Jodie Marsh Takes Over School For Programme On Bullying

Tuesday April 9 2013

BODYBUILDER Jodie Marsh will be seen taking over Carlton Community College for her new TV show about bullying.

The former glamour model stars in the two-part show 'Jodie Marsh: Bullied' and the first episode aired on Channel 5 on April 4. Its second part will air this Thursday at 11pm.

"Carlton had openly admitted it had a problem with bullying and needed help," said Jodie, herself bullied at school. "The kids there were brilliant and I went in with anti-bullying campaigner Alex Holmes and turned the school around."

Jodie said some of the methods used include giving students more responsibility and putting them in charge of stopping any bullying rather than teachers.

"One girl who features in the show was suffering terribly with bullying and had no confidence and couldn't even look me in the eye. Now she's an ambassador for the school and giving talks. I couldn't believe this was the same girl after just three to four weeks."

It's terrible that Jodie Marsh was bullied, but do we want her in our schools? "Mum why is Jodie Marsh famous?" "Errrm, she got her boobs out a lot, dated celebrities and exchanged insults with Jordan"

I think it is outrageous to claim that she 'turned the school around'. My daughter has been bullied relentlessly for years and is now at the point where she cannot attend lessons with the other children for fear of violence and abuse from gangs of spiteful littke girls who egg each other on to behave in this way. The school has a 'softly softly' approach that clearly does not work. Where was Jodie for my daughter?

i feel of you, all schools have bullies but it only takes school to take action for it to stop and if it is out of school ring police

i say get kids into self defence classes like karate at an early age, it builds confidence and they will be able to look after theirselves and deter bullies. I will certainly be taking my boy to either karate or boxing when he reaches 5, maybe 6.
