POD, you've got your work cut out!

0:00:050:00:07

I'm Ellie Taylor, and if you're a fan of fakery, then listen up

0:00:080:00:11

because "Snog, Marry, Avoid?" is on tour and we're ready to do battle.

0:00:110:00:15

'Our Personal Overhaul Device, or POD for short,

0:00:160:00:19

'has been stripped down and re-booted

0:00:190:00:21

'and has waged war on Britain's biggest fakers.'

0:00:210:00:25

'POD would like to know, how much does it cost to look this cheap?'

0:00:250:00:28

'And nowhere is safe.

0:00:290:00:31

'This time round, POD is on the road.'

0:00:310:00:33

'POD computes, you look orange!'

0:00:330:00:35

I look brown!

0:00:350:00:37

'From Manchester to Newcastle, Liverpool to Cardiff,

0:00:380:00:41

'if it's fake, we'll find it.'

0:00:410:00:43

-BOTH:

-POD, please let us in!

0:00:430:00:45

'POD is also challenging me to try out some local style disasters.'

0:00:460:00:51

SHRIEKS WITH LAUGHTER

0:00:510:00:52

Well, if you can't beat them, I suppose you have to join them.

0:00:550:00:58

'This week, POD's landed in a place

0:00:580:01:00

'where the locals have their own alternative twist on fakery.'

0:01:000:01:04

-GEORDIE ACCENT:

-'That's right, pet! We're in...'

0:01:040:01:06

the North East.

0:01:060:01:07

-Hiya, POD. It's me!

-'Hi, Ellie. Please enter.'

-Thank you.

0:01:170:01:21

-Hello, POD.

-'Hi, Ellie.'

-Guess what this is, guess what this is?

0:01:220:01:26

'It's you, but asleep.'

0:01:260:01:29

No, it's me being the Angel of the North because we're in the North East.

0:01:290:01:32

'Yes, we are. But it's not angels I want you to investigate, Ellie.

0:01:320:01:36

'It's the demons from the dark side of fakery.'

0:01:360:01:39

What, like, sexy Robert Pattinson kind of people?

0:01:420:01:45

'No, Ellie. It's not about boys.'

0:01:450:01:47

Sorry. What, then?

0:01:470:01:49

'The North East has a vibrant alternative scene,

0:01:490:01:52

'but some individuals are taking it too far,

0:01:520:01:55

'caking and encrusting themselves in frightening fakery.'

0:01:550:01:59

I reckon I can do that. I'm quite alternative.

0:01:590:02:01

I've got BOTH my ears pierced. Not a problem. I'm onto it.

0:02:010:02:04

'Coming up on tonight's show,

0:02:060:02:08

'we meet a Welsh Barbie whose look is more plastic drastic

0:02:080:02:11

'than fantastic.'

0:02:110:02:12

My motto is, "If you've got it, flaunt it!"

0:02:140:02:16

'I check out the North East's alternative scene

0:02:160:02:19

'and go cyberpunking.'

0:02:190:02:21

-Wahey! That's mad, that, like!

-Isn't it?

0:02:210:02:24

'And POD meets a yummy mummy

0:02:240:02:26

'whose idea of clothing on a night out would make a stripper blush.'

0:02:260:02:29

I like to wear skirts that are more like a belt.

0:02:300:02:34

So that they show my arse!

0:02:340:02:35

POD's asked me to look into Geordie style,

0:02:370:02:40

and by the look of this bunch, I've got quite a bit to learn.

0:02:400:02:42

-CROWD:

-Hi, POD!

0:02:420:02:43

'I like the alternative look and alternative people.'

0:02:500:02:52

'You get Emos. They're a bit like cyberpunks.'

0:02:520:02:55

'Goths as well, in dark clothing...'

0:02:550:02:57

you know, black eyeliner and stuff.

0:02:570:02:59

What would you consider yourself to be,

0:02:590:03:02

if you were going to pigeonhole yourself?

0:03:020:03:04

I'm not sure. At work, everyone thinks I'm a Goth.

0:03:040:03:06

I think that's just cos I'm the only one with black hair there.

0:03:060:03:08

Newcastle is great. Everybody travels from all over to come here.

0:03:100:03:13

There is a lot of different fashion that is around Newcastle as well,

0:03:130:03:17

so you never see the same thing around.

0:03:170:03:19

I can't imagine snogging you with that!

0:03:230:03:25

Is it not just like sucking a knife and fork?

0:03:250:03:29

So, have you ever had any crazy-coloured hair?

0:03:320:03:34

I've had my hair pretty much any colour you can imagine.

0:03:340:03:37

-Always in the Mohawk?

-Always in a Mohawk. It used to be two foot long!

0:03:370:03:40

My look is Sweet Lolita.

0:03:420:03:45

I like bears and lots and lots and lots of lace.

0:03:450:03:48

'You look like a loo roll cover!'

0:03:480:03:50

At least I'm not in my knickers!

0:03:500:03:52

THEY LAUGH

0:03:520:03:53

That's a change, Freya!

0:03:530:03:54

Next up is a girl from Llandudno.

0:03:570:03:59

If she were a stick of rock,

0:03:590:04:00

she'd have the word "fake" running the whole way through.

0:04:000:04:03

So, can POD lick her into shape?

0:04:030:04:05

Hi, I'm Rachel, otherwise known as Barbie,

0:04:050:04:07

and I'm 19 and I live in Llandudno in Wales.

0:04:070:04:10

# Uh-oh, we're in trouble

0:04:100:04:13

# Something's come along And it's burst our bubble... #

0:04:130:04:16

I'm nicknamed Barbie because of my platinum blonde hair

0:04:160:04:19

and my blue eyes, pink lipstick,

0:04:190:04:23

and cos I just love pink!

0:04:230:04:25

My motto is, "If you've got it, flaunt it!"

0:04:250:04:28

Natural's just not for me.

0:04:280:04:29

Got to have loads of make-up, just look dead girlie,

0:04:290:04:33

plenty of pink blusher, pink lipstick.

0:04:330:04:35

'Wear fake tan every day, darker the better!

0:04:380:04:41

'I wear about three layers in the daytime,

0:04:410:04:43

'but when I go out, it goes up to about six.'

0:04:430:04:45

The more fake tan, the better!

0:04:460:04:48

'She is really, really naturally pretty.'

0:04:510:04:54

And then, as the years have gone on, she just gradually got worse.

0:04:540:04:58

'And I think she just gets a bit carried away.

0:04:580:05:00

'She does not know where to stop.'

0:05:000:05:01

Hiya!

0:05:030:05:05

I'm a trained beauty therapist,

0:05:050:05:06

but it'd be my dream job to eventually own my own salon.

0:05:060:05:10

But for now, I'm just happy practising on my friends.

0:05:100:05:13

Ow!

0:05:130:05:14

'If I had a make-under...

0:05:160:05:17

and I liked the way that I looked naturally,

0:05:170:05:20

I think it'd be a massive confidence boost.

0:05:200:05:22

'I'd be able to feel comfortable,

0:05:220:05:24

'not having to hide it with a fake tan

0:05:240:05:27

'and really heavy make-up.'

0:05:270:05:29

Party time!

0:05:300:05:32

# Come on, Barbie, let's go party!

0:05:320:05:34

# I'm a Barbie girl, In my Barbie world... #

0:05:340:05:37

'I'm a bit of a party animal.

0:05:370:05:39

'Just love going out, having a good time with everyone.

0:05:390:05:42

'On the dancefloor, partying. That's, like, the best thing.'

0:05:420:05:45

Saturday night, I have to be on the town.

0:05:450:05:48

# I'm a Barbie girl... #

0:05:480:05:50

POD, I'm a Barbie girl. in a Barbie world.

0:05:500:05:52

Life is plastic, it's fantastic! Good luck with changing me!

0:05:520:05:56

-Hello, Miss Rachel! How are you?

-Hello. I'm fine, thank you.

0:06:000:06:02

How are these bad boys as well?

0:06:020:06:04

-They're fine.

-They're looking pretty perky!

0:06:040:06:06

-They're girls.

-Oh, sorry!

-They're called The Girls.

-OK. The Girls.

-Yeah.

0:06:060:06:09

-Do you often have them out like that?

-Yeah. All the time.

0:06:090:06:12

So tell me, from head to toe, what's fake.

0:06:120:06:14

I bleach my hair, I've got hair extensions in,

0:06:140:06:16

fake eyelashes, make-up.

0:06:160:06:18

My boobs are real. Fake tan.

0:06:180:06:21

-Do you ruin towels and bedsheets, just by looking at them, I imagine?

-Yeah.

0:06:210:06:25

You wake up in the morning and you've slept there,

0:06:250:06:27

and just brown, everywhere.

0:06:270:06:29

It looks like you've made a bit of a dirty protest or something.

0:06:290:06:32

-I know.

-A sort of sexy look?

-No. No.

0:06:320:06:34

Why do you want to go in for a make-under?

0:06:340:06:36

I just want to see people's reaction, really.

0:06:360:06:39

To see whether, when they look at me, do they think bad, do they think good?

0:06:390:06:42

And it'd be nice to just see what I'd look like differently.

0:06:420:06:46

And whether people'd like it or not. And whether I'd like it.

0:06:460:06:49

You're a beautician, aren't you, by trade?

0:06:490:06:51

-Yeah.

-Now, I've got a little quiz for you,

0:06:510:06:54

to try and work out exactly what kind of beauty therapist you are.

0:06:540:06:57

So, microdermabrasion, or micro-miniskirt?

0:06:570:07:00

Miniskirt.

0:07:000:07:01

-You're rocking the look today.

-Yeah.

0:07:010:07:03

Smooth strip or hairy bush?

0:07:030:07:06

-Smooth.

-Like Barbie.

0:07:060:07:08

-Yes!

-Absolutely.

0:07:080:07:09

Frown lines, or small prick, (Botox).

0:07:090:07:14

-Botox.

-You just seem quite chilled out about going into POD.

0:07:140:07:17

-I think you're quite up for it.

-I am, but I am a little bit nervous.

0:07:170:07:20

I don't know what she's going to do to me.

0:07:200:07:22

All the very best of luck, Rachel. POD awaits.

0:07:220:07:24

POD, good luck with me.

0:07:240:07:27

I am POD, the Personal Overhaul Device.

0:07:340:07:37

-Who are you?

-I'm Barbie.

0:07:370:07:39

-You're Barbie?

-Yeah.

0:07:390:07:41

-What's your real name?

-Rachel.

0:07:410:07:43

Rachel, why do you want to be a Barbie?

0:07:430:07:46

Cos Barbie's pretty, Barbie's cute, Barbie's fun, Barbie's pink.

0:07:460:07:50

-Do you know what Barbie's not?

-What?

0:07:500:07:52

She's not real.

0:07:520:07:54

Exactly, fake!

0:07:540:07:56

How long does it take to put all that sticky slap on your face and body?

0:07:560:08:00

Probably about four, five hours?

0:08:000:08:02

-Are you working at the moment?

-No.

0:08:020:08:05

And why do you think that is?

0:08:050:08:07

I think that if my look was a bit less over the top

0:08:070:08:10

then I might have more chance of owning my own business,

0:08:100:08:13

cos it'd look more professional.

0:08:130:08:15

Shall we find out what the public think your look says about you?

0:08:150:08:20

If we have to.

0:08:200:08:21

Run phase 1 - Public Analysis.

0:08:210:08:24

I asked the public, showing them a picture of you,

0:08:240:08:27

would you want to snog, marry or avoid this girl?

0:08:270:08:31

-What do you think they said?

-Snog.

0:08:310:08:33

I'm definitely going to have to say avoid.

0:08:330:08:37

Way, way too much make-up, and does look a bit like Count Dracula.

0:08:370:08:40

SHE GASPS

0:08:400:08:42

That's not very nice, is it?

0:08:420:08:44

I would avoid her, I think she looks like a Scouse Oompa-Loompa.

0:08:440:08:47

Liverpool girls are pretty.

0:08:470:08:49

Perhaps it's because you're orange

0:08:490:08:51

and have a massive Scouse brow.

0:08:510:08:52

Yes. I love the Scouse brows.

0:08:520:08:54

I'd avoid her, she looks like she's got a bit too much make-up on

0:08:540:08:58

and a bit too chavvy for me.

0:08:580:09:00

I'm not chavvy!

0:09:000:09:03

In fact, 90% of the public - that's nearly everyone -

0:09:030:09:06

said they would avoid you.

0:09:060:09:08

No, I don't know where you're finding these people.

0:09:080:09:11

OK, Rachel, POD computes that you need

0:09:110:09:14

my drastic plastic dolly

0:09:140:09:16

to luscious, living doll make-under.

0:09:160:09:18

Are you ready for the next stage of the make-under process?

0:09:200:09:23

Not really, but there we go.

0:09:230:09:26

-Be brave.

-OK.

0:09:260:09:28

It's a necessary process.

0:09:280:09:29

Run phase two Deep Cleanse.

0:09:290:09:33

Now, I want those scraggly extensions.

0:09:330:09:36

Awww.

0:09:360:09:38

-Let's have them.

-All of them?

0:09:380:09:39

Come on.

0:09:390:09:41

There's one.

0:09:410:09:42

There's another one.

0:09:420:09:44

I wouldn't be a Barbie without hair, would I?

0:09:440:09:46

Come on, Rachel, you can do it.

0:09:460:09:48

This is a big step.

0:09:480:09:50

POD's proud of you.

0:09:500:09:52

You're making me pale now, look at that.

0:09:530:09:56

-And my eyes as well?

-Everything.

0:09:560:09:58

Awww!

0:09:580:09:59

Including those silly Scouse brows.

0:09:590:10:01

How are you feeling at the moment?

0:10:010:10:03

Very nervous. I'm not very Barbie, at all.

0:10:030:10:08

Run the make-under, in three, two, one.

0:10:080:10:12

Oh, my God!

0:10:180:10:20

Oh, my God, I look completely different!

0:10:210:10:23

Oh, it's gorgeous.

0:10:240:10:26

I absolutely love it.

0:10:260:10:29

Oh, my God, I love my hair.

0:10:290:10:31

How does it feel to see yourself as such a young, fresh, natural beauty?

0:10:310:10:34

I'm just in shock, it just looks so nice,

0:10:340:10:36

it's not what I expected at all.

0:10:360:10:39

It just goes to show that I don't need all the make-up

0:10:390:10:42

and everything just to look nice.

0:10:420:10:43

Previously, I asked the public,

0:10:430:10:45

showing them a picture of you with your new look,

0:10:450:10:48

would you want to snog,

0:10:480:10:49

marry or avoid this girl?

0:10:490:10:51

What do you think they said?

0:10:510:10:53

Snog, maybe?

0:10:540:10:55

I'd marry her, cos she looks like

0:10:550:10:57

someone I could introduce my mum to.

0:10:570:10:59

That's cute.

0:10:590:11:00

Yeah, I'd snog her, she's

0:11:000:11:02

quite pretty, she's got nice eyes,

0:11:020:11:04

nice make-up,

0:11:040:11:05

it's quite a natural look.

0:11:050:11:07

That's much better than what

0:11:070:11:08

they said before, isn't it?

0:11:080:11:09

Certainly is!

0:11:090:11:11

Snog, because she's naturally

0:11:110:11:13

pretty, got a great pair of eyes

0:11:130:11:14

and I love the short hair.

0:11:140:11:16

Aww. So, the short hair's better, then.

0:11:160:11:19

It seems to be.

0:11:190:11:20

In fact, a whopping 70% of the public want to snog you.

0:11:200:11:24

And the other 30% wants to marry you.

0:11:240:11:27

Oh, that's good.

0:11:270:11:28

People are much nicer about the way that I look now, aren't they?

0:11:280:11:31

POD computes is that this make-under has been 100% successful.

0:11:310:11:35

Yay!

0:11:350:11:36

-Thank you, Rachel, goodbye.

-Bye!

0:11:360:11:39

'I love my new look.

0:11:420:11:43

'Absolutely love my hair.

0:11:430:11:45

'It's much better short. The colour's gorgeous

0:11:450:11:47

'and I'm dead happy with it.

0:11:470:11:48

'I'm here to meet my best friend, Rosie.'

0:11:480:11:52

I'm well excited, but so nervous as well.

0:11:520:11:54

I can't wait to see what she's going to say.

0:11:540:11:56

Oh, my God!

0:11:580:11:59

You look amazing.

0:11:590:12:01

-Do you like it?

-Yeah, it's so different.

-I know!

0:12:010:12:04

'I was so shocked. I was amazed at how different she looked to this morning'

0:12:040:12:08

before she went in and all the fakery had completely gone

0:12:080:12:11

and she was back to the Rachel that I knew.

0:12:110:12:13

Barbie is dead!

0:12:130:12:14

'Rachel looked really naturally pretty before all the fakery,

0:12:140:12:17

'and I could never really understand why

0:12:170:12:20

'she used to put all the fake tan on'

0:12:200:12:22

and eyelashes and extensions,

0:12:220:12:23

cos she never needed it in the first place.

0:12:230:12:25

I reckon with this look I'll be much more on the lines

0:12:250:12:28

of getting my own business set up and not scaring away clients.

0:12:280:12:32

Yeah, I'd let you pluck my eyebrows now.

0:12:320:12:35

Rosie's reaction was much better than I thought.

0:12:350:12:37

She loves it and I'm so pleased.

0:12:370:12:38

-Do you think you'll stick?

-Yeah. 100%.

0:12:380:12:41

-You're not going to put your extensions back in?

-No.

0:12:410:12:43

-I can't, it's too short anyway!

-Promise.

0:12:430:12:45

-Pinky promise.

-Good.

0:12:450:12:47

POD, thanks so much, I love my look.

0:12:470:12:49

You'll be pleased to know that Barbie is gone.

0:12:490:12:51

My investigations into the alternative scene in Newcastle

0:12:540:12:57

have thrown up tattoos, which I don't like,

0:12:570:13:00

piercings, really not for me,

0:13:000:13:01

and Mohicans, and I don't think I can pull one of those off.

0:13:010:13:04

So this will have to do.

0:13:040:13:05

Let's see what the people of Newcastle make of cyber Ellie.

0:13:060:13:10

It's not just a look.

0:13:120:13:13

Oh, no, the neons reflect cyberpunk's electric lifestyle.

0:13:130:13:17

Do you overdress like this, then?

0:13:170:13:19

I do when I'm going out, more than anything.

0:13:190:13:22

So is the outfit right? Have I done it right?

0:13:220:13:24

I think it's fantastic, I absolutely love it.

0:13:240:13:26

Do you know what I'm meant to be, what kind of person I am?

0:13:260:13:29

A mental person?

0:13:310:13:32

Chaps, chaps!

0:13:330:13:35

Hi! Stop and talk to me.

0:13:350:13:37

Do you like what I'm wearing?

0:13:380:13:40

-PASSER-BY:

-Love it!

-Thank you!

-They love it apparently.

0:13:400:13:43

Do you love what I am wearing?

0:13:430:13:44

It's a bit out there.

0:13:440:13:45

You look like you just fell out of a '90s rave.

0:13:450:13:47

-Wahey, that's mad, that, like!

-Isn't it!

0:13:510:13:54

It's like a slinky!

0:13:540:13:55

SHE LAUGHS

0:13:550:13:56

Careful, that was my eye!

0:13:560:13:57

-Play with it, they're real good.

-Oh, right, OK.

0:13:570:13:59

-How fun is that?

-Yeah...

0:13:590:14:01

Right, do you want to stick your finger in?

0:14:010:14:03

That feels nice, doesn't it?

0:14:060:14:07

-Oh, God!

-Now you're mine!

0:14:070:14:09

What's your favourite bit?

0:14:160:14:18

-Er, the fluffies.

-They're good, aren't they?

0:14:180:14:20

Is that what they're called?

0:14:200:14:22

I think those are the best part.

0:14:220:14:24

I tell you what the best thing is about this outfit -

0:14:240:14:27

due to the holes, if you get an itchy arse...

0:14:270:14:29

-Not a problem.

-No worries, straight in there.

0:14:290:14:31

Next up is a yummy mummy who's a slave to fakery.

0:14:340:14:37

Can POD save her from a life of slap,

0:14:370:14:39

or has she simply gone too far?

0:14:390:14:41

-VOICE OF SIGNER:

-A lot of people say I'm slutty.

0:14:500:14:52

I like to wear low-cut tops, cos I've had a boob job.

0:14:530:14:57

I like to show my legs off.

0:14:580:15:00

I can't leave the house without my hair extensions, my false nails,

0:15:010:15:05

my eyelashes, my fake tan,

0:15:050:15:07

cos I want to look glamorous.

0:15:070:15:09

At first I was a little tomboy when I was growing up,

0:15:100:15:14

and then my best friend, she changed me, you know.

0:15:140:15:17

"Come on, start dressing up a little bit more, put make-up on,

0:15:170:15:20

"look more girlie."

0:15:200:15:21

So, then, I think from being a tomboy,

0:15:230:15:25

I changed completely to being slaggy.

0:15:250:15:27

-VOICE OF SIGNER:

-She looks like a tart.

0:15:310:15:33

I've tried to say, "Come on, control it, you know,

0:15:330:15:36

"settle down a little bit,

0:15:360:15:37

"you're a mum now."

0:15:370:15:38

CHEERING

0:15:380:15:41

-VOICE OF SIGNER:

-I like to wear skirts

0:15:490:15:51

that are more like a belt.

0:15:510:15:53

So that they show my arse.

0:15:530:15:55

And my front, I'm not bothered.

0:15:550:15:57

VOICE OF SIGNER: It's awful.

0:15:590:16:00

It's embarrassing most of the time. But if we go out,

0:16:000:16:03

you know, it's too much.

0:16:030:16:04

I want POD to change me,

0:16:060:16:08

because I'm looking a bit sluttish at the moment.

0:16:080:16:10

I really want to be more mature,

0:16:110:16:13

because I'm a mum now with two boys, and I get a lot of attention.

0:16:130:16:17

Really, I want to be changed. Please?

0:16:180:16:20

So I'm just about to meet Holly and her signer, Babs.

0:16:240:16:26

Me and Holly are going to have sex on the beach, but Babs

0:16:260:16:29

is only allowed an orange juice, just in case she slurs her signing.

0:16:290:16:32

-Hello, Babs.

-Hello.

0:16:350:16:38

Hello, how are you?

0:16:380:16:40

Tell me what brings you to POD.

0:16:400:16:42

Because I've got two boys,

0:16:420:16:44

and I want to stop embarrassing my little boys,

0:16:440:16:47

other people looking at me, I want

0:16:470:16:49

to change myself for the children.

0:16:490:16:50

And do you think in some way your quite extreme look

0:16:500:16:53

is to compensate, maybe, for you being deaf?

0:16:530:16:56

Kind of, because if I was a hearing person

0:16:560:17:00

I would probably just attract different men, make new friends.

0:17:000:17:04

So, why do you think you crave so much attention, then?

0:17:040:17:06

Not just men look at me, girls look at me, also,

0:17:090:17:11

so I feel good, cos they're jealous of me.

0:17:110:17:13

So, do you like winding up the other girls, then?

0:17:130:17:16

Yeah, of course, cos their boyfriends look at me and I'm a bit of a flirt.

0:17:160:17:19

You're naughty! That's so deliberate!

0:17:190:17:22

So, good luck to you both.

0:17:220:17:25

-POD awaits.

-Nervous!

0:17:250:17:27

I am POD, the Personal Overhaul Device.

0:17:330:17:36

Who are you?

0:17:360:17:38

Hi, I'm Holly, I'm 24

0:17:400:17:42

and I'm from Leeds.

0:17:420:17:43

Hello, Holly.

0:17:430:17:44

Is this your mum with you?

0:17:440:17:46

No, it's not my mum,

0:17:460:17:47

it's my friend.

0:17:470:17:49

She's helping me to interpret.

0:17:490:17:51

POD computes that you use your hands very cleverly to communicate.

0:17:510:17:55

Why do you use them so sloppily when applying your make-up?

0:17:550:17:58

My make-up's great!

0:17:590:18:01

You're a computer, how do you know how to put perfect make-up on?

0:18:010:18:03

POD is the world's one and only make-under computer.

0:18:030:18:06

I know everything about natural beauty.

0:18:060:18:09

Why have you got hotpants on?

0:18:090:18:12

To show off my legs.

0:18:120:18:13

Pod computes that your legs would look much nicer

0:18:130:18:16

if we could actually see them.

0:18:160:18:17

Instead, it looks like you're covered in net curtains.

0:18:170:18:21

It looks modern, it's fashionable -

0:18:210:18:23

I like the look I have.

0:18:230:18:24

And what else isn't real about you?

0:18:240:18:27

Hair, my nails, my eyelashes,

0:18:270:18:32

fake tan, and false boobs.

0:18:320:18:35

Well, everything is going apart from the boobs.

0:18:350:18:38

Run phase one - Public Analysis.

0:18:380:18:41

POD asked members of the public

0:18:410:18:44

if they wanted to snog,

0:18:440:18:45

marry or avoid you.

0:18:450:18:47

What do you think they said?

0:18:470:18:49

Snog.

0:18:510:18:52

I'd avoid her,

0:18:520:18:54

she looks too much trouble for me.

0:18:540:18:56

Too much trouble over my piercings, my earrings?

0:18:580:19:01

Is that what you're meaning?

0:19:010:19:02

Avoid. She looks a bit too much like Madonna.

0:19:020:19:05

Too much gold, skin-tight, looks about 40.

0:19:050:19:09

Not my type at all.

0:19:090:19:10

I look 40?! Oh, thank you very much(!)

0:19:100:19:14

60% of the public wanted to avoid you.

0:19:140:19:16

35% would snog you,

0:19:160:19:18

and only 5% would marry you.

0:19:180:19:21

5%, is that all? Oh, no, never.

0:19:220:19:25

Pod computes that a make-under will turn you

0:19:250:19:28

from a moron magnet to a sexy, yummy mummy.

0:19:280:19:31

Are you ready for the next stage of the make-under process?

0:19:320:19:36

Yes.

0:19:360:19:38

Run phase two Deep Cleanse.

0:19:380:19:41

Remove all of your fakery.

0:19:430:19:45

When I'm out of here

0:19:460:19:48

I'm putting these straight back on.

0:19:480:19:50

I'll incinerate them first.

0:19:500:19:51

Aladdin!

0:19:590:20:00

-VOICE OF SIGNER:

-Awful! Oh, I don't like this.

0:20:050:20:07

I don't like how I look like this.

0:20:070:20:09

Let's have a look at that pad.

0:20:090:20:11

OK, Holly. I am now going to run the make-under

0:20:130:20:16

in three, two, one...

0:20:160:20:20

-Oh, my God!

-Oh, my God!

0:20:270:20:30

What do you think?

0:20:300:20:32

-VOICE OF SIGNER:

-I feel naked without all my false bits on.

0:20:320:20:35

I don't feel younger like this.

0:20:370:20:40

I do like the look, but I think it's a bit plain for me, personally.

0:20:400:20:43

POD computes that you look classy.

0:20:430:20:47

I'm not too keen on my hair.

0:20:470:20:49

What is it about your hair that you don't like?

0:20:490:20:51

-The bun in the middle.

-What do you think your boys would say?

0:20:510:20:55

They'd probably laugh over my head with my hair.

0:20:550:20:57

It's possible my cat could even sleep on my head.

0:20:570:21:00

Is this a look your boys could be proud of?

0:21:020:21:05

Yes, I think they would be very proud of me.

0:21:050:21:08

But I think the clothes are still a bit old for me.

0:21:100:21:13

POD computes that you look classy.

0:21:130:21:15

What do you think the public will say about you?

0:21:150:21:19

"Divorced." I'd get a "divorced."

0:21:190:21:22

Marry me, I hope. I'd hope somebody would marry me.

0:21:220:21:25

-Shall we find out?

-Yes, OK.

0:21:250:21:28

I would snog her. I think she looks nice. I think she looks natural.

0:21:280:21:31

I'd marry her, because I think she looks very homely and sophisticated.

0:21:310:21:35

I would snog her because she looks classy

0:21:350:21:38

and she has that natural beauty.

0:21:380:21:40

Previously, 60% of the public wanted to avoid you.

0:21:400:21:45

35% wanted to snog you and only 5% wanted to marry you.

0:21:450:21:49

Now 80% of the public want to snog you

0:21:490:21:53

and 10% want to marry you.

0:21:530:21:55

Oh, really? Oh, that's nice.

0:21:580:22:00

It's been a great pleasure meeting you, Holly.

0:22:000:22:02

Nice to meet you too, POD.

0:22:020:22:05

-Goodbye.

-Goodbye!

0:22:050:22:08

Holly's about to reveal her stylish new look.

0:22:130:22:15

Her sister and best friend are in for a right shock.

0:22:150:22:18

-FRIEND GASPS VOICE OF SIGNER:

-How do I look?

0:22:220:22:25

That's nice!

0:22:280:22:30

Oh, my gosh!

0:22:300:22:32

Oh, I'm all emotional, look.

0:22:320:22:36

Stop it, give me a hug. Come here. Come here.

0:22:360:22:39

Oh, you look like a lady. You look like a lady.

0:22:430:22:46

Oh, I'm too emotional.

0:22:460:22:49

VOICE OF SIGNER: Wow. What an impact.

0:22:490:22:51

I've known my best friend from being so young and growing up together.

0:22:540:22:57

She's been a tomboy, she's been sporty,

0:22:570:23:00

a teenage girl who changed her clothes, lots of different things,

0:23:000:23:03

but I've never seen her so natural.

0:23:030:23:05

I'm crying on telly! Stop, you're making me all emotional.

0:23:090:23:12

-VOICE OF SIGNER:

-She looks beautiful.

0:23:130:23:15

When her children see her at school,

0:23:150:23:16

they'll be, "Natural mummy!" So it's better for the kids as well.

0:23:160:23:19

Thank you, POD, for helping me change my new look.

0:23:220:23:26

I like it, but I won't get rid of my hair extensions.

0:23:260:23:30

We'll find out later in the show if Holly has kept her new look.

0:23:300:23:34

Earlier, we met Rachel,

0:23:370:23:38

who was a complete Barbie girl until POD made her under,

0:23:380:23:42

so has she kept her natural look

0:23:420:23:43

or gone back to her plastic fantastic ways?

0:23:430:23:45

You look a little bit different to when I last saw you.

0:23:450:23:49

-How are you?

-I'm good, thank you.

0:23:490:23:50

-Your hair's shorter...

-Yeah.

0:23:500:23:52

But I don't think that's the colour POD gave you, is it?

0:23:520:23:55

No, I've gone lighter.

0:23:550:23:56

-Was it not bold enough?

-I did like it, but yeah, it wasn't...

0:23:560:24:00

I didn't feel blonde, even though it was.

0:24:000:24:02

You still look a little bit orange and I can see some sort of orange tide marks

0:24:020:24:06

knocking around your hands. Did POD teach you nothing?

0:24:060:24:09

-She did, but only one layer of tan this time.

-Last time we met,

0:24:090:24:12

you were telling me about how you were a beauty therapist

0:24:120:24:15

and how you quite wanted your own salon, but you didn't think

0:24:150:24:18

your look, the old one, was going to help you do that.

0:24:180:24:20

What do you think about the new version of you?

0:24:200:24:23

Yeah, it's much more toned down

0:24:230:24:25

and I think a little bit more approachable to people

0:24:250:24:27

-so yeah, definitely.

-So, Rachel, if you had a final message for POD,

0:24:270:24:31

-what would you say to her?

-I'd say, "Thanks, POD,

0:24:310:24:34

"for giving me the confidence to go on with my ambitions

0:24:340:24:37

"and yeah, make-under success."

0:24:370:24:39

Brilliant. Can I get a cheap discount on a bikini wax?

0:24:390:24:41

-Of course.

-Excellent.

0:24:410:24:43

As darkness descends, POD meets Newcastle's final fashion offenders.

0:24:490:24:53

-BOTH:

-POD, please let us in.

0:24:530:24:55

What on earth are you?

0:24:550:24:57

-We are drag queens, and we're fabulous!

-Mm-hmm.

0:24:570:25:00

POD computes you look like an insane cockatoo.

0:25:020:25:04

Thanks, POD.

0:25:040:25:06

-Please describe your style.

-I'm shiny and I'm black.

0:25:080:25:12

But so is a bit of coal.

0:25:120:25:13

What are those tentacles sticking out of your head?

0:25:150:25:18

Dread falls.

0:25:180:25:19

Dread what?

0:25:190:25:20

They're dread falls, POD.

0:25:200:25:22

More like "dread-ful!"

0:25:220:25:24

It looks like you got it from a dead body.

0:25:260:25:29

-Watch what you're saying, POD, cos we're Geordie girls!

-Aye! Aye!

0:25:290:25:33

Earlier, Holly was transformed before our very eyes,

0:25:360:25:39

but did she keep her natural look? Let's go and see.

0:25:390:25:42

Now, I'm going to be honest,

0:25:420:25:44

there's not a massively drastic change

0:25:440:25:49

apart from, you're wearing quite more clothes than you were before!

0:25:490:25:53

-VOICE OF SIGNER:

-Yeah, that's right, Ellie.

0:25:530:25:56

And what else have you kept?

0:25:560:25:58

Just a little bit of make-up, but I've got rid of all the fake things.

0:25:590:26:02

And what about the hair? Because that's much shorter.

0:26:020:26:05

-You haven't got the extensions in.

-Just my natural hair, that's right.

0:26:050:26:08

So have you given the extensions up? For good?

0:26:080:26:12

-No, no, no! Not for good.

-So what do the kids think of it?

0:26:120:26:17

Really happy. They feel really better for me.

And do you think you're going to keep this more natural look?

0:26:200:26:22

Yes. Hopefully, I'll improve and get a bit more ladylike.

0:26:220:26:28

Are you really pleased that you went in to see POD, then?

0:26:280:26:30

Yes. Yeah, because if I didn't meet POD,

0:26:300:26:34

I would never have known I could ever look like this,

0:26:340:26:37

-in a different way.

-Brilliant.

0:26:370:26:39

Thank you, Holly. And Babs. You can have a drink now.

0:26:390:26:43

Howdy!

0:26:460:26:48

Hello, Ellie. Come in.

0:26:480:26:49

Thank you!

0:26:490:26:51

POD, I'm so glad to be back in these clothes.

0:26:540:26:56

Were you getting out of your clothes, Ellie?

0:26:560:26:58

I was dressed up as a cyberpunk.

0:26:580:27:00

Oh, my Lordy! I couldn't even come in here,

0:27:000:27:03

I thought you would have overloaded or something.

0:27:030:27:06

What have you learnt from your trip to the North East?

0:27:060:27:08

I've learnt that it's not all about the girls who go out in their little dresses with no coats on.

0:27:080:27:13

There's a massive alternative scene

0:27:130:27:14

that I don't think people know about.

0:27:140:27:16

Well, POD would certainly like to see more of them.

0:27:160:27:19

No way! I am all punked out.

0:27:190:27:21

You, madam, can POD off.

In the North East, Ellie tries the cybergoth look, and POD goes into overdrive with two mega makeunders. First up is Rachel, a Barbie lookalike from Llandudno who isn't afraid to wear a bikini on the beach in all weathers. Next is Holly, a deaf single mum who describes her look as 'slutty' and wants to look respectable for the school run.

Can POD turn them both back into natural beauties?
