DRESSING! Trinny & Susannah Undress, ITV1, 8.00pm

Trinny and Susannah UndressOh yes, they're back - and they're still planning to delve into your psyche as well as your wardrobe. It's probably something of a relief to Trinny and Susannah that they're no longer up against Holby City as they were during the last series (although whether being up against Holby Blue is any less stressful we have no idea, since we've not checked the ratings in a while), although perhaps surprisingly our viewing loyalties tended to lie with these two anyway, despite our better judgement.

For those of you who missed the last series, the essential difference between this and What Not To Wear is that Trin and Suse not only go through people's wardrobes to vanquish their fugliest ensembles, but they also play armchair psychiatrists-slash-life coaches in order to establish exactly what horrifying mental trauma might cause a person to wear an ill-fitting bra with a hot pink camisole and lime green capri pants.

That side of the show is always a little bit dodgy, and a lot of the advice given out is the sort of stuff that equally unqualified people across the country are probably yelling at their tellies at the exact same time, but we can't deny that they know what they're talking about when it comes to sartorial matters. Plus, the sight of them barging in on hapless women in changing rooms and brazenly cupping their breasts still hasn't got old as far as we're concerned, so we're happy to see them back.

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
