Part One:- Alice and David Chaplin and their children move to a gated private housing estate where status is all-important. Queen Bee Ffion, who addresses her daughter in French even in shops, sets the snobby standard and Alice is alarmed at the parents'competition to get their daughters into the fashionable Chelsea college rather than the despised local comprehensive school. Sarah McDonald even gets a job as school secretary to be close to the action. The fact remains that Alice's daughter Molly is no academic, scoring a measly 38 per cent in her dummy run entry exam for Chelsea. Alice panics, foreseeing a life of prostitution for her daughter and decides she will impersonate Molly and take the exam herself. She narrowly avoids Ffion in a store where she is trying on teenage dresses but David reckons she still looks like a 30-year-old pretending to look 11 and so she goes for a dowdy, anonymous look when she enters the hall to sit the exam. Even Ffion fails to recognize her. ... Written by don @ minifie-1

What a crock
13 June 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Seriously, is this British TV? I've almost never seen anything as stupid. Well I must admit I did laugh once, but it got lost in the huge amount of silly dribble that this show was. Who on earth would believe her to be 11 years old? She looks every bit 30+ no matter what clothes she puts on. Trying to pull one over on the audience just don't sit well. The only endearing factor about this show is the poor husband, having to deal with such a nervous, compulsive, stupid wife. And He's really doing his best. But no one can live with a partner like that forever. I was just hoping for a quick divorce in the 1st episode and get it over with. Pjukable.
