    She’s been doing a bit at CNN. I’m not too sure if she’s still there at the mo.

    I have to agree I do like her, she would’ve been good on Sunrise.

    Well, she was on free-lance work at Sky and probably got a better offer at CNN. As I recall she was presenting World News Europe 5 nights a week. Finoula (sp?) Sweeney was on another assignment.

    Alison Bell is currently a freelance TV and Radio news presenter – appearing predominantly on CNN International and Sky News – as well as popping-up occasionally on LBC 97.3FM.

    Until June 2002, she was a presenter for the ITN News Channel, from its launch in August 2000. She joined ITN in January 1999 as a presenter on News Direct, the London-wide all-news radio station.

    Alison’s broadcasting career took off in the New Zealand capital of Wellington, where she was a top rating breakfast radio personality. She also hosted her own mid-morning show on the city’s Number One commercial radio station.

    Although born in Yorkshire, Alison grew up in New Zealand and now lives in London.

    SNA should try to get her to front their channel, although I doubt she’d except a demotion.

    I really think SNA should become “Sky News Australasia” and broadcast LIVE from Sydney to NZ, Fiji, New Caledonia, PNG, East Timor and Singapore. Of course keep its primary role as Australia’s news channel but expand its presence as they’re the key nations in the region.

    Just saw on Sky News Today that Alison Bell has been arrested on drug charges with James Hewitt.

    If its true, who would have thought?

    I’m stunned Seriously.

    I can’t believe this. She must’ve been duped by this Hewitt character. I hope. Or just falsely accused. Somehow.

    She hasn’t been on CNN recently, has she?

    Ah, now I realise who this Hewitt character is… I’m not British, so I’m not familiar with your “celebs” as much. What the hell was she doing with this sorry person anyway? :angry:

    Martin Brunt was just on, about ten minutes ago. They’re still in the “slammer”. They’re at the police station in Notting Hill. There was some moron running around behind Martin shouting W***** and making funny signs above his head

    They were arrested becuase one of them, Alison it appears, as she was the one arrested for supplying the coke, speed, heroin or whatever it was, went outside the bar momentarily, only to go back in. Somebody called the police and a bit later they were both “prisoners”…

    Kristian, how can u say this?

    None of us here know James or Alison personally, she may be a drug user for years likewise James might have been, I’m not saying they have been or are they now, you must bear in mind that they are BOTH innocent until proven otherwise, it is not for you or I to judge them, that is the job of the legal system.

    I have watched a few things about James and I for one think he has had a raw deal, it takes two to tango and i’m fed up with everyone coming down on Diana’s side all the time, lets not forget is was this so called Princess who said Andrew Morton’s book was full of lies and at the end of the day is was coloro:redHERcolorc that was meeting him and giving him all this info, despite the fact she denied it to her dieing day..

    Keep in mind that that post was written in “the heat of the moment”. It was quite a shock to find that someone I admire like Alison might possibly be on drugs.

    And about Hewitt. I really don’t have any sort of feel for what he’s like, as I really haven’t followed all the Diana stuff. Probably because I was barely in my teens when she passed away, and I’m still not British either. I do think it was made quite clear, when they reviewed the papers just about twenty minutes ago, what people thought of him, so my initial assessment as to his character probably wasn’t all too harsh. I just hope that Alison’s colleagues don’t feel about her the same way the British public seems to feel about Hewitt.

    You’re right, it’s not my job to judge them. I don’t think I did, at all. I can tell you how I feel about her choice of friends, in this case, though, and it doesn’t seem too smart, does it?

    Of course I hope this is all a big lie. I hope that Alison will soon be back on CNN and all this will be forgotten because someone at the Cactus Blue bar saw a celeb he/she didn’t like with another semi-celeb and then decided to call the bobbies on them. I don’t know if they’d be arrested if they didn’t have any drugs on them. At the end of the day I hope this is all some big mistake.

    Alison Bell is about to hit both our 6pm bulletins in New Zealand as a former Wellington radio host. This from the NewstalkZB radio station:

    Friday, 23 July 2004

    Former NZ Broadcaster released on bail

    The former New Zealand broadcaster arrested in London on suspicion of supplying class A drugs has been released on bail.

    TV presenter Alison Bell was arrested with notorious royal “love rat” James Hewitt.

    He was arrested on suspicion of possession.

    Both have been ordered to report back to police in September and no charges have been laid.

    Bell is best remembered in New Zealand as the woman who cheated on Prince Edward.

    The pair met in the mid-1980s when he was teaching at Wanganui Collegiate and she was working at a local radio station.

    The relationship reportedly ended when she was found to have been two-timing him.

    Former kiwi workmates say Bell was very ambitious.

    They are not surprised she was arrested in the company of Princess Diana’s former lover.
