Narrated by MTV presenter, Flash Louis, the 30 minute show takes place around cool hot spots in North London where we see the party of six flex their talents. Flash is hoping to become a superstar DJ and a musician. Will Cameron has an on/off relationships with Daisy (although if the Ronson rumours are correct we can assume it is off), and despite his forays into modelling ie a massive Burberry campaign and stints of prancing the catwalks in Milan, he has his heart set on becoming a rock star with his band, Blondelle. Portia Freeman, recently featured in the ES magazine and splashed all over the tabloids getting ever so close to Pete Doherty, has been touted as the new Kate Moss. Kesh is a superstar on MySpace and is also a funky fashion designer who plans to launch a stunning debut at London Fashion Week. Daryl is a model turned actor who bids to become the next James Bond. At the heart of this clique is the delectable Daisy who holds the group together.
I really thought I was going to hate this programme with it's 'so cool we hurt' characters but I enjoyed it very much. The show may be about Flash and his mates but Daisy steals all the limelight. Aside from her family drama I really do not know much about the chick but she oozes charisma. She epitomises post modern Brit chick and I am sure this will hold her in good stead while she sets out to conquer NYC. I am not really feeling a UK equivalent of The Hills, the beauty of the programme is that we are watching all these glam creatures leading glam lives in wonderful weather. London tends to be more cool than glam and we certainly do not have great weather. Lydia Prior sums it up perfectly in her article in soapnet.com here.
