I love this show; I'm actually writing this post during the ad breaks! It's funny, emotional at times and the main character Rae Earl (Sharon Rooney) is absolutely brilliant. The show covers real life teenage issues such as mental health and girls' body image issues but with a little humour along the way. It was based on the novel My Fat Mad Teenage Diary by Rae Earl.
Although the show is set in the 90s all the characters in Rae's friendship group are so relatable. Anyone can relate to the highs and lows of being a teenager, whether you are or were one. If you watched the one today I found it so funny to see Rae's over exaggerated reaction in her head when Chloe told her she kissed Finn.
Today was the last episode and I'm glad that E4 has announced the second series they haven't said when it will be shown but I hope it's very soon. It's probably the highlight of my Mondays.
