I wish so much there had been a Rae when I was growing up. It would have made my life so much easier to have had someone real on TV that I could have looked at and gone: ‘I kind of look like her. I don’t look perfect, but she’s got friends. People love her so maybe people will like me for being me. I don’t have to change. I can just be myself…’ How can kids and teenagers feel comfortable when they can’t see anyone who looks like them anywhere?

My Mad Fat Diary really helped me with body image and self acceptance. I am grateful for this show.

I love this show so much and I desperately need the American version starring Gabourey Sidibe…
