Drawing on questionnaires completed by mothers across the UK, this book shed new light on the varied and diverse ways in which expectant, new and existing mothers make sense of popular representations of motherhood on television.

The research seeks to present the voice of the maternal audience and, as such, it takes as its starting point those maternal depictions and motherwork representations that are highlighted by this demographic, including figures such as Tess Daly and Katie Hopkins and programmes like TeenMom and Kirstie Allsopp's oeuvre."--Cover."@en ;
