EPHRAIM HARDCASTLE: Anthony Scaramucci teases Emily Maitlis

EPHRAIM HARDCASTLE: Trump’s ex-comms chief Anthony Scaramucci teases Emily Maitlis he lost his job because of her… five years after THAT flirtatious encounter

Five years after her flirtatious encounter with Donald Trump’s communications chief Anthony Scaramucci – he was dismissed after ten days – Emily Maitlis is reunited with ‘The Mooch’, who playfully asks on her podcast: ‘Am I able to tell people I lost my job because of you?

Later he blamed his bosses for urging him not to ‘go overboard’.

Asked by The Stage to describe the worst moment in his theatrical career, Sir Alan Ayckbourn recalls springing from a taxi on the opening night of Absurd Person Singular at London’s Criterion Theatre in front of photographers. ‘I heard my trousers splitting down the back seam, and jumped straight back into the taxi to go home and change.’
