If you like your model shows slick and glossy, you should probably switch back over to Living. If, on the other hand, you very much enjoyed the documentary Zoolander – more for the characters than the glamour – then ITV2's Models, Misfits & Mayhem could be for you.
The aspiring clothes-horses at the London School of Modelling are only around for an episode each of this five-parter, so there isn't much time to get invested in their dilemmas over whether to go nude, or how they should relate to the cupcakes they're co-starring in a shoot with. But that's ok.
It's the staff and "professionals" at the school who really deliver the goods (plus there's the dead-pan narration by Trigger off of Only Fools and Horses).
Things go into overdrive in this first episode with the arrival of "avant garde fashion designer" Anoush. The sequin-jacketed, giant-bereted, Euro-accented model-insulter may as well be called Mugatu.
He produces a sheep’s head and a circular saw. A lucky model is soon clutching the unfortunate animal's eyeballs in one hand while smearing its blood over her face with the other. “Yeah, he’s crazy - but most of the great artists in this universe have been crazy.” Yes, but not all of the crazy people have been great artists...
“You are hiding in the jungle, and someone is following you,” Anoush tells another model, who is dressed as a giant pink-and-green mop. "Make him look like Jesus," he demands inexplicably of the next. This is excellent stuff.
Sadly, Anoush is just a visiting dignitary. But it's the regular staff that will keep us coming back to M3 for more. There's the school's principal, Debbie - the ex-model with a heart of gold, who is moved to tears when one of her charges books a campaign.
There's model mentor Matt, who'd clearly like to mentor the brains out of one particular girl. Will he be able to keep his hands off the others in the weeks to come?
There’s Matt’s female counterpart Dani J: “Every single model needs a pair of heels all the time – heels, heels, heels, heels! Never, ever, ever, ever, ever come anywhere without a pair of heels.”
There's Mr Fierce, of course, The Catwalk Professor: a strutting, six-foot, frock-wearing dude who demands the female models watch him in order to “learn to be a woman”.
And there's Demitri, the absolutely lovely, but clearly second-rate, make-up artist.
It’s £199 a day to go on this course. If I was one of the models, I might want my money back. As a viewer, I think it’s fantastic value.
Models, Misfits & Mayhem is on Tuesdays at 10pm on ITV2
