Hotel Inspector Alex Polizzi is back on our television screens this week presenting a new series about Italy. According to the Daily Mail’s Ephraim Hardcastle, she was filmed in St Mark’s Square, Venice, watching a cruise ship arrive. As it passes, she turns to the camera and remarks: “There is a cruise ship which is about to disgorge 5,000 people with their packed lunches and bottles of water onto the streets [sic] of Venice … in five hours time this street will be a river of humanity. Very unpleasant!”
Now we know that it’s not just the towel animals she can’t stand, but the cruise passengers themselves. Or is she just prepared to say anything controversial if the money is right?
