  • it was only by pure chance that I tripped over the first series of Drop Dead Gorgeous during its recent rerun on BBC One, but there's no chance of me missing the second series of this excellent comedy drama when it starts over on BBC Three shortly.

    After the on-again-off-again shenanigans of the last series, the new show takes off into the sophisticated stratosphere of the world of modeling as life for Ashley Webb becomes ever more bizarre and heady, and relationships with the rest of her family go from worse to dire.

    Ashley is drawn in by the endless whirl of champagne parties and massive pay packets, but outside the glitzy bubble the future of the Webb family is in jeopardy – it's falling apart as a direct result of Ashley's rise to stardom. The situation isn't helped by the continuing rivalry between pushy mum (and nightmare agent) Pauline and Ashley's official agent Murray.

    But that's not the worst of it. Ashley's relationship with sister Jade is in tatters and her poor dad Terry is still trying to pretend that their old mundane life can continue as normal.
