Ashley, a 15-year-old Runcorn schoolgirl is 'discovered' by a model agency scout whilst in a café. As she shoots to fame her family is disrupted and her life, and that of her family, is turned upside down.
This comedy show is great and breaks away from the "norm". The first season is a bit quirky, but once you get to know the characters, they really surprise me how well they somehow mesh together. I think that the first couple seasons were spent developing the characters and the direction their stories will take. Season 4 is fantastic and everything seems to come together because while almost every episode poses some random challenge or oddity, the simple back story still develops and has really progressed in this season. There seems to be a trend of the negative reviewers of this show in that they are all over- analyzing and taking things way too seriously for a comedy. It's supposed to be funny, not intriguing and mystifying. "You gotta think with your balls" as Don would say.
