Ok, so hopefully not all secondary school kids in the UK are like this. Otherwise we have as much hope of getting a decent prime minister as Joey Essex knowing how many sides a square has.
Some Girls is a comedy on BBC 3 about four girls in secondary school who just do not give a hoo haaa about much really. Viva wants to go to university to study psychology, which at first sounded great. But then you learn that she hangs out with these other three girls: Amber who is no brighter than a brick , mini-tomboy Holli whose boldily functions are anything but ladylike and Saz who seems nice until you realise that everything she says is dripping with disdain.
In this week’s episode, Amber wants to get back with her boyfriend who actually matches her personality. Downside is that he gets around too much, is very controlling and treats her like the nearby streetbin. Meanwhile, Hollie has been shaving some poor boy’s head using superglue and we learn that posh, popular girls can’t do sport. One thing great about this show is that it is realistic and you can only really depend on the British for that. Take Glee, for example. On what planet would the geeks, jocks and pretties be in the same room together for anything?
This is extremely funny to watch but could we imagine some of the girls here in the real world? The thought is so scary that I am not going to dwell on this any further. All that’s left to say is happy viewing!
This year’s ‘I’m a Celebrity..Get me out of here’ UK finally ended a few seconds ago. While we enjoyed Helen Flanagan’s screaming, Ashley Roberts’s dancing and Eric Bristow‘s no-nonsense attitude, have we learnt anything useful?
1. Even pretty girls feel insecure sometimes – It was hard to believe why Helen Flanagan felt so insecure about her looks. She really did not need the push-up bra, the self-tan or attitude. But when one looks at her behviour, you can understand why we have problems of anorexia, bulimia and self-harm in the UK. And yes, it was a little melodramatic that the Daily Star called her ‘The Most Hated Celebrity in the Jungle’. She is learning though… she didn’t ask her mum to put the lights out as she realised she could have done it herself. Strange…I thought most of us knew that?
2. Flashing your buttocks might not get you anywhere but ‘pulling a dirty’ might – Funny how David Haye had to strip down to nothing and still came third. All Ashley had to do was say that she wanted to ‘pull a dirty’. Although the fact that she was a Pussycat Doll might have also worked in her favour even if she is no Nicole Scherzinger….
3. Even posh totties get the same jungle treatment – Poor Hugo Taylor! Was I the only one who was shouting at the TV screen when people were making fun of him because he was rich? Weirdly enough, even with a supposed silver spoon up his y’know, he was the nicest one in there. He took all the stick and gracefully let it slide… except in the case of Rosemary. Although when anyone calls you a petulant little child, it is time to act don’t you think? The crying never helped though but everyone loves a Mr. Sensitive.. don’t they?
