Popular TV personality and actor Ben Camille has refused to rule out getting involved in politics in the future.
“I’d never say ‘never’, even though I don’t like how personal it gets at times,” he told MaltaToday in an interview. “I love the idea of serving for the greater cause of making a difference.”
“I would like to do something that will make a difference. Even if just on a local scale, I’d like to make a difference, for the better, of course.”
The route from entertainment to politics is not exactly well-trodden in Malta, but a few people have taken this path in recent years. Former Eurovision singer Claudette Buttigieg is now a Nationalist MP, while popular dancer Felix Busuttil will contest next year’s MEP elections with the Labour Party.
Ben’s statement comes a day after he was confirmed as the host of X Factor Malta – a new show based on the popular British series, whose winner will represent the country at next year’s Eurovision.
