James English is the host of mega podcast Anything Goes, but in a previous life he was a professional footballer, a model and an addict.
In this episode former boxing world champ Tony Bellew sits down for a frank and honest chat with James about how much of his life has been shaped by anger - from a tough childhood to a spell in prison, through drink, drugs and a gambling addiction. He also reveals what his sister and a pair of hair tongs had to do with his angriest moment and how an ex-girlfriend changed his life forever by leaving a certain book on the bed and walking out the door.
