NEWSREADER Jon Snow has told friends that he has become a crack addict for a documentary, despite not appearing to be followed by cameras.
Following his on-screen experiment with skunk, Snow claimed to be filming a new series where he takes crack, MDMA, peyote buttons, ayahuasca and angel dust to report on their effects.
A Channel 4 insider said: “We all admired Jon’s commitment in trying out skunk on air, but we’re starting to worry that it was a gateway documentary.
“He can’t get through an interview with Iain Duncan Smith without huffing on his little glass pipe, he angrily accused a Russian military expert of harshing his buzz and was apparently rushing hard off a pre-recorded report about PricewaterhouseCoopers.
“Though it has to be said his links are still absolutely impeccable.”
Channel 4 bosses have denied secretly filming Snow, but insiders have pointed out they said exactly the same thing when trafficking Krishnan Guru-Murthy into prostitution for a 2011 edition of Dispatches.
