Ladette To Lady, M Chan­nel 9, Tues­day, 9.30pm Way­ward Aussie girls Du­ra­tion: 1 hour

COOK­ERY teacher Rose­mary Shrager says the vul­gar stars of Aus­tralia’s Ladette to Lady were among the worstbe­haved the show has en­coun­tered.

Shrager, who taught way­ward girls from the US and the UK be­fore tackling the Aussies, was shocked by their be­hav­iour from the mo­ment they ar­rived in Eng­land. How do the Aus­tralian ladettes stack up against the UK and US girls you’ve men­tored? I was shocked, se­ri­ously shocked. They came in with the most hor­ri­ble at­ti­tude I’ve ever seen. They were loud, rude and in your face. Did they have any re­deem­ing qual­i­ties? Th­ese girls ac­tu­ally wanted so badly to change, they wanted to badly please us and do the right thing most of the time, which is a change. Is it daunt­ing to coun­sel girls when you aren’t qual­i­fied in that field? I am not a coun­sel­lor, but I have had prob­lems in my life and can un­der­stand what they are feel­ing some­times. We just wanted to make th­ese girls bet­ter, get them out of ly­ing and get them out of drink­ing so much.

Men­tor: Rose­mary Shrager.
