I nominate Jenny Lee from Call The Midwife.

"I could've been an actress. I could've been a model. I could've been a concert pianist..!"

It's lucky they rode bicycles, she wouldn't have fit her massive head into a car.

Anyone else?

Emma. Ugh. Thank god social media was not dominant then, I think that's all we can say.

Carrie Bradshaw - every conversation she ever had she managed to turn back onto herself.

Mr Darcy.

Claire in Outlander. Why doesn't she just accept that life is different in the 18th century and that she might have to adapt to their way of life instead of telling them how wrong they are?

Darrell Rivers from Mallory Towers, along with her friends Sally and Alicia.

Nancy Drew.

I take Lorelei Gilmore and add Rory Gilmore. Like mother like daughter. Both of them thought the whole world should revolve around them and what was best for them! If shit was not going their way, they chucked a hissy fit and played the poor me card. Poor bloody Luke!

I realise I was once very overinvested in that show......

toffee1000 Wed 21-Mar-18 20:51:49

bertsdinner oh yes. Sally was the least bad of that bunch. Alicia was by far the worst. Her pulling out of the panto in book five due to personal beef with Moira was not on IMO. I would’ve been furious if I was Darrell. Learn to ignore your petty dislike and carry on for everyone else’s sake.

Another vote for Lorelei Gilmore. I genuinely have never hated a character more. (Still watched the series obsessively.... 😁)

Megsmcgoo Wed 21-Mar-18 20:56:15

Lorelai and Robin from how I met your mother

Jenny Lee definitely as she was so perfect

Imogen Willis from Neighbours

Dawson. What a nob.

EnidButton Wed 21-Mar-18 21:03:58

All of Jane Austen's main female protagonists.

EnidButton Wed 21-Mar-18 21:05:10

God I went out with a Dawson. Total complete knob. 🙄 He had a guitar he carried with him. 16 year old me, have a word with yourself.

Lisa Simpson

Veronica from Riverdale. Dial it back a notch, girl.
