Jeremy Vine is best known the UK’s lunchtime radio legend.
However when he’s not interviewing politicians and personalities, unearthing local stories of national importance, or talking to someone from an owl sanctuary in Stevenage, he has another vital role to perform. Whenever he pauses to play a record, he knows he has three minutes to offer off-air advice to the world’s great and good – all of whom have asked him for help in their moment of need. God knows Donald Trump has problems. Which is why they turn, in private, to Jeremy.
