The first date scenario is one we all know too well - but what happens when it's filmed for a TV documentary series? Writer Ella Downing gives her view of Channel 4's First Dates, which puts all the first date awkwardness right on your television screen.Written by Ella Downing on 30th March 2015
The Chelsea Low Down!
For those of you who have been too focused on revision and exams to watch the brilliant Made in Chelsea, new MIC blogger Laura Megatli give you a quick recap of the ‘totes amaze’ action so far
So far the most recent Made in Chelsea series has been anything and everything but bland. Viewers have seen (take a big breath); a ‘horse’ threaten to slap Millie, Spencer hopelessly in love with Caggie, before she promptly left, Cheska liken herself to Mrs Marple, Ollie’s awkward advance, Spencer hopelessly in lust with Kimberley, Binky’s bad ass badminton skills, Rosie do her trademark squinty eye, a boob reduction party complete with breast shaped jelly, Jamie in a kilt (swoon), Spencer hopelessly in love with Louise (Can you see a pattern yet), Millie’s perpetual pout and more annoyingly long pauses that would make The Hills jealous.
Perhaps the highlight though has been the off air shenanigans. Gabriella’s zit commercial really succeeds in showcasing her totes amaze acting skills. The girl should get an Oscar for her ‘sad face’ when reliving the horror of her tragic pimply past. After Louise and Spencer did the nasty in Dubai, fans flocked to their Facebook and twitter accounts to slam Louise. The poor pint sized Edinburgh student received death threats from some die-hard-Jamie fans. While I love Jamie as much as the next girl (possibly a little bit too much) and did admittedly shout at the telly as Louise got in the car, death threats are defo out of order, after all she only slept with the guy, and could you resist Spenser? Perhaps the juiciest off air/online gossip has to be the twitter class war between Professor Green (Millie’s not so pouty boyfriend) and Victoria, with brutal language such as ‘spade’ and ‘dictionary’ being hurled from respective parties.
Last week we saw Kimberley’s good girl act crumble when Binky and Cheska dug up her past. Despite Kimberley’s cracking facial expression (we all knew that the smile couldn’t last) in response to seeing her ex on Cheska’s arm, it came second in the ‘Hilarious Reaction to Crappy News on MiC’ award to Gabriella and her face in the first series when she found out Ollie was bisexual. And just as viewers got a little bit excited over the prospect of a possible Binky and Jamie romance it was slashed…just like Jamie’s heart. I still hold hope that Jamie will find love before this series ends. If he doesn’t he can always come and find me!
Tune in tonight to see more Made in Chelsea madness!
