The sad thing is these paid for caricatures will have some thinking "this is how I should behave too, they're my age and they've got on TV being themselves, maybe so can I!" not realising this is all set up and managed accordingly. It's bad enough the stereotype exists, but to advertise it as something worthy of television time and national recognition will just cause some less enlightened folks to get the wrong idea about how to get famous. I can see this potential being a contender against TOWIE as it looks to be just as trashy but without so many obvious camera set ups.

Actually, Holly lives in Middlesborough. Not all of the cast are from Newcastle, but from different parts of the North East. Greg's accent isn't that blunt/harsh, but a tiny bit well spoken in places. Gary's accent is very blunt and is very close to ours. On the video, Holly sounded a bit like a Yorkshire women when saying the word 'flirty'. Jay's accent is very blunt as well. So is Sophie's from that video.
yep charlottes actually a mackem

Anyone notice the exact same thing happened on the first episode of Jersey Shore? Snooki got drunk and made a fool out of herself, just like that Sophie girl just has

Like in Jersey Shore, that's not their actual job, it's what they have to do to get money for the summer... just like when people go out to Malia, Ibiza, Magaluf, etc...

My eyes hurt from seeing so much cellulite squeezed into knickers at least 6 sizes too small, yuck.

That was almost a carbon copy of the first episode of jersey shore, I still enjoyed it though.

Greg was my favourite he seemed really sweet
