Furries to feature on 'OMG! With Peaches Geldof'

Author: Higgs Raccoon

Last Wednesday (March 2) saw the premier of OMG! With Peaches Geldof, a tabloid-style television program hosted by British model Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof.

The program, airing on Wednesdays at 9pm on the UK’s ITV2, is about “people who live unique and often shocking lifestyles – Who are they? What makes them tick? Why do they live the way they do and is it causing them problems or a rewarding way to be?”.

Episode 1 featured vampires and internet dating. Episode 2, to air next Wednesday (March 9), is to feature Furries, described in the OMG! episode guide as “people who have a strong appreciation for anthropomorphic animal characters and dress accordingly”. The episode also features guest panelist Dom Joly, who Peaches described as “quite an embittered man”.

OMG! With Peaches Geldof had previously contacted furries as part of their research phase. The interview is the subject of several threads on the UKFur forums.

    Hi there, I’m not a furry myself, but have an open mind and believe people can do what they like, as long as it’s not harming others against their will.

    I advise you to watch this show with a hefty chunk of salt, and certainly don’t expect a balanced insight into the world of furries. The first (and in hindsight last) episode I saw of it, they (Peaches and the equally appalling co-hosts) were pretty much taking the piss out of the ‘Vampire’ guests on the show, or being laughably patronising.

    It’s poorly presented, researched and only reinforces my utter contempt for Peaches Geldof. Avoid, please.

    I’d say wait for it to air and see what happens, and then make your judgements on it
