I'm Ellie Taylor, Snog Marry Avoid? is back on the road

0:00:050:00:08

and POD is taking no prisoners.

0:00:080:00:11

Why are you dressing like a streetwalker?

0:00:110:00:13

I think that's a bit cheeky, POD!

0:00:130:00:15

If you're brassy and your look is trashy, hold on to your lashes,

0:00:150:00:19

because there's nowhere to hide.

0:00:190:00:21

POD, the world's only makeunder computer, is on tour.

0:00:210:00:25

She's booting up, hacking off and firewalling the country's

0:00:250:00:28

most unwanted fakers.

0:00:280:00:31

Why do you look like an insane dolly?

0:00:310:00:33

Well, you're only young once!

0:00:330:00:35

From Birmingham to Bromley, Cardiff to Liverpool, POD's sensors

0:00:350:00:38

can detect the worst worshippers of all things artificial.

0:00:380:00:42

Families across Britain have had enough of the fakery that has

0:00:430:00:46

stolen their sons and daughters, their brothers and sisters.

0:00:460:00:50

-CHANTING:

-Down with fakery! Down with fakery!

0:00:500:00:54

And I've accepted POD's mission to uncover the latest phoney fads

0:00:550:00:58

in each city and expose their ridiculousness.

0:00:580:01:02

Whoo, whoo!

0:01:020:01:04

-If you saw me walking down the street...?

-It's ridiculous.

0:01:040:01:07

Let the battle against fakery commence. This is Snog Marry Avoid?

0:01:070:01:13

This week, we're back where girls like to take a Lambeth Walk

0:01:240:01:27

wearing as little as a fake tan and a smile.

0:01:270:01:31

And their Bristol cities are as subtle as the Shard.

0:01:310:01:34

Sometimes, just as pointy.

0:01:340:01:36

But it ain't worth getting your Alan Whickers in a twist.

0:01:360:01:39

Catch yourself a sherbet dab.

0:01:390:01:40

And join us for a butcher's at the local fakery, because POD's

0:01:400:01:44

sensors detect artificial overload on an epic scale.

0:01:440:01:48

We're back in Bromley and southeast London.

0:01:480:01:51

Hi, POD.

0:01:520:01:53

-Hello, Ellie.

-Wagwan, sister?

0:01:550:01:57

Er, are you feeling all right, Ellie?

0:01:570:01:59

I am bare good, bruv.

0:01:590:02:01

I have no idea what you're talking about.

0:02:010:02:03

Nor do I, to be honest, but it's how the kids speak.

0:02:030:02:06

Because we're in southeast London, aren't we?

0:02:060:02:08

Do they look as fake as they sound?

0:02:080:02:10

Hmm, there's quite a lot of fakers round here.

0:02:100:02:12

Fair to middling, I'd say.

0:02:120:02:14

It sounds like we've got our work cut out.

0:02:140:02:16

I think you might be right. Toodles. Brap, brap!

0:02:160:02:19

Coming up on tonight's show -

0:02:190:02:21

POD meets a girl making a right exhibition of herself.

0:02:210:02:25

I think I am piece of art, but quite abstract.

0:02:250:02:29

I come face-to-face with fakery. Literally.

0:02:290:02:32

Do you need glasses?

0:02:320:02:34

Do YOU need glasses?

0:02:340:02:35

And we meet a lady who goes clubbing in her underwear.

0:02:350:02:39

It's got peepholes for your nipples and it's crotchless.

0:02:390:02:42

It's often said the streets of London are paved with gold,

0:02:490:02:53

but round here, they seem more caked in fake.

0:02:530:02:55

BOTH: We're in southeast London!

0:02:550:02:58

I see a lot of girls with very short shorts when it's snowing outside.

0:02:580:03:02

They're basically wearing nothing, and it's winter. Are they crazy?

0:03:020:03:06

Is there a lot of fakery in Bromley, in the southeast?

0:03:100:03:12

Yeah, there can be quite a lot of fakery.

0:03:120:03:14

On a Saturday night, what's a classic sort of clubbing outfit?

0:03:140:03:18

The highest heels you can get, lots of fake tan.

0:03:180:03:21

There's no need to be the colour of mahogany.

0:03:210:03:23

Laura...

0:03:230:03:25

Yes, POD?

0:03:250:03:26

..why aren't you orange like your friend?

0:03:260:03:28

I'm not orange! Don't call me orange. I'm brown!

0:03:280:03:32

It's brown, not orange. Look at me!

0:03:320:03:34

Now for a girl who's taken a trip on the Orient Express,

0:03:390:03:42

but there's nothing speedy about her fakery.

0:03:420:03:45

Hi, my name is Jessica. I'm 17, and I'm from the moon.

0:03:450:03:49

Erm, wait a minute, I'm not really. I'm from London!

0:03:490:03:52

My style is called Gyaru, but I call it gal because it's a lot shorter.

0:03:550:03:58

My style is straight from the streets of Japan.

0:03:580:04:01

Girls are known for pretty much just wearing what they want.

0:04:010:04:04

I think the most important thing is maybe the make-up and hair.

0:04:040:04:08

I think that I am a piece of art, but quite abstract.

0:04:080:04:11

I think Jessica's dress sense is pretty weird,

0:04:110:04:14

to be pretty honest with you.

0:04:140:04:15

When I was in school, I tried to look like other people.

0:04:150:04:19

And even then, no-one really liked me,

0:04:190:04:21

so I sort of thought, why am I trying to please everyone else?

0:04:210:04:23

I do worry sometimes about the attention she gets

0:04:230:04:27

because of the way she dresses.

0:04:270:04:29

My fakery is contact lenses, eyebrows, hair,

0:04:290:04:32

top and bottom eyelashes, contoured nose, cheeks, skin, lips.

0:04:320:04:37

Probably my whole face is fake.

0:04:370:04:39

I use the white pencil to make the arch of my nose look smaller.

0:04:400:04:44

I'm not sure how much it actually works.

0:04:440:04:47

I decided to pluck my eyebrows.

0:04:470:04:49

I mean, my mum nearly cried a river when I did it.

0:04:490:04:51

The hair's all over the place,

0:04:510:04:53

and it's bad enough with the dog's fur all over the place.

0:04:530:04:57

I started dressing up when I was 13 or 14.

0:04:570:05:00

I thought it could be just a phase she was going through.

0:05:000:05:04

I thought, probably, she'd have grown out of it by now, but she hasn't.

0:05:040:05:07

My look is really, really, really important to me.

0:05:070:05:10

I think, if I wasn't a girl, I would be a bit lost.

0:05:100:05:14

Hey, POD! My message for you is that it's not just my look that's crazy,

0:05:140:05:19

it's my personality, so you might need some paracetamol.

0:05:190:05:22

# Turning Japanese I think I'm turning Japanese... #

0:05:220:05:25

I'm not actually. It's Jessica.

0:05:250:05:27

I wonder if I can spot her in this cafe in Bromley?

0:05:270:05:29

Oh, yeah, I think that might be her.

0:05:290:05:33

-Konnichiwa, Jessica. How are you?

-I'm fine, thanks.

0:05:330:05:36

-You look amazing.

-Thank you.

0:05:360:05:38

Tell me what your look is.

0:05:380:05:40

Er, my look is a style from Japan called Gyaru,

0:05:400:05:43

and it's all about focusing on man-made things and being yourself.

0:05:430:05:47

When I found out about Gyaru, I found out about the oldest form

0:05:470:05:50

called Ganguro girls.

0:05:500:05:52

Ganguro style, yeah!

0:05:520:05:53

-MIMICS GANGNAM STYLE:

-# Do-do-do-do-do-do... #

0:05:530:05:56

That's different.

0:05:560:05:57

-JESS LAUGHS

-I tried.

-That's Korea!

0:05:570:06:00

OK, I've got a little quiz for you to determine

0:06:000:06:03

whether you're more Japanese or more British.

0:06:030:06:07

What do you feel like in your heart?

0:06:070:06:09

I think I'm a person of the world.

0:06:090:06:12

I think, for tax purposes,

0:06:120:06:13

-you probably need to anchor yourself somewhere.

-Yeah!

0:06:130:06:17

-Sushi or sausage and mash?

-Sushi.

0:06:170:06:19

-Really?

-I don't like sausages.

0:06:190:06:21

Geisha girl or Chelsea girl?

0:06:210:06:23

Just because I despise the whole Chelsea thing, geisha.

0:06:230:06:27

Ladylike hand fan or hot water bottle?

0:06:270:06:30

Hot water bottle.

0:06:300:06:32

I could do with one of those right now, actually!

0:06:320:06:34

-Right, I think the time has come for you to get into POD.

-Whoo!

0:06:340:06:37

Come on, let's go!

0:06:370:06:39

Get in there!

0:06:410:06:43

Hey, POD, let me in!

0:06:430:06:45

I am POD, the Personal Overhaul Device. Who are you?

0:06:520:06:56

Hi, my name's Jessica.

0:06:560:06:58

Why do you look so strange?

0:06:580:07:00

I love to look strange. It's great!

0:07:000:07:03

POD computes that you are a very pretty young girl.

0:07:030:07:06

Aww, thank you, POD.

0:07:060:07:08

So why have you made yourself look like an old-fashioned dolly

0:07:080:07:11

that's sort of half melted in a fire?

0:07:110:07:14

Oh, POD, you're so mean! Why would you say that to me?

0:07:140:07:19

Jessica, what's going on with your hair?

0:07:190:07:22

I bought a wig and I cut it myself and then I styled it.

0:07:220:07:26

POD computes it looks like a bird's nest.

0:07:260:07:28

Hey, POD, that's not exactly funny, is it?

0:07:280:07:32

Come on, be realistic!

0:07:320:07:34

What's wrong with having a couple of pheasants living in your hair?

0:07:340:07:37

Actually, it looks quite cute.

0:07:370:07:38

Perhaps they are in love.

0:07:380:07:40

They're in love because of my amazing hair!

0:07:400:07:43

I'm taking them out.

0:07:430:07:44

It's pheasant season, and someone could blow your head off.

0:07:440:07:47

-SHE LAUGHS

-Oi!

0:07:470:07:50

Jessica, it is now time to run your public analysis.

0:07:500:07:53

Oh, no!

0:07:530:07:55

I asked the public, would you want to snog, marry or avoid this girl?

0:07:590:08:03

What do you think they said?

0:08:030:08:05

Erm, I think they'll want to marry me.

0:08:050:08:07

'I would avoid at all costs. Too much high-maintenance for me.'

0:08:070:08:12

Oh, what a drama queen!

0:08:120:08:13

'I would avoid her, because she looks like she has

0:08:130:08:16

'far too much make-up on and she looks a bit wacky.'

0:08:160:08:18

Oh, well, they're a bit boring, obviously.

0:08:180:08:21

'I'd avoid her as she's got a little too much make-up on.

0:08:210:08:23

'She looks like a clown to me.'

0:08:230:08:25

Aw, they're just so uncultured. Poor them.

0:08:250:08:28

My heart bleeds.

0:08:280:08:30

100% of the public we asked said they would avoid you.

0:08:300:08:34

Oh, no!

0:08:340:08:35

POD computes that you are a multi-coloured Gyaru gatecrasher

0:08:350:08:39

and you need my...

0:08:390:08:41

Hmm, that was pretty creative. I'll give you that one, POD.

0:08:450:08:48

Well, thanks. It is now time to run the deep cleanse.

0:08:480:08:52

Whoo-hoo!

0:08:520:08:54

Amazing! I can see your head.

0:08:580:09:01

Now, please put on your deep cleanse uniform

0:09:010:09:04

and hand over those eyelashes.

0:09:040:09:06

My babies!

0:09:060:09:08

-You can do it, Jessica.

-I can do it.

0:09:080:09:10

OK, Jessica, finally, remove all your make-up with the wipes.

0:09:130:09:17

They look like used napkins after an Indian takeaway.

0:09:180:09:21

Damn.

0:09:210:09:23

Run the makeunder in...

0:09:230:09:25

No!

0:09:360:09:37

Have a good look, Jessica.

0:09:370:09:39

Seriously?

0:09:390:09:40

POD computes you now look like a stunning natural beauty,

0:09:400:09:44

and your hair does not look like there are things living in it.

0:09:440:09:47

It looks horrible.

0:09:470:09:48

How do you feel about this look?

0:09:480:09:50

I think the look is nice, but it would look nice on someone else.

0:09:500:09:54

You look so pretty.

0:09:540:09:56

But it's not me. I don't feel comfortable.

0:09:560:09:59

Previously, when I asked the public what they thought about your look,

0:09:590:10:02

what did they say?

0:10:020:10:04

They wanted to avoid me, and I was happy about that.

0:10:040:10:07

What do you think they said this time?

0:10:070:10:10

Marry?

0:10:100:10:12

Let's see.

0:10:120:10:13

OK, POD.

0:10:130:10:14

'I would snog her, because she's not too over-the-top

0:10:140:10:17

'and she dresses really well.'

0:10:170:10:18

If they say so.

0:10:180:10:20

'I would marry her because she's quite natural and very pretty.'

0:10:200:10:23

Aw, aren't they adorable?

0:10:230:10:25

'I'd snog her, because she doesn't have too much make-up on,

0:10:250:10:28

'she's quite natural-looking, she seems like a nice girl.'

0:10:280:10:31

In fact, 40% of the public now want to marry you.

0:10:310:10:35

And the other 60% want to snog you.

0:10:350:10:38

That means you've gone from 100% avoid to 100% snog or marry.

0:10:380:10:43

Hmm. I see.

0:10:430:10:46

Jessica, POD computes that even though you hate this look,

0:10:460:10:48

-you look utterly stunning.

-Aw, thank you, POD.

0:10:480:10:52

How do you feel about showing this look to your friends and family?

0:10:520:10:55

I feel OK about it.

0:10:550:10:57

Initiate Podwalk.

0:10:570:10:59

The Podwalk has been beamed into a Bromley bar.

0:11:010:11:03

What will Jessica's friends and family think

0:11:030:11:05

of her radical new look?

0:11:050:11:08

It feels like a new experience and pretty exciting all in one,

0:11:080:11:11

so it's like loads of emotions. I feel like I'm going to explode.

0:11:110:11:14

CHEERING

0:11:140:11:17

Come and say hello to your mum and dad.

0:11:310:11:33

I'm guessing, by your reasonably sulky face, that you DON'T like it?

0:11:390:11:45

I like it, but it's not really for me.

0:11:450:11:47

You came down like, "Hi-i-i!

0:11:470:11:50

"I'm here, whatever!" I think you're beautiful. You look so cute.

0:11:510:11:55

Mum and Dad, what are you thinking?

0:11:550:11:57

She looks lovely like that. I can see her natural face and natural eyes.

0:11:570:12:01

-She's got lovely-coloured eyes.

-Dad, do you think she looks classy?

0:12:010:12:05

Yeah, she looks good.

0:12:050:12:06

Do you think, Jessica, you're going to carry this look off?

0:12:060:12:10

Hmm, maybe with some major alterations.

0:12:100:12:14

I think you look lovely. I can't wait to see you in a few weeks.

0:12:140:12:17

-OK.

-See what you've created.

0:12:170:12:20

POD computes Jessica has been transformed from a fake

0:12:200:12:23

Japanese artwork to a genuine priceless masterpiece.

0:12:230:12:26

It's a bit of shock all at once, cos it's, like, a whole thing.

0:12:260:12:30

There's nothing about me before that's there any more.

0:12:300:12:33

I think Jessica's look is very nice. The outfit suits her.

0:12:330:12:37

It shows off her good features.

0:12:370:12:39

She does like the actual haircut,

0:12:390:12:41

but whether she keeps the colour, we'll see.

0:12:410:12:44

The girls and boys of southeast London take their look so seriously

0:12:490:12:53

they want it reflected on their mush.

0:12:530:12:56

These cheeky geeks have fakery on their face.

0:12:560:12:59

Girls in southeast London kind of do that geek-chic look when they go out.

0:12:590:13:03

I've seen a lot of the geek-chic glasses at the moment,

0:13:030:13:05

with no glass in them.

0:13:050:13:07

Geek-chic glasses. I've only just heard of them,

0:13:070:13:09

but I think they sound really cool.

0:13:090:13:11

Hiya, POD!

0:13:140:13:16

Ellie, this is an emergency recall.

0:13:160:13:19

My sensors detect gross misuse of eyewear,

0:13:190:13:21

and I need you to investigate.

0:13:210:13:23

Oh, like the Deirdre Barlow ones?

0:13:230:13:25

"Ken, stop having affairs. You're 109!"

0:13:250:13:29

Yes, exactly. They look awful.

0:13:290:13:31

What exactly do they look like?

0:13:310:13:33

Ooh!

0:13:330:13:34

Blimey, they are pretty strong. I feel something coming over me.

0:13:340:13:38

I feel exactly like I need to go to the chartered accountants' meeting.

0:13:380:13:42

Very interesting lecture on fiscal policy ahoy. Bye!

0:13:420:13:45

I wanted a really cool accessory.

0:13:500:13:51

I was going to get a baby, but I just want the glasses.

0:13:510:13:54

What kind of person do you think would wear glasses like these?

0:13:560:13:58

Random attention seekers, probably.

0:13:580:14:01

-If you saw me walking down the street...?

-It was ridiculous.

0:14:010:14:04

-Just out and out ridiculous?

-Out and out ridiculous.

0:14:040:14:06

Do you need glasses?

0:14:060:14:08

Do YOU need glasses?

0:14:080:14:10

No, I don't see them, because of my glasses.

0:14:100:14:12

I don't know if you noticed, I'm wearing glasses.

0:14:120:14:14

If I put these on, what do you think of them?

0:14:140:14:18

Quite attractive.

0:14:180:14:19

-What's attractive?

-They suit you.

-Do they?

-Yeah.

0:14:210:14:23

-It brings attention to...

-To what? Tell me.

0:14:230:14:26

-I think it's your eyes.

-Is it?

-It brings attention to your eyes.

0:14:260:14:29

-They look like moons.

-Like moons?

0:14:290:14:31

When you look into them, you can see the ocean.

0:14:310:14:34

-And the moon?

-Yeah.

-You need to work on your chat up. You started well!

0:14:340:14:38

That is so retro and vintage.

0:14:410:14:42

It just really speaks to me about the modern era

0:14:420:14:45

and also the future, but mostly the past.

0:14:450:14:47

-These are really big in Hoxton right now.

-Oh, really?

-Yeah, totally.

0:14:470:14:51

I think it just suggests I'm very studious.

0:14:520:14:54

-The bigger the better.

-Do you reckon?

0:14:580:15:00

I think they are stunning. Absolutely gorgeous. I love them.

0:15:000:15:03

-Are you kidding?

-Honestly, I love them!

0:15:030:15:06

Let's go and push up our glasses together.

0:15:060:15:08

Next up, it's time to dump the fakery

0:15:110:15:14

and meet a brassy broad who prefers the naked truth.

0:15:140:15:17

Hi, I'm Meleisha. I'm 23, and I am from Huddersfield.

0:15:170:15:21

I work as an electrician at a waste plant.

0:15:250:15:28

I do feel quite boyish, as I blend in with the rest of the lads.

0:15:300:15:33

It's not very feminine, is it?

0:15:330:15:35

It's definitely a total contrast to how I look at work and me going out.

0:15:350:15:41

Sometimes, I do think I look a bit naked, but, you know,

0:15:430:15:46

if you've got it, flaunt it.

0:15:460:15:48

I would say I dress like this so that I feel more girly.

0:15:490:15:55

I love shopping and, at the moment,

0:15:550:15:57

it seems I like a lot of skimpy clothing.

0:15:570:16:00

Sometimes, things are a little bit short.

0:16:000:16:02

She shows a little bit too much.

0:16:020:16:04

We were in town yesterday, and she bought a very short little skirt.

0:16:040:16:07

She had it on, and I were like, "Ugh!"

0:16:070:16:09

My most outrageous outfit is an all-in-one bodysuit.

0:16:090:16:13

It's actually underwear.

0:16:130:16:14

It's got peepholes for your nipples and it's crotchless.

0:16:140:16:17

I feel confident because what I'm wearing is like a statement of me.

0:16:190:16:24

The attention she gets when she's out with me, it's quite overt.

0:16:240:16:27

There's lots of wolf whistles and men ogling her and stuff like that.

0:16:270:16:31

When I go out in an outfit like this, my grandma would say,

0:16:310:16:34

"Meleisha, are you not wearing a coat?"

0:16:340:16:36

If I saw Meleisha with a makeunder, I would probably cry, because

0:16:380:16:41

I think it would look so stunning as she is a stunning girl.

0:16:410:16:44

See ya!

0:16:440:16:46

I work hard, party harder.

0:16:470:16:49

On a night out, I'm always on the dance floor.

0:16:510:16:53

A few drinks, it's all about the music, all about my friends

0:16:530:16:56

and having a good time.

0:16:560:16:58

At the end of the night,

0:16:580:17:00

I probably am the last person on the dance floor.

0:17:000:17:03

And when we go onto the street, we'll have a little boogie.

0:17:030:17:07

POD, I might work in waste,

0:17:090:17:12

but I'm not going to waste this body by covering it up.

0:17:120:17:15

Bring it on, POD!

0:17:150:17:18

I'm meeting Meleisha in a local cafe for a drink.

0:17:180:17:21

The thing is, I feel a bit overdressed.

0:17:210:17:23

So what's your look now? How would you describe it?

0:17:230:17:26

My look is very revealing,

0:17:260:17:29

quite sexy, a bit funky.

0:17:290:17:31

So it's like a lacy curtain with some bits cut out?

0:17:310:17:36

With a lot of bits cut out.

0:17:360:17:38

-So you'd go out like this of an evening?

-Yes.

-Wow!

0:17:380:17:41

Do you think maybe you find it a little bit tricky to dress

0:17:410:17:45

in a way you think is sexy and attractive but isn't underwear?

0:17:450:17:49

THEY LAUGH

0:17:490:17:51

To put it bluntly.

0:17:510:17:53

If I wear certain tops, my boobs just look really funny

0:17:530:17:56

because they're so big.

0:17:560:17:57

Yeah, all right, no need to boast!

0:17:570:17:59

So if you're so happy with the way that you look and your style,

0:18:010:18:04

why are you going into POD?

0:18:040:18:06

I want to see if POD can make me cover up a bit more

0:18:060:18:10

but still be sexy.

0:18:100:18:12

What is the worst thing she could do?

0:18:120:18:15

-Put me in a turtleneck.

-THEY LAUGH

0:18:150:18:18

I don't think anyone's worn a turtleneck since 1997,

0:18:180:18:21

-so I think you're safe.

-Hope so!

0:18:210:18:24

-Are you ready to go and see POD?

-Yeah.

-Come on, follow me!

0:18:240:18:27

Right, get in there.

0:18:290:18:31

Let me in, POD!

0:18:320:18:33

I am POD, the Personal Overhaul Device. Who are you?

0:18:410:18:46

I'm Meleisha.

0:18:460:18:47

Meleisha Beacon?

0:18:470:18:49

As in Meleisha, Meleisha.

0:18:490:18:52

POD computes you need time to finish getting dressed.

0:18:520:18:56

I'm finished!

0:18:560:18:58

I'd quite like to see your eyes, please.

0:18:580:19:01

Ta-da!

0:19:010:19:02

Don't look now, but some spiders are attacking your face.

0:19:020:19:05

Oh, my God, no!

0:19:050:19:07

Oh, no, they are fake eyelashes.

0:19:070:19:10

Meleisha, POD would like to know why a stunning,

0:19:100:19:13

pretty girl is dressing like a streetwalker?

0:19:130:19:17

-SHE LAUGHS

-I think that's a bit cheeky, POD!

0:19:170:19:19

Young lady, I can see your pum-pum and your puppies!

0:19:190:19:22

No, you can't. I have underwear on.

0:19:220:19:25

What do you think about natural beauty?

0:19:250:19:27

I am quite natural, POD.

0:19:270:19:30

As natural to naked as you could be.

0:19:300:19:33

I'm talking about natural beauty, NOT being a naturalist!

0:19:330:19:36

Hmm.

0:19:360:19:37

What attracted you to this extreme look?

0:19:370:19:40

-The fact that I can pull it off, maybe?

-So, it's ego?

0:19:400:19:43

No, I don't have a big ego.

0:19:430:19:46

Can you tell POD what your look says to other people?

0:19:460:19:50

I think it says I am quite confident, that I dare to bare.

0:19:500:19:55

I'm a little bit crazy, maybe.

0:19:550:19:58

Shall we hear what the general public think about this look?

0:19:580:20:01

Oh, go on.

0:20:010:20:02

I asked the public - would you want to snog, marry or avoid this girl?

0:20:050:20:10

What do you think they said?

0:20:100:20:12

Snog.

0:20:120:20:13

Would you like to hear some of their comments?

0:20:130:20:16

Go ahead.

0:20:160:20:17

I'd avoid her because she's a bit eccentric and a bit outrageous.

0:20:170:20:22

Hmm, yeah, choice of opinion, who cares?

0:20:220:20:25

I'd avoid her, cos she has too much make-up on, she looks like a clown.

0:20:250:20:29

Ahhh! I don't think so.

0:20:290:20:31

I would avoid her because she wears too much make-up

0:20:310:20:34

and she needs a good clean-up.

0:20:340:20:36

SHE CHUCKLES

0:20:360:20:37

Yeah, whatever.

0:20:370:20:39

Meleisha, 100% of the public want to avoid you.

0:20:390:20:43

POD computes that you are a club-crazed calamity

0:20:430:20:46

who's exposing herself to the extreme.

0:20:460:20:48

You need my Flesh Flashy Strumpet to Sophisticated Stunner Makeunder.

0:20:480:20:53

Bit harsh.

0:20:530:20:54

It is now time to run the Deep Cleanse.

0:20:540:20:57

SUSPENSEFUL HUMMING

0:21:000:21:02

I would like you to remove all your accessories,

0:21:020:21:05

starting with those ridiculously high shoes.

0:21:050:21:07

OK, off with those disco balls.

0:21:110:21:13

Please remove all of your make-up.

0:21:160:21:18

Hold up that wipe.

0:21:210:21:22

Let's see how much is on it.

0:21:220:21:24

Not much.

0:21:240:21:25

Oh, Meleisha, really?

0:21:250:21:27

Run the makeunder in three, two, one...

0:21:280:21:32

Oh, my God!

0:21:430:21:45

I like the dress.

0:21:450:21:46

What do you love about the dress?

0:21:460:21:48

It's still quite funky.

0:21:480:21:51

POD computes that you may be covered up,

0:21:510:21:53

but with this dress you're still sexy.

0:21:530:21:55

Oh, nice shoes.

0:21:550:21:57

I really like the clothes.

0:21:570:21:59

I am not really liking my hair.

0:21:590:22:04

It's a bit old school.

0:22:040:22:06

Has POD proved to you

0:22:060:22:07

that you don't have to wear a crotchless catsuit to look sexy?

0:22:070:22:11

Yes, POD, you have proved a bit of a point.

0:22:110:22:14

Previously, I asked the public

0:22:140:22:16

if they would like to snog, marry or avoid you.

0:22:160:22:20

They all said avoid.

0:22:200:22:22

Oh, yeah.

0:22:220:22:23

This time, I asked them the same question

0:22:230:22:25

after showing them a picture of you looking like this.

0:22:250:22:29

I would snog her cos she's got cute eyes and I like her dress.

0:22:290:22:34

Cute eyes.

0:22:340:22:36

I would definitely snog her

0:22:360:22:37

cos she looks fresh and natural and beautiful.

0:22:370:22:42

Thanks, but you should want to marry me.

0:22:420:22:44

I'd snog her because she's a very attractive person

0:22:440:22:47

and she looks very fun to be with.

0:22:470:22:49

Ahh, good comment.

0:22:490:22:51

In fact, 90% of the public now want to snog you

0:22:510:22:55

and the rest want to marry you.

0:22:550:22:57

I think you've done a good job, POD.

0:22:570:22:59

Thank you, Meleisha. Goodbye.

0:22:590:23:01

See ya.

0:23:010:23:02

Initiate Podwalk.

0:23:030:23:05

I just want to go on the stage

0:23:110:23:13

and strip my stuff and show them what I've got.

0:23:130:23:15

-You look amazing!

-Thank you!

0:23:440:23:46

Mum, what do you reckon? Have you got a sophisticated daughter?

0:23:460:23:49

She looks beautiful, this is what I'd like to see

0:23:490:23:52

and I think hopefully Meleisha might adopt some of this

0:23:520:23:54

and take it forward with her, cos it really makes her look fantastic.

0:23:540:23:57

-Do you like it?

-I do.

-Your figure looks knockout, but it's covered up!

0:23:570:24:00

Do you think, from now on, you'll go out with a few more clothes on?

0:24:000:24:03

-Maybe.

-Maybe?

0:24:030:24:05

We can only try so far.

0:24:050:24:07

Well done, you look fab.

0:24:070:24:08

-Well done!

-Thank you.

0:24:080:24:10

CHEERING

0:24:100:24:13

POD computes Meleisha has gone from bare-cheek flasher

0:24:130:24:16

to subtle but sexy smasher.

0:24:160:24:18

Meleisha's new look is so stunning now,

0:24:180:24:21

and I've got my daughter back

0:24:210:24:22

and I just think that she'll turn a lot more heads now.

0:24:220:24:25

It's amazing.

0:24:250:24:26

It's very sophisticated.

0:24:260:24:28

We really like it.

0:24:280:24:29

The experience has shown me that I can cover up and still look sexy

0:24:290:24:33

and feel very feminine.

0:24:330:24:35

CHEERING

0:24:350:24:37

Some cool cats in southeast London

0:24:420:24:44

are scratching at the doors of fakery.

0:24:440:24:46

Hello, POD!

0:24:460:24:48

One false nail and the claws are out.

0:24:480:24:52

A stiletto nail is the one that points.

0:24:520:24:54

They look like claws, cat claws.

0:24:540:24:56

Look!

0:24:560:24:57

They're properly funked up.

0:24:570:24:59

Do you like the flowers, POD?

0:24:590:25:01

No, I think they're disgusting.

0:25:010:25:02

It looks like you've had a boxing match with a rainbow.

0:25:020:25:05

SHE LAUGHS

0:25:050:25:07

I think they're a health hazard and they should be banned,

0:25:070:25:09

there should be restrictions on wearing them.

0:25:090:25:11

-You don't think it's quite aggressive and scary?

-It is...

0:25:110:25:14

Like you have little tiny knives.

0:25:140:25:16

POD computes those nails are messing with my sensors,

0:25:190:25:22

there's too much going on.

0:25:220:25:24

Jessica dressed as a Japanese work of art

0:25:280:25:31

while Meleisha didn't really dress at all.

0:25:310:25:33

They both left POD looking absolutely stunning...

0:25:330:25:36

..but did they keep their look?

0:25:380:25:40

No and no!

0:25:410:25:43

Meleisha, I'll start with you. My, how your hair has grown!

0:25:430:25:46

Rapunzel...

0:25:460:25:48

THEY LAUGH

0:25:480:25:49

I know it's still wig right now.

0:25:490:25:51

Obviously, it's not your natural hair,

0:25:510:25:53

but it's a lot more natural-looking.

0:25:530:25:55

-A bit more sophisticated, isn't it?

-It is.

0:25:550:25:57

Well, we've got rid of the red hair, that's a start.

0:25:570:26:00

You look much more natural and you have far more clothes on

0:26:000:26:02

than when I first saw you.

0:26:020:26:04

So I think you're a partial success.

0:26:040:26:06

Do you think you learnt anything?

0:26:060:26:08

Like, do you feel more confident, do you feel less confident?

0:26:080:26:11

I just feel that will benefit me by wearing more clothes

0:26:110:26:15

and not going out like...a bit of a tart.

0:26:150:26:19

That's quite big for you,

0:26:190:26:20

when you used to go out in this sort of underwear.

0:26:200:26:22

-Just had a good experience with POD, it was good fun.

-Yes.

0:26:220:26:25

On to you, Miss Jessica.

0:26:250:26:26

-You haven't got a wig on, but you have purple hair.

-Yeah!

0:26:260:26:30

Jess, how long did it take before the Japanese look came back?

0:26:300:26:33

It lasted...a day.

0:26:330:26:36

So it's safe to say you didn't really like the makeunder.

0:26:370:26:41

I can see why people would wear it, cos it's quite trendy

0:26:410:26:43

and I know a lot of people like to be on a trend,

0:26:430:26:45

but it wasn't for me.

0:26:450:26:46

Why do you think it's so important for you to stand out?

0:26:460:26:49

Cos you like to be unique,

0:26:490:26:51

you always talk about not conforming and all of these things.

0:26:510:26:53

Why should you have to wear something,

0:26:530:26:56

kind of look a certain way, just so people will like you?

0:26:560:26:59

Surely, people will not be so superficial.

0:26:590:27:01

So if you felt all of that, which I think is brilliant,

0:27:010:27:04

why did you come to see POD in the first place?

0:27:040:27:06

Cos I wanted to see what it's like for someone else styling me

0:27:060:27:09

and just, you know, have, like, a new experience.

0:27:090:27:11

You don't really get many experiences like this,

0:27:110:27:13

so it's sort of a special one.

0:27:130:27:15

Yeah, it'll stay close to me.

0:27:150:27:17

Jess, thank you very much.

0:27:170:27:19

I'm sure I'll be finding glitter all over myself for days to come.

0:27:190:27:22

Hi, POD!

0:27:240:27:26

Hi, Ellie. How did your investigation into geek chic glasses go?

0:27:260:27:30

I think it is a little bit silly.

0:27:300:27:32

To be honest though, I think I would do that,

0:27:320:27:35

not with such big glasses, but I reckon I would maybe do it.

0:27:350:27:38

As ever, I'm worried about you soaking up the fakery.

0:27:380:27:42

Well, stop setting me awesome challenges then.

0:27:420:27:44

Ellie, you need to get back out there and quash this ridiculous trend.

0:27:440:27:49

I'm afraid I can't. My friend Nigel the accountant is very keen

0:27:490:27:51

to show me his collection of abacuses, so you can POD off.
