Regular characters include Kate 'Normal' Winslet who is determined to show the public she is just like them; Kate Moss and her BFFs Sadie Frost and Stella McCartney; and 'jack of all trades' Lilly Allen who will turn her hand to anything from acting to hair bleaching.
Meanwhile the original characters creations for the show include Captain 'Be The Best' Rosie who investigates life on the 'civvy streets' for Armed Forces TV; and Caroline Little Treats who tries to make sense of life armed with a billion Heat magazines and a vat full of wine.
