The title makes me wince a little,but it's on Channel 4 now.

I'm trying to watch it. I have a real phobia of anything to do with bones though so I'm feeling a bit dizzy watching it, which then makes me feel a bit of a pillock when you think of what this girl has ahead of her.

And I hate the title.

I know what it's about but I can't. I would be sobbing.

It is heartbreaking.

Don't think it would make you sob, she's a beautiful, articulate girl and a real tough cookie. Really inspiring but HATE the title of the show. Why do they always have to have such sensationalist bloody titles. She's a person not a mannequin!

I'm watching. The title is a bit crass but I suppose I can see why then chose it. She's a beautiful looking girl, I can't help thinking that her determination could be channelled into something really worthwhile.

She's a beautiful girl with a lovely family.

She has a determination to work in fashion, that's as legitimate an ambition as any other. Just because she's disabled doesn't mean she should focus her energy on 'worthy' causes.

I think she's fab, so is her Granny!

Yes. What an amazing attitude. When she told her Mum not to cry, because she doesn't cry."!! I hope she does get a job in fashion. She is certainly naturally brilliant at putting a look together and seems a natural. The thing in life is to find something you love and get someone to pay you to do it. In Louise's case, that is fashion. I think it is a worthwhile career.

Fair do's, I'm not knocking a career in fashion, nor do I think her ambitions should be somehow 'worthy', just that - how amazing is her determination! She could achieve anything!
