Jollyoaks

29 Aug

Just as The Only Way Is Essex has its Made In Chelsea, Hollyoaks too needs its posh counterpart,  Jollyoaks.  Jollyoaks follows the adventures of a disparate bunch of venal, rich youths who also live in Chester.  It can be filmed on mostly the same sets and be set in the same universe but the characters from each of the shows shall never meet, and nor shall their storylines intersect.

This serves two purposes :  it cashes in on the fashion for unlikeable monied teenagers who were born into privilege and also serves to draw attention to the widening class divides in today’s Britain.
