The Fake Sheikh, Fake Guest, and the Fake Coins – WideShut Webcast (w/ Jonathan Royle)

Fake Sheikh, Jonathan Royle

From stitching up singer Tulisa to staging a kidnapping threat on the Beckhams, the ‘fake sheikh’ Mazher Mahmood ruined dozens of lives while working as an undercover journalist in the Murdoch empire. Today WideShut UK talks to one of his victims, Alex Smith (aka stage hypnotist Jonathan Royle). He discusses growing up in the circus, trolling the media in the 90s by appearing multiple times on daytime TV during the ‘fake guest scandal’, and how his penchant for exploiting the press brought him face to face with the Fake Sheikh. This is the story of what happened when the fake sheikh met the fake guest, with the fake coins.
