, 'Woo hoo!' I loved it.
"It's always hard trying to get people to talk on camera. I don't know if it's me and they know I'm a nice person and I'm not going to mug them off because I'm not sarcastic or horrible, or just because I'm a glamour girl and they like my boobs?
"Either way they're quite excited about being interviewed by me."
'Jodie Marsh On... Drugs' airs Wednesday at 10pm on TLC.
