Just put Corrie on and Gail is wearing the exact same jumper as me 😱 I thought I had a reasonable fashion sensr . so would I be unreasonable to burn it?

Sell it on eBay 'As seen on Corrie'?

Jane in eastenders ruined a few tops for me....

Here is offending jumper. It looks pink but it is red really

I once had a cardigan which I thought was lovely. Rita was wearing it next time I saw Corras! The shame!

Nope - I would burn it, I had a top that I had worn a few times when I saw heather on eastenders had the same one ... As soon As the duff duffs started, that top went straight in the bin.

Right, thank you mumsnetters it has been decided. To be ecologically friendly I have decided its to be donated to the charity shop in the morning. Its bad enough that I will turn 40 this year, without starting to dress like bloody Gail Platt .

Turning 40 is a good thing. Most liberating.

Thank you Buzzardbird, I have mixed feelings on the subject. I don't mind too much but I really still feel about 21 delusional I know.😊

I bought a dress last year (when I was a young whippersnapper at 40) that I then saw Alison Steadman wearing blush

It went into a charity bag.

I have nothing against the lovely Alison Steadman, but she was playing a retiree in the programme I saw her in!

Many years ago, they had our wallpaper upstairs in the Queen Vic.

I think you should keep it but maybe consider a mushroom haircut too. It could be the making of you?

I really questioned myself when I saw Sally Webster wearing my mac a few years ago. It lost its appeal.

calamityjam Wed 23-Mar-16 21:34:50

Bochit, I've been thinking of getting my hair cut recently. Maybe I should just think fuck it and go all out Gail Platy for my 40th?πŸ˜€

calamityjam Wed 23-Mar-16 21:35:28

Platt lol

Botchit Wed 23-Mar-16 21:42:37

Well I think you should. 40's, new chapter, new you. Do you have a thang for Les Dennis? If not you could watch re runs of family fortunes in your jumper, with your new hair and whimper at him like platy does.

Thats a pretty fugly jumper (sorry) but a better choice would be to stop watching shitty soaps altogether.
