Olly Alexander: ‘I would always encourage people to be honest, because you get one shot at this. It saved me, the fact that I got to be honest’

Olly Alexander knew what he was going to do: he was going to watch the programme on his own, with nobody around him.

Ordinarily, when a new TV series was set to emerge, there would be a special preview screening for cast and crew. But because of Covid-19, Alexander, the lead in the Channel 4 drama It’s A Sin, sat down to watch the series solo, in his apartment in a London under lockdown.
