‘Every interview I do, I still feel like an imposter’

June Sarpong has interviewed royalty, world leaders and A-list celebrities, but even after more than two decades on our screens, she still has to work hard to silence her own inner critic. “Every interview I do, I still feel like a fraud. It doesn’t matter who it is,” she tells the Telegraph’s women’s editor Claire Cohen on the latest episode of her podcast, Imposters. “It’s not that I don’t think I can do whatever it is, it’s that I don’t think I deserve it.”

Sarpong, who received an OBE on the 2020 New Year’s Honors list, believes women tend to lack confidence: “I’m so impressed at how entitlement they, especially men, have. I would like that.”

She tells Claire Cohen how getting older has only made her imposter syndrome worse, and shares with listeners her Beyoncé-inspired secret to easing their self-doubt.
