Star Stories (UK)

Any UK people here seen this TV show? I'd never heard of it before now. Of course I live in the US and don't watch the BBC. Couldn't find any existing thread on it here.

Star Stories - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Star Stories is a British television comedy programme that takes a satirical look at celebrities and their lives.

Here's how I found out about this show. Stumbled into these youtube clips of the episode satirizing George Michael. They're so funny! And I say that despite being a fan of the guy's soulful ballads. There are appearances by Boy George, Elton John and Bono. The recurring Boy George one especially cracks me up!

yea, seen a couple, the Take That one was funny. And the Bono scene! I have maybe flicked over and watched others for a bit. they can be funny, but at times when they pick on someone's downfall, Im not laughing.


however, I find yer woman, The Katy Brand Big Ass Show far funnier!

Yeah they really do pick on 'em, don't they? Quite mean, even that GM one. I loved the Take That one too! There's more apparently.. Beckham/Victoria, Madonna/Guy.. and one exclusively on Bono! But that one isn't on youtube. Lots of them are though. I'll be watching more.

The Bono one is on the channel 4 website. I dont know if non-UK people can view it though.

I loved the Heather Mills one.

I've watched a few Star Stories episodes and noticed that they seem to either be great or absolute crap. I thought the Take That one was spot-on perfect (especially the Lulu scene ) and the Madonna/Britney from Britney's Star Stories scene was brilliant too.
