I just wanted my own TV show, admits Greta Thunberg

CLIMATE activist Greta Thunberg has confirmed that starring in her own reality TV show was the entire point from the start. 

The 17-year-old Swede has landed her own BBC series and confessed that she also hopes to appear on Running Wild With Bear Grylls, I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and, eventually, Come Dine With Me. 

She said: “All the usual routes to fame – YouTube, Love Island, child star gone bad – are so well-trodden that nobody pays attention. But climate activism was fresh and different.

“Now I’ve got global fame, I’m ready to capitalise on it. The show will be about my love life, the launch of my eco-friendly make-up range, and my Twitter row with Jesy from Little Mix.

“Then I’ll hit the circuit and invite Hello! into my home, do Celebrity Bake Off and Strictly, put on four stone, get snapped by the paparazzi, appear on the front of OK! under the headline ‘GRETA FATBERG!’, lose it all and release my own diet plan.

“Then it’s the Loose Women panel for the rest of my life. The world? It’ll burn. But it’s not like I’m actually making any difference to that now, is it?”
