Disfigured newsreader for Five
A charity chief with a facial
disfigurement will read the news on
Channel Five for a week in an attempt
to try to break down prejudice.
James Partridge, who is chief executive
of Changing Faces, suffered severe
burns in a car accident aged 18.
He will front the Five News lunchtime
bulletin for a week from Monday.
A YouGov survey for the station found
44% of respondents thought it would be
a good idea for people with facial
disfigurement to present TV shows.
