Britain's Missing Top Models - BBC Three - watch it!

The BBC Three series 'Britain's Missing Top Model' started this week [Tuesdays 9pm] and and although it may have a few cringe-worthy moments it is actually very promising. Some may feel it is a bit voyeuristic at times but being a series about models you could say that's the nature of the beast I guess.

It will be interesting to see how the series evolves [and how it goes down with disabled and non disabled viewers] but just having a few disabled women on the TV is refreshing; when you actually see disabled people on TV you realise what a rare event it still is....
