GLAMOUR list Nine female TV characters that we don’t ever want to see again
1 Flawless sleeper
Perfect hair! Full makeup in bed! She’s supposedly waking up after a drunken one-night stand, but really looks more groomed than we ever do.
4 Admiring sidekick
She’s the superhero’s mortal pal who’s wowed by his powers, or the cop who can’t crack the case until the male detective does. In other words: a reductive cliché written by a lame man.
7 Obstacle girlfriend
Our heroine’s dream guy is taken. But it’s OK because his girlfriend is annoyingly, and conveniently, naggy. This hardly reflects well on him – or on our heroine when she steals him.
2 Breakup casualty
She sits cross-legged on the couch in PJS, eating whole tubs of ice cream and crying. We love you, Bridget Jones, but you have a lot to answer for.
5 Adorable goof
She’s supposed to be awkward, makes the odd blunder and drops things. So cutely klutzy! Luckily, she looks like a supermodel or she’d be annoying. Wait – she’s still annoying.
8 Bitchy-but-not cheerleader
Hair-tossing, eye-rolling and wearing the skimpy outfit 24/7? Doesn’t happen, despite what pervy middleaged TV executives might believe.
3 Geek who isn’t really that geeky
“I’m such a geek,” she shrugs self-deprecatingly. FYI, looking cute in spectacles does not a geek make.
6 Miserably lonely career woman
“Love, kids or a fulfilling career – choose two, lady viewers, because you can’t have it all.” You can, actually, so bore off with your outdated views.
9 Tomboy who gets a makeover
She’s an individual (gross). Cue montage in which she’s transformed into an identikit girlie girl. Then we see she has boobs and boys notice her. Yawn.
