My Mad Fat Diary

Series 1 - Episode 2

Radio Times
Review by:
Claire Webb

Rae, the overweight teen with an unfortunate penchant for self-harming, believes all her dreams have come true when Archie asks her out on a date. Alas, it goes horribly, inevitably awry and ends in an agonising shower scene that made this viewer yelp. But the “blob with a gob” – which is how Rae describes herself to her psychiatrist – isn’t one to wallow in self-loathing for long…

This is as uplifting as it is moving, although the banter and gimmicks won’t be to everybody’s taste.

About this programme

2/6. Rae is determined to catch up with the rest of the gang in terms of her sexual experiences, but is worried her weight will prevent her getting a boyfriend. However, things look up when one of the boys asks her on a date. Comedy based on the diaries of 16-year-old Rae Earl, starring Sharon Rooney.
