ALS Ice Bucket Challenge British Edition

I’ve noticed some of our favorite actors from British telly have been doing the ice bucket challenge so I thought I’d post some of the videos. I’m sure there are probably some I missed.

Sean Teale (from Skins)

Nico Mirallegro (from My Mad Fat Diary)

Ok so he deleted his so here is a picture of him from his twitter:


Thomas Turgoose (from This Is England)

Jack O’Connell

I think this was Jack O’Connell’s response to the challenge, he’s so obscure which is frustrating and endearing.


Benedict Cumberbach (Sherlock)

Lucas Pasqualino (Skins)

Of course last but not least the delicious…

Idris Elba (Luther)

Edited to Add:

Will Merrick & Alexander Arnold (Skins)

Chris O’Dowd (The IT Crowd)

Ollie Barberi (Skins)

More Seasons!

I’d give up almost any show to be guaranteed this show would return for another 3 seasons.

Nico On Finn

Rae and Finn

I am so glad Nico, who plays Finn on My Mad Fat Diary, said this in an interview:

“I don’t think Finn is too good looking for Rae at all, I want the audience to think that Finn understands Rae and that’s the type of girl he’s looking for and they both get on with each other in the same way and both love each other’s company, and they love music and all that kind of thing.”

I wanted to post this because it fills my heart with so much joy to read this and I want everyone to watch this show and let it all wash over them too. This show is a long time coming and how I wish I could have had this show around when I was a teenager.


Rae Earl Quotes

It was hard finding a bunch of these in one place online so I’m making a post of the great ones and will continue to add to it:


I’d shag him until there was nothing left. Just a pair of glasses and a damp patch.

I am a body dysmorphic without the dysmorphic. I am a bulimic without the sick. I am fat.


He smelt of boy sweat and CK One. I thought my ovaries were going to explode.

I think I might be about to commit a sex crime.


There is nothing wrong with having a bad day, nothing at all. There is nothing wrong with putting your jamies on and staying in. the world will wait, the world will not combust because you can’t force a smile.

I can’t eat when it feels like someone’s taken a piss on my soul.

I want him to treat me like that little goat from Jurassic park and just. Eat. Me. Whole.


Walnut Whip


On My Mad Fat Diary Rae took some weird chocolate looking thing out of a wrapper and flicked something off the top of it. Later her mother yelled at her for stealing all the whips so I had to look this up. It’s a Walnut Whip, which is whirl-shaped cone of milk chocolate with a whipped vanilla fondant filling, topped with a half-walnut. Wtf?! Europe has some of the strangest snack foods. I just can’t imagine what would posess someone to create something like this and market it.

My Mad Fat Diary Series 2

The show is back, but not soon enough. Here are a bunch of gifs for your pleasure and the trailer.
