Mother knows best.

0:00:020:00:03

She brings you into the world and she's on hand to kiss it all better

0:00:030:00:06

and guide you through the pitfalls of youth before pushing you out

0:00:060:00:09

into the big, wide world.

0:00:090:00:11

Unless she's pushing you out the way to get to Top Shop.

0:00:110:00:14

Up and down this United Kingdom,

0:00:160:00:19

mums are refusing point blank to grow up.

0:00:190:00:22

I could still pull young lads. I've no doubt I can.

0:00:220:00:24

They're outraging their daughters with their behaviour...

0:00:240:00:27

Oh, my God! Would you like your mum dancing like that?

0:00:270:00:31

..and their outfits.

0:00:310:00:32

Oh, their outfits...

0:00:320:00:34

This is Hotter Than My Daughter,

0:00:360:00:38

where we attempt to resolve mum-and-daughter style rivalries

0:00:380:00:41

and tackle the issues that lie beneath...

0:00:410:00:43

Oh, my God. Mum, what are you doing?

0:00:430:00:46

..whether it's a mum who's more Lady Gaga than Lady Di...

0:00:460:00:48

Have I not got a nice figure?

0:00:480:00:50

..or a daughter who loves her cardie more than the party.

0:00:500:00:54

I don't want attention. I just want to feel happy in what I wear.

0:00:540:00:57

We ask an honest jury to tell us, and our mums and daughters,

0:00:570:01:00

what they really think of the style crimes on show...

0:01:000:01:04

-I'm gobsmacked.

-Way too much boobs.

-No, sorry.

0:01:040:01:08

..and then we give the mother of all make-overs to our troubled twosome.

0:01:080:01:12

Welcome to Hotter Than My Daughter.

0:01:140:01:16

Coming up on the show,

0:01:280:01:29

we meet the Spanish siren who's determined to be, well, feminine...

0:01:290:01:33

This is feminine. It's ultra-feminine.

0:01:330:01:36

It's really feminine. I think it's got to look feminine.

0:01:360:01:40

..and her long-suffering daughter, who's desperate to be different.

0:01:400:01:43

-You look absolutely gorgeous.

-It's horrible. Get it off me.

0:01:430:01:47

Mum-and-daughter relationships can be thorny at the best of times,

0:01:470:01:50

but imagine how complicated that situation gets

0:01:500:01:53

when Mum is a sexy glamour model.

0:01:530:01:54

My mum is wild. Completely wild.

0:01:590:02:01

Tarty. Slaggy. Sorry!

0:02:040:02:06

I'm boiling!

0:02:060:02:09

This is a prime example.

0:02:090:02:12

It's showing her boobs and her bum, which is what you like to do.

0:02:120:02:16

-OK.

-I'm the mum in role reversal, and this is like having a kid.

0:02:170:02:21

That is absolutely disgusting.

0:02:210:02:24

I could happily live in Converse, leggings and a vest top.

0:02:240:02:28

I would use that to mop the floor.

0:02:280:02:31

I think I'm a secret chav.

0:02:310:02:33

I've got it deep down, a bit of chavness.

0:02:330:02:35

I'd just love to see you, like,

0:02:350:02:38

y'know, a bit flamboyant, a little bit kind of glammed up.

0:02:380:02:42

What an absolute cheek!

0:02:420:02:44

I am hotter than my daughter.

0:02:440:02:46

Sorry, Alysha.

0:02:460:02:49

56-year-old glamour girl Carolene Lancefield is one sexy grandma.

0:02:490:02:54

Ugh! Where's your frog? Is it here? Ugh!

0:02:540:02:57

This might put you off kids for life.

0:02:580:03:01

She had her only daughter at 30 and split with the father

0:03:020:03:05

before baby Alysha was even born.

0:03:050:03:07

Right back from when I was pregnant, there was so many problems.

0:03:070:03:11

He's got a heart of gold, but a professional gambler -

0:03:110:03:14

he's never going to change.

0:03:140:03:15

She raised Alysha on her own

0:03:150:03:16

while holding down bar and cleaning jobs at the same time.

0:03:160:03:19

It was like I can't live with that insecurity, not having money

0:03:190:03:24

to pay the rent, not having money to buy nappies and stuff like that.

0:03:240:03:29

Y'know, it was more, my priority was for my daughter.

0:03:290:03:31

Now Alysha is all grown up, Carolene has more financial freedom

0:03:310:03:36

and is enjoying life as a lingerie model.

0:03:360:03:39

I love the feel of leather.

0:03:390:03:41

I love the silky, stroke-y kind of materials.

0:03:410:03:44

Have you got big sizes?

0:03:440:03:46

I didn't probably think

0:03:460:03:48

that I was going to be doing glamour modelling or something in my fifties.

0:03:480:03:52

I was always going to be a rich man's wife!

0:03:550:03:57

Do you like? Does my bum look big in these?

0:03:570:04:00

Nice and snug.

0:04:000:04:02

Don't get me wrong, she looks good.

0:04:020:04:04

My mum's got an amazing body,

0:04:040:04:06

really smooth skin, no wrinkles.

0:04:060:04:09

Feels nice. Looks pretty.

0:04:090:04:12

Yeah, I don't know how she's managed

0:04:120:04:14

to get away with having a wrinkle-free face.

0:04:140:04:16

Maybe one day it'll catch up with her and she'll look like a tea bag.

0:04:160:04:19

I feel hot.

0:04:190:04:22

I'll be the oldest swinger in town.

0:04:220:04:24

Even when I'm 100, I'll be there on the dance floor with my Zimmer frame,

0:04:240:04:27

bopping away.

0:04:270:04:28

I think that's a good thing,

0:04:280:04:30

that she's young-minded and she wants to go out and have fun,

0:04:300:04:33

fair enough, but sometimes, she don't know where to stop.

0:04:330:04:36

It was Alysha who encouraged her mum to enter the glamour game

0:04:380:04:41

after she took similar jobs to pay for her education.

0:04:410:04:44

I sort of did it for the money,

0:04:440:04:46

but my mum actually does it cos she enjoys it.

0:04:460:04:48

Now 26, Alysha has turned her back on the modelling world

0:04:480:04:53

and lives in London with her partner and two kids.

0:04:530:04:56

I mean, I got pregnant when I was 23.

0:04:560:04:58

I had both my babies really, really close together.

0:04:580:05:02

I found that really hard, but it made me grow up, like I had to.

0:05:020:05:05

These two are extremely close

0:05:050:05:07

and have gone to long lengths to prove it.

0:05:070:05:10

So, she got my name tattooed.

0:05:100:05:12

I've got a picture of her from when she was 21 there,

0:05:120:05:16

I think, 21 or 22 there.

0:05:160:05:18

So that's my mum when she was younger.

0:05:180:05:20

But there is one thing they have never agreed about.

0:05:200:05:24

So that would go round your back bit.

0:05:240:05:26

No, it doesn't! If you have that, you would have everything showing.

0:05:260:05:31

No, I... No...

0:05:310:05:33

Cos you dress like a slut.

0:05:330:05:35

You always have cleavage out.

0:05:350:05:37

Well, they poke out! I can't help it!

0:05:370:05:41

I've got a flat chest, I haven't got no cleavage to hang out.

0:05:410:05:44

She's got my share, I think. Me army trousers.

0:05:440:05:47

I love them, even though the bottoms are all scuffed.

0:05:470:05:51

But they're really comfy.

0:05:510:05:52

I probably look like a bit of a slob sometimes.

0:05:520:05:55

-Seriously, look...

-I would wear that with a pair of leggings

0:05:550:05:58

and a pair of white Converse and be done.

0:05:580:06:00

The kids will have a snotty nose,

0:06:000:06:02

and I'll just get my top and wipe their nose,

0:06:020:06:04

and I'll have snot stains all over me.

0:06:040:06:06

And then I'd probably sleep in it, as well, that night.

0:06:060:06:09

You would, as well! You're horrible!

0:06:090:06:12

I just need Alysha to appreciate just how gorgeous she is.

0:06:120:06:16

I'd like to see my mum in...something classy,

0:06:160:06:22

something that doesn't show off everything

0:06:220:06:24

but still lets people know that she's got a good figure.

0:06:240:06:28

Even for someone as gorgeous as Alysha, her insecurities stem from

0:06:320:06:36

what plagues most women throughout their lives.

0:06:360:06:39

Yep, it's the old body issues. I popped in to find out more.

0:06:390:06:42

OK, tell me a bit about your style, then, Alysha.

0:06:420:06:45

I think it's routine and habit now.

0:06:450:06:47

It is probably since I've had kids.

0:06:470:06:48

But I can't blame then, because I do have time to make an effort.

0:06:480:06:52

They'll be playing and I could be choosing something nice to wear.

0:06:520:06:55

Alysha, to me, she's a beautiful, stunning girl, but she doesn't think

0:06:550:06:59

she can wear dresses or skirts, cos she thinks she's got skinny legs.

0:06:590:07:03

I've got twig legs. I dunno, I don't like having little, skinny legs.

0:07:030:07:08

I'd like shapely, womanly legs.

0:07:080:07:10

Her biggest bane...is her boobs.

0:07:100:07:15

She's always wanted a boob job, actually.

0:07:150:07:18

I didn't inherit the big boobs, you see, so I'm a bit jealous.

0:07:180:07:21

I know you're a young mum, but that's the main thing,

0:07:210:07:24

you're still young.

0:07:240:07:25

And you do need to make the most of yourself,

0:07:250:07:27

you do need to still make the effort.

0:07:270:07:29

Mm-hm. I know I need to.

0:07:290:07:32

So I don't think I have to ask you, but I was hoping

0:07:320:07:35

you'd let me take you and your mum to Hotness Heaven,

0:07:350:07:38

and we're going to tone your mum down a little bit, like you want,

0:07:380:07:42

and maybe, for your mum, you can spruce yourself up a bit.

0:07:420:07:47

-I think I need to.

-OK! Good!

0:07:470:07:50

So Carolene and Alysha hot-stepped it to Hotness Heaven,

0:07:500:07:54

where we've assembled the very best primpers and preeners,

0:07:540:07:57

who can't wait to get their hands on them.

0:07:570:07:59

-Hello, ladies!

-Hi!

0:07:590:08:02

Carolene, Alysha, how are you feeling?

0:08:020:08:05

-Er, great!

-Nervous. Very nervous.

0:08:050:08:08

What's making you nervous, Alysha?

0:08:080:08:10

I have a feeling I'm going to be put in a dress.

0:08:100:08:12

Carolene, you want to grow old disgracefully,

0:08:120:08:15

so what's the worst thing we could do to you today?

0:08:150:08:17

-Let's see.

-We don't do fuddy-duddy here.

0:08:170:08:20

No, I didn't think so. You have a reputation to maintain, don't you?

0:08:200:08:23

Absolutely!

0:08:230:08:24

These two are safe in the hands of our expert stylists now,

0:08:260:08:29

but I think they've got their work cut out toning Carolene down.

0:08:290:08:34

What's the most embarrassing thing your mum's ever done?

0:08:340:08:36

We went out for my cousin's hen night, and I went to the toilet,

0:08:360:08:39

I came back and she was doing a striptease

0:08:390:08:42

down to her bra and knickers in the club.

0:08:420:08:44

A striptease? No way!

0:08:440:08:46

I do silly things sometimes and I'm not the most kind of "normal" mum.

0:08:460:08:50

Sorry.

0:08:500:08:52

And now it's time to see the results. I love this bit!

0:08:580:09:01

Mum-of-two Alysha never bothered with her appearance.

0:09:010:09:04

Her clothes were old and tatty,

0:09:040:09:06

and her hair was supplemented by ratty extensions.

0:09:060:09:10

And this is the new Alysha.

0:09:120:09:14

We finally get to see a bit of that fabulous figure.

0:09:140:09:17

We would never want her to feel uncomfortable, so we've kept it

0:09:170:09:20

understated and elegant. But what will she think?

0:09:200:09:23

Oh, my God.

0:09:290:09:32

Hey!

0:09:320:09:34

-Actually, I do really like it.

-Yeah? You're getting emotional!

0:09:340:09:38

-Sorry!

-It's all right.

0:09:380:09:40

-What do you love about it?

-Erm, I'm actually not repulsed by my legs.

0:09:400:09:44

Look at those legs!

0:09:440:09:45

I think that's the most shocking thing, I thought I would be.

0:09:450:09:48

-I really like the hair.

-No extensions.

0:09:480:09:51

And the jacket. I love the jacket.

0:09:510:09:52

Love the jacket.

0:09:520:09:54

The colour of the dress I love, the belt, the shoes.

0:09:540:09:56

So do you think this might convince you to ditch

0:09:560:09:59

the comfy clothes for something a bit more adventurous?

0:09:590:10:02

I will probably now wear a dress out.

0:10:020:10:04

If I go out, I'll probably wear a dress, which I've never done!

0:10:040:10:07

That's brilliant! All round, good job? Yay!

0:10:070:10:13

And now it's Carolene's turn.

0:10:160:10:17

This is what Carolene looked like

0:10:170:10:19

when she first stepped in to Hotness Heaven.

0:10:190:10:22

Her cleavage was showing just as much as her roots.

0:10:220:10:25

What a transformation.

0:10:280:10:30

The blonde hair has made way for a fiery red,

0:10:300:10:33

and we've gone for a vampy daytime look.

0:10:330:10:35

Let's hope she still feels hot!

0:10:350:10:37

Hey! It's a whole new me!

0:10:440:10:46

Hello, hot momma!

0:10:470:10:49

-Hello!

-Let's see you in the mirror.

0:10:490:10:53

What do you think?

0:10:530:10:54

I like it. I could get very, very used to being dark and...

0:10:540:10:58

..being a fiery redhead?

0:10:580:11:01

Hey, you know what they say about redheads.

0:11:010:11:03

And with this top, there's no more accidental boob spillage, is there?

0:11:030:11:07

No, I'm quite covered and conservative but still sexy.

0:11:070:11:12

Extremely sexy, I would say, yeah!

0:11:120:11:14

Definitely.

0:11:140:11:16

Shall we test it out later? Shall we go hit the town?

0:11:160:11:19

So Carolene and Alysha's old look is consigned to history.

0:11:230:11:27

They're about to see each other's new look on the Hotter catwalk.

0:11:270:11:31

So, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Carolene and Alysha.

0:11:310:11:35

Let's see who's hotter.

0:11:350:11:37

Hey, ladies! Oh, what's wrong?!

0:11:590:12:03

-She looks lovely.

-Yeah? You like it?

0:12:030:12:05

So does she! She always does.

0:12:050:12:07

You look really, really stylish.

0:12:070:12:09

-I love it. Your hair looks wicked.

-Really?

-I love it, yeah.

0:12:090:12:12

And, Carolene, what do you think about Alysha?

0:12:120:12:15

She looks amazing, doesn't she?

0:12:150:12:16

She's a glamour puss whatever she's in, but she looks amazing.

0:12:160:12:19

The hair's gorgeous, make-up's gorgeous.

0:12:190:12:23

She's just my gorgeous girl!

0:12:230:12:26

And no more baggy clothes.

0:12:260:12:28

We're ready for a night on the town.

0:12:280:12:30

Now, one thing you can guarantee about mums and daughters

0:12:330:12:36

is they're not short of an opinion. Or several.

0:12:360:12:39

I think cosmetic surgery is fine

0:12:410:12:45

if you're doing it for a really good reason.

0:12:450:12:47

I don't like it when women have their lips done.

0:12:470:12:50

I would say the same, actually.

0:12:500:12:52

Really trout pout or when they've got no facial movement,

0:12:520:12:56

so people can't move their eyebrows and you don't know

0:12:560:12:59

if they're happy or sad or if they're just not listening.

0:12:590:13:02

-No expression whatsoever.

-Yeah.

-I think I would have Botox.

0:13:020:13:05

-You think you would?

-I think I would, yeah.

0:13:050:13:07

That's the only thing, I think.

0:13:070:13:09

But as you get older,

0:13:110:13:12

I would say I would never say never to cosmetic surgery.

0:13:120:13:16

I've breast-fed four children. I need a little bit of help!

0:13:180:13:22

I'd love an eye lift, if there's one going.

0:13:230:13:27

I'm all for it, and I'm looking forward to having it done soon.

0:13:280:13:33

Now let's meet Carmen and Becky, a pair of Scottish sirens at war over style.

0:13:330:13:38

I'd describe my mum as being a drama queen...

0:13:410:13:45

Look at me, darling! Femininity!

0:13:450:13:48

-..mad...

-Whoo, whoo! Feminine!

0:13:480:13:51

..a total exhibitionist.

0:13:510:13:52

-That is short.

-She has to be the centre of attention all the time.

0:13:520:13:56

Whoo! Whoo! Whoo-whoo! Whoo!

0:13:560:13:59

What a joke!

0:13:590:14:02

You look ridiculous.

0:14:020:14:03

I think I am definitely hotter than my daughter.

0:14:030:14:06

I wouldn't dare go out on the street looking like that!

0:14:060:14:09

-What?

-Never.

0:14:090:14:10

48 year-old artist Carmen Taylor lives with her only child, Becky,

0:14:100:14:14

in the far north of Scotland.

0:14:140:14:16

And they're not your run of the mill mother and daughter.

0:14:180:14:21

Since I can remember, she always walks around starkers!

0:14:210:14:25

Like no clothes on, totally naked all the time.

0:14:250:14:28

Look, here I am! Aren't I beautiful?

0:14:280:14:31

She used to Hoover in the nude.

0:14:310:14:33

Really embarrassing!

0:14:330:14:35

Carmen had Becky at 25 but split with the father

0:14:370:14:40

four and a half years later.

0:14:400:14:42

My mum is a complete hippy.

0:14:420:14:45

Since I was born, she home educated me.

0:14:450:14:49

Since then, the two have become each other's world.

0:14:490:14:53

And have trotted the globe together.

0:14:530:14:55

When we were in Spain, her dresses used to be so low-cut.

0:14:550:15:01

A lot of these dresses were kind of partially see through.

0:15:010:15:04

A lot of time she didn't wear bras.

0:15:040:15:07

That is really embarrassing.

0:15:070:15:08

Single for the last eight years,

0:15:100:15:11

Carmen forges her living as an artist.

0:15:110:15:14

As soon as you say to someone, "I'm an abstract artist,"

0:15:140:15:18

they just immediately think you throw a bucket of paint on the wall.

0:15:180:15:24

Carmen sees herself as a true Bohemian.

0:15:240:15:26

She and Becky keep themselves to themselves.

0:15:260:15:29

It was very erotic for me.

0:15:320:15:33

I really enjoy this painting immensely.

0:15:330:15:36

23 year-old Becky is unemployed.

0:15:380:15:40

She spends most of her time at home with just mum for company,

0:15:400:15:43

and has little motivation for work or socialising.

0:15:430:15:47

If she had her way, she would lay around in her pyjamas all day.

0:15:470:15:52

Carmen wants Becky out of her pyjamas

0:15:520:15:54

and into a mini version of herself.

0:15:540:15:57

Showing your feminine side. This is feminine. It's ultra feminine.

0:15:570:16:01

It's really feminine.

0:16:010:16:03

I think it's good to look feminine.

0:16:030:16:05

-Why do you think what you've got on is feminine?

-It's obvious it is.

0:16:050:16:09

It's not feminine, it's tacky.

0:16:090:16:11

But Carmen's constant nagging about being, well, feminine,

0:16:110:16:14

has pushed her daughter in the opposite style direction.

0:16:140:16:18

She's all into rock bands. Led Zeppelin is her favourite band.

0:16:220:16:26

And she likes the leather jackets and she likes the grungy look.

0:16:290:16:34

This is my jacket. I love it. It's cool.

0:16:340:16:38

Well, I just think, "Where's her motorbike?", you know? Mad Max!

0:16:380:16:43

I love it. You know.

0:16:430:16:46

Mum and daughter are now locked in a battle of wills,

0:16:460:16:49

-each convinced the other is wrong.

-Look at you!

0:16:490:16:53

You look like something that works at the Moulin Rouge.

0:16:530:16:57

I think she's unaware of her body shape, perhaps,

0:16:570:17:00

and so she'll dress a certain way and it'll look vulgar.

0:17:000:17:03

Dolly Parton wore something like this.

0:17:030:17:06

Nobody pointed the finger at her. She had bigger tits.

0:17:060:17:09

So, she's your like role model?

0:17:110:17:13

I think she's a wonderful woman. She's feminine, sweet.

0:17:130:17:16

-She's certainly not a slut.

-My mum may think she's the hottest,

0:17:160:17:20

but the low-cut tops and dresses have to go.

0:17:200:17:24

Well I don't think, by a long shot, Becky's maximising her potential.

0:17:260:17:31

I remember when you put that on, with your make-up and your hair up,

0:17:310:17:35

and you stood at the top of the staircase, you looked like

0:17:350:17:37

-an Oscars.

-Oh, shut up!

-You did.

0:17:370:17:39

You looked absolutely gorgeous.

0:17:390:17:41

It's horrible. Get it off me.

0:17:410:17:43

She could be hotter.

0:17:430:17:44

Just she needs to get the confidence to feel the heat.

0:17:440:17:50

Judging by that, these two definitely need some help,

0:17:550:17:59

-so I hot-footed it to Scotland to find out more.

-Hi!

0:17:590:18:03

Hi! Thank you.

0:18:030:18:05

-What's the problem here?

-I hate everything she wears

0:18:050:18:08

-and everything in her wardrobe.

-If we go in an underwear shop,

0:18:080:18:11

I'm always pointing out to her very feminine underwear.

0:18:110:18:15

You don't always have to dress for a man.

0:18:150:18:18

-It's just for yourself, to feel feminine.

-It can't make you feminine.

0:18:180:18:22

Surely it's more important what your personality's like.

0:18:220:18:25

I think it's not just what you wear over your underwear that's important.

0:18:250:18:30

Why are you digging my underwear?

0:18:300:18:32

You don't even know what my underwear looks like.

0:18:320:18:35

-The thing is...

-I don't want to look tacky and sleazy.

0:18:350:18:38

-So, you might as well say slutty.

-Yeah, well, yeah.

0:18:380:18:40

I do not look slutty.

0:18:400:18:41

You do. You totally do. I think the way she dresses lets her down.

0:18:410:18:46

No, you're completely wrong.

0:18:460:18:48

-I think if you just...

-This is what makes me... I do look classy.

0:18:480:18:52

How can you say you look classy?!

0:18:520:18:54

-Because I do.

-How's that classy?!

0:18:540:18:56

-What's wrong with it?!

-It's vulgar.

0:18:560:18:59

I haven't got my tits hanging out!

0:18:590:19:01

-Yes, you do!

-Where?! They're covered.

0:19:010:19:04

These two are in clear need of some style counsel.

0:19:080:19:10

In the local boutique,

0:19:100:19:11

I found the perfect jury ready to give their verdict.

0:19:110:19:16

-Hello, fashionable people of Scotland!

-Hello!

0:19:160:19:19

Today, I present to you a case of serious fashion crime.

0:19:190:19:23

It's down to you to pass judgment.

0:19:230:19:24

So, will our defendants please step forward?

0:19:240:19:28

OK, what do you think about Carmen's look?

0:19:340:19:36

-I love your hair but...

-Thank you.

0:19:360:19:40

Your boobies are mental!

0:19:400:19:42

There's so much going on.

0:19:440:19:45

I can see your boobs before I look at your face.

0:19:450:19:48

I just think it's a part of a woman's body.

0:19:480:19:51

It's too tight for you.

0:19:510:19:53

Yeah, she always buys clothes that are too small for her.

0:19:530:19:56

I like the skirt but I think it does look like you're wearing underwear.

0:19:560:19:59

And what do you think about Becky's look?

0:19:590:20:02

You need to show a bit more skin yourself. Show your shape.

0:20:020:20:06

I don't know...

0:20:060:20:08

She feels insecure because she's put on weight.

0:20:080:20:11

The clothes that I had either feel tighter or, you know.

0:20:110:20:14

-You'd never notice you'd put on weight.

-I have.

0:20:140:20:16

You look a very healthy size.

0:20:160:20:18

-Exactly!

-I feel really, just uncomfortable about that.

0:20:180:20:21

I would have a field day dressing you!

0:20:210:20:23

I would absolutely love to dress you both.

0:20:230:20:26

Because I think, "Oh, these guys look amazing,

0:20:260:20:29

"but they could look better!".

0:20:290:20:31

It seems the jury has hit a raw nerve about Becky's weight.

0:20:340:20:37

I want to dig a little deeper.

0:20:370:20:39

Carmen, tell me about Becky.

0:20:390:20:40

She's got absolutely no self confidence, no self esteem.

0:20:400:20:45

For some reason, she's got it into her head she's obese.

0:20:450:20:48

I always used to dress up and always made an effort

0:20:480:20:52

to look really nice and stuff but since, you know, getting fat...

0:20:520:20:58

-You are so not even close to fat.

-I am, I am, I know I am.

0:20:580:21:02

I can see in the mirror and I know how much weight I've put on.

0:21:020:21:06

So, I feel totally uncomfortable.

0:21:060:21:09

She's completely inhibited about her body.

0:21:090:21:11

And she's got all these hang-ups.

0:21:110:21:13

Either her breasts are too small, she says she's got a huge J-Lo bum.

0:21:130:21:17

She says her thighs are too big, she's got a huge Buddha belly.

0:21:170:21:21

-I don't see that person.

-I don't see that at all.

-I don't.

0:21:210:21:25

Now, your mum has been trying to tell you for a long time

0:21:250:21:28

that you are gorgeous, and she wants you to make the most of it.

0:21:280:21:31

I don't want to cry. I've got so much make-up on.

0:21:310:21:35

It really upsets me because I just feel she's totally wasting herself.

0:21:350:21:40

Being skinny won't make you happy,

0:21:400:21:42

-but making the best of yourself will.

-OK.

0:21:420:21:45

So I'm thinking you'll come to Hotness Heaven with me

0:21:450:21:49

and we'll give you a different look.

0:21:490:21:51

And maybe then you won't focus on the weight thing so much.

0:21:510:21:54

-What do you think?

-I just want to feel comfortable, but the way I am.

0:21:540:21:59

-Who I am.

-Have we got a deal?

0:21:590:22:01

-Yeah.

-Good. Cos it's about time you saw yourself in a different light.

0:22:010:22:06

Yeah. Thank you.

0:22:060:22:09

I cannot wait to get started!

0:22:100:22:12

And, without further ado, we whisked Carmen and Becky off

0:22:130:22:16

to our sartorial sanctuary where lying in wait

0:22:160:22:19

are some of the very best stylists, gagging to get to grips with them.

0:22:190:22:24

We've taken the jury's comments on-board, and we're going to see

0:22:250:22:28

if we can strike a style balance in this particular relationship.

0:22:280:22:32

-Ladies, welcome to Hotness Heaven. How are you feeling?

-Nervous.

0:22:320:22:35

Becky, what is the worst thing we could do to you today?

0:22:350:22:38

Make me look conservative and chop my hair off.

0:22:380:22:41

-What would you hate for us to do, Carmen?

-Um...

0:22:410:22:44

Make me look like Margaret Thatcher.

0:22:440:22:47

Shame. Carmen might have suited a Maggie bouffant.

0:22:470:22:50

Anyway, these two are in the hands of our style team now,

0:22:500:22:53

and they don't have a clue what we've got planned for them.

0:22:530:22:56

We'll keep our mirrors under wraps, too,

0:22:560:22:58

so as not to spoil the surprise.

0:22:580:23:00

Becky, do you think because your mum's so outgoing and flamboyant

0:23:030:23:07

and sexy, you sometimes feel like you're in the shadows?

0:23:070:23:10

I've never been used to being centre of attention

0:23:100:23:13

because my mum's there and, you know,

0:23:130:23:15

-if we've gone out together, it's always all about her.

-I wouldn't say

0:23:150:23:20

it intimidates her, it just makes her feel a little bit like

0:23:200:23:23

she'd like to get some of the attention.

0:23:230:23:25

But I'm kind of a bit overpowering. And I don't do it deliberately.

0:23:250:23:28

I don't do it intentionally. It's just the way I am.

0:23:280:23:31

So now our mum and daughter get to see

0:23:360:23:37

their brand new look for the very first time.

0:23:370:23:40

First up, it's Becky.

0:23:400:23:42

Becky just didn't have the confidence

0:23:420:23:44

to step out from behind mum's shadow.

0:23:440:23:46

Always hiding in jeans, t-shirts and tops.

0:23:460:23:50

But now it's a different story.

0:23:500:23:52

Her stunning Titian hair has been layered

0:23:520:23:54

and given some rebel red highlights.

0:23:540:23:57

While this empire line siren frock rocks her curves.

0:23:570:23:59

But will Becky like the look?

0:23:590:24:01

Oh, my God. Oh, my God!

0:24:070:24:11

Hi, Becky. What do you think?

0:24:160:24:19

I absolutely love my hair.

0:24:190:24:23

It is gorgeous. I love the colour.

0:24:230:24:26

I love my make-up.

0:24:260:24:28

Oh, you do?

0:24:280:24:30

I just look completely different.

0:24:300:24:33

Em, "hello" about the figure.

0:24:330:24:37

Yeah, I've got a little waist.

0:24:370:24:39

Did you think you would look like this?

0:24:390:24:41

Not at all. I look gorgeous.

0:24:410:24:44

And now it's Carmen's turn.

0:24:460:24:49

When I first met Carmen, she was stuck in a style timewarp.

0:24:490:24:52

Round about the Spanish Civil War.

0:24:520:24:54

Everything was on display in her attempts to look feminine.

0:24:540:24:57

But it's all change now.

0:25:000:25:02

Carmen's rocking a hot new look with her 50s-inspired dress.

0:25:020:25:06

Which covers up that troublesome bosom.

0:25:060:25:08

I reckon she looks miles better. But what will she make of it?

0:25:080:25:11

Oh, my God!

0:25:210:25:23

Hey, Carmen. How do you feel?

0:25:260:25:28

Yeah, I'm just a little bit shocked, to be honest with you. I'm shocked.

0:25:280:25:32

Erm... I love the hair, I love the style, it is really lovely.

0:25:320:25:36

I love the dress. I don't recognise myself.

0:25:360:25:40

Well, what we tried to do was make you a bit more classy,

0:25:400:25:43

but not too mumsy because that's not your spirit.

0:25:430:25:45

I really love the style.

0:25:450:25:47

I'll definitely be wearing more dresses like this, for sure.

0:25:470:25:50

You don't need to be showing your breasts to look sexy.

0:25:500:25:53

I'm definitely going to change.

0:25:530:25:55

The last time Carmen and Becky saw each other, they looked like this.

0:25:580:26:02

Now they're in for a shock.

0:26:020:26:03

It's finally time for Carmen and Becky to see what we've been up to,

0:26:030:26:07

so, with a lot of excitement and a big dollop of nerves,

0:26:070:26:10

it's time to see what the ladies look like.

0:26:100:26:12

It's time to see who's hotter.

0:26:120:26:14

You look gorgeous!

0:26:400:26:42

Look at your highlights. You look absolutely stunning.

0:26:420:26:46

Hey, Carmen.

0:26:460:26:47

Are you actually speechless for the first time in your life?

0:26:470:26:51

First time ever.

0:26:510:26:54

You had a grungy daughter before, and now she looks like a siren.

0:26:540:26:58

Incredible. She looks like a movie star.

0:26:580:27:01

She looks prettier than a movie star.

0:27:010:27:04

She looks young and she looks more confident.

0:27:040:27:07

I just feel totally different.

0:27:070:27:09

My hair feels like lion.

0:27:090:27:11

I don't know, I just feel great, really confident.

0:27:110:27:14

-Becky, what do you think of your mum?

-I think she looks gorgeous.

0:27:140:27:18

I absolutely love what she's wearing.

0:27:180:27:20

I love her hair. It just softens her features. Everything.

0:27:200:27:24

I think she looks fantastic.

0:27:240:27:25

-You look absolutely beautiful.

-Thank you.

0:27:250:27:29

So, Carmen and Becky headed back to the Highlands,

0:27:300:27:33

happy with their hair, their outfits and, most importantly, each other.

0:27:330:27:38

While Carolene and Alysha, they returned to Chingford, looking lush.

0:27:380:27:42

Minus the hair extensions.

0:27:420:27:44

This was Hotter Than My Daughter,

0:27:440:27:46

where mums don't ban their daughters from wearing hotpants,

0:27:460:27:49

they borrow them. Can I send these to Simon Cowell?

0:27:490:27:51

Liz McClarnon presents a series about mothers and daughters at war over their wardrobes and their relationships.

57-year-old mum Carolene is both a grandma and a glamour model. Daughter Alysha wishes her mum would tone it down, but Carolene wishes Alysha could rediscover her pre-kids hotness.

In the highlands of Scotland, daughter Becky is all about the grunge as a reaction to mum Carmen's cleavage-flaunting ways. Can they meet in the middle?
