New series starts tonight (2nd June) on ITV at 9pm.

Looking forward to this.

All the girls are Aussies this year apparently

Can the Aussies be as bad as they are here?

ThePhantomPlopper Tue 02-Jun-09 21:04:03

I love this show!

Can't wait, my DH raised an eyebrow because I wanted to tape it however as he is currently watching 2 fast 2 furious I don't think he is in a position to judge my TV taste.

this should be fun

gegs73 Tue 02-Jun-09 21:10:57

My husband loves it too, though he always denies it!

ZebsRoomofHerOwn Tue 02-Jun-09 21:12:01

I'm loving this already.

Dumbledoresgirl Tue 02-Jun-09 21:15:11

LOL I love this programme. I am not even a ladette and never have been, but even I feel like rebelling when I hear those teachers expressing their shock! grin

ZebsRoomofHerOwn Tue 02-Jun-09 21:22:16

Po-faced antedelluvian old bats. grin

I'm loving Nigel Havers voiceover though. It sounds like he's trying really hard not to burst out laughing.

my dh always says he hates reality telly but this is one programme he loves. It's great when they all fall apart and get shitfaced at cocktail parties

I love this programme.

I nearly wet myself when that one girl said she wanted to be like one of the teachers, and the teacher believed her too.

Felt sorry for Sky because they did seem to be on her case far more than anyone else and I thought calling her scum was really out of order.

lilolilmanchester Tue 02-Jun-09 22:55:53

I love it too. Any early bets as to winner? I reckon Sky if she gets her act together or the construction worker.

I think the Aussie girls are much more 'refined' and intelligent than their UK counterparts in other series. The bullying tactics don't work so well when the girls are not quite so, erm, inarticulate and crass. Those girls look genuinely upset, rather than bolshy.

I am fascinated by the posh boys they import for the parties. Hilarious when the girl said they were all 'inbred toffs' to the outrage of the 'teacher'. Hit the nail right on the head there.

Bet there is an engagement between toff and girl by end of this series.

I had tears streaming down my face watching this. I laughed so much with the stripper girl telling that blonde bint that she wanted to be like her , this shortly after putting cd's on her nipples! And like nervousnutty said, the fact that she believed her, and the other two just looked at her like hmm pmsl
I do like Rosemary Schrager though, she seems quite cool, i think she would be a great Nan. grin

5Foot5 Wed 03-Jun-09 13:09:15

I like Rosemary Shrager too. She is often quite motherly to the ladettes.

But I hate, hate, hate that awful snob Liz Brewer ( the blonde one who teaches etiquette)

MrsJamin Wed 03-Jun-09 14:09:41

I'm so glad I'm not alone in loving this programme! It's such a battle every week between the girls and the 'teachers'. I think Sky could change a lot throughout the series. I was actually shocked (just like this shock!) at the girl who went who mooned at the teachers, though, just horrific how she had no respect for them at all. Just as well she went as she had no sign of wanting to change.

ZebsRoomofHerOwn Wed 03-Jun-09 17:31:56

I think Margot's got it right. These seemed to me just yer basic down to earth Aussie birds (ok, taken to extremes), but they're not brain dead morons. They're a feisty bunch who can actually think a bit.

'sexual incontinence'. Fabulous grin

"decorated fuckdolls for the pleasure of men"

BRILLIANT!

All men are NOT the same. The aussie girl so has a point.

Having a posh accent does give them the ok to be a lech who is old enough to be the aussie girls father.

"decorated fuckdolls for the pleasure of men"

has to be a contender for quote of the yeargrin
