Alice Levine says she’s ‘happy with her level of anonymity’ and would rather go to the pub than a swanky showbiz party.  

The presenter co-hosts award-winning comedy podcast My Dad Wrote A Porno and says she finds A-list events ‘intimidating’ as an introvert, and much prefers a quiet evening at her local.   

Speaking to the Stella Magazine, the 35-year-old said that she’s more than content with her level of fame, admitting that she rarely gets recognised by fans in public.

If I go out, I’m a pub person, not a club person. I’m an introvert and I’m sure showbiz parties are fun but I find them so intimidating’, she said. 

‘I’m very happy with my level of anonymity as it is right now. I don’t get recognised a lot and when I am, they can’t seem to recall where they know me from. ‘  

Alice’s career began hosting Celebrity Bites for MTV, soon moving on to hosting Big Brother’s Bit on the Side among a host of other reality shows before bagging a job as a DJ for Radio One.  

The presenter’s latest project is Channel 4 documentary series Sex Actually which was was produced by Louis Theroux and sees Alice travel the country exploring sexual relationships.

She admitted to the publication that she’s been a longtime fan of Theroux and still ‘finds it weird’ when she sees his name pop up on her phone. 

The series sees Alice meet couple Kayla, 21,  and Jack, 27, from Newcastle, who started filming themselves having sex for money when the couple were both furloughed during the pandemic.

The presenter admitted that she had no idea how to prepare for watching two strangers have sex in front of her for the first time – unsure of whether to watch the couple directly or look away. 

In an interview with the Sun, she said: ‘I don’t know how you prepare yourself to be sat in somebody’s bedroom while they have sex. There’s no handbook for that.’ 

Elsewhere in the documentary, partners Cole and Callum, from Dundee, both in their 20s, told how they can make as much £170,000 a year together by selling their pornography and regularly win awards for their content. 

In a quiet town in Wales, Alice meets married couple Jocelyn, 44, and Hywel, 52, who routinely partake in bondage and domination.

The pair may seem quiet on the surface, but often spend evenings in their sex dungeon decorated with stocks, chain and stone walls. 

Jocelyn is the submissive in the sexual relationship and explained to Alive how she enjoys being chained up and gagged – but wears a bike helmet to protect herself from banging her head on the low roof. 

She meets up with London-based dominatrix Madam Storm and her two ‘subs’ – Lou and Kurby – to learn the art of domination. 

‘I learned to do some flogging’, she said. ‘I learned to do some spanking and whipping. Lou and Kurby are by her side when she needs to do demos. Whether it’s dripping hot wax on somebody, or whatever, they are at her beck and call.’ 

She says that while it may appear violent on the surface, the dominatrix was regularly checking in with her submissive partners to make sure they were safe and happy.
