    Real Housewives of Cheshire

    I watch this on ITV player on Tuesday as my guilty pleasure, as I can't get out atm. I saw "Cheshire" in the title, watched it and got hooked. Tanya is the only one who is not self-obsessed; she's a sweet girl. Dawn is awful!

    MAC favourites?

    Benefit fraud

    I wouldn't report anyone, but that's mostly because I'm a moral coward. I totally take on board, also, that it is difficult to make an accurate judgement and it's possible to cause awful stress. However, to balance the argument, we all pay - if we are ourselves honest - for fraudulent claims...
