A WOMAN whose favourite television programmes include Hollyoaks and Love Island has claimed she only watches trashy shows for ‘research purposes’.
Joanna Kramer said: “Obviously I don’t actually like this rubbish, it’s just very important that I stay on top of what’s happening culturally.
“I’m not technically a TV critic or cultural commentator, but as an admin assistant in an office stationery supplies company, it’s crucial to know what everyone’s talking about.
“I expect it helps my career in some way. Probably.”
Kramer was unable to elaborate on how binge-watching 10-year-old episodes of America’s Next Top Model was useful in any way, and instead made a confused statement about being “part of the zeitgeist”.
Kramer’s boss Carolyn Ryan said: “I can assure Joanna that her career prospects are not improved by watching an enormous amount of shit TV.
“Nobody else here watches Geordie Shore, so please feel free to let Joanna know she doesn’t have to sit through it on our account.”
Kramer added: “Sorry, I missed that, Hayley was totally dissing Eyal and I got carried away shouting at the telly. For research.”
