Programme 7: Series 10

Sometimes you meet a woman who has a resonance for a nation. That woman is Helen Doran. She is the wife, mother and grandmother that anyone would love to come to for sympathy, comfort and a guaranteed good laugh.

Helen also represents so many Irish women in terms of her body shape. She has a large bust and is conscious of her arms, something a huge amount of Irish women can identify with. She's also about to give her daughter away as mother of the bride. A daunting task unless you're feeling in tip top shape.
