TV presenter Alexa Chung has said her bid for career success in the US is struggling because she can’t make any friends.

The 25-year-old Brit has revealed she is not making friends with the American people on her show It’s On with Alexa Chung.

She said: “I don’t really have any friends in America… I just don’t tolerate douche bags.”

Alexa, who used to present UK show T4, also hit out at the people working around her on the set of her new show.

She said: “To be honest, it’s usually the (talent) publicists who are the d***heads. They get paid to do the dirty work.”

Talking about her paranoia that the US public won’t get on with her, she added to V magazine: “I’m worried my guests won’t like me.”

Alexa also said that she is still trying to get used to her apartment in the States, she said: “I think my apartment is too shiny. I just found out that [Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder] used to live in it.

“And the other day when I was in the laundry room, I heard that Michael Douglas’s son is looking to move into the building.”
