Edith Bowman: I've had enough of reality TV


Edith Bowman has hit out at "manufactured" reality TV shows.

The DJ and broadcaster, 42, previously took part in Celebrity Fame Academy, for Comic Relief, when 10 million people saw her win the show.

But Edith, who is on the jury with The Revenant star Will Poulter helping to decide the five nominees for this year's Bafta EE rising star award, said she would never have another go at the genre.

"I'm bored of reality TV," Edith told the Press Association.

"You get the questions coming in about doing it. But I think it's got to the point that my agent doesn't tell me now when I'm asked because they know I'm just not interested.

"I'm just a bit bored by it. Just tell real stories rather than trying to put real people into manufactured stories that are as far removed from reality as possible," she said.

The DJ said she hadn't even heard of X Factor wannabe Honey G.

"I've no idea who you're talking about," she said.

"But if she's taking the piss out of the show and that shows you how ridiculous it is ... I quite like that."
