The TV tie-in for the drama series My Mad Fat Diary, broadcast on e4 in January 2013.
A second series will be aired in Jan/Feb 2014.
Please let it be true that men secretly fancy Alison Moyet and Dawn French... Please make my big personality count more than a little waist squeezed into something small and revealing... Please let my inner beauty REALLY matter like Oprah Winfrey says it does, and let me grow up to look like Kylie Minogue... So some man can free my inner minx that’s squashed underneath these pounds of flesh... And please... Oh, please... Make Walkers prawn cocktail crisps fat-free. Amen. PS Even Dannii Minogue will do. So this little fat girl was fed up, lonely and stuck in a small town in the 1980s surrounded by a sea of thin. Every day I boiled over with a stew of hormones, sexual frustration, jealousy and lust, and so, as all these things were banned in Lincolnshire until the late 1990s, I threw down everything I felt into three top-secret exercise books I’d nicked from school. That’s where the diary started.
