If you were a Skins fan you’ll absolutely love E4’s new hit show Glue!

Glue -d to E4

For those of you that haven’t had the chance to catch the first few episodes yet, Glue is a British television drama created by the Bafta-winning writer Jack Thorne. Think Skins but in the idyllic English countryside.

The plot revolves around the lives of a group of misfit friends (cue Skins similarity) who are distraught following the mysterious death of their friend, 14-year-old Cal Bray. The investigation into finding the killer unearths a whole host of dark and dirty secrets, from infidelity to lies and betrayal.

Whilst shows with a young cast can sometimes be a gamble, wooden acting is nowhere to be seen in Glue. In fact, the great cast is an aspect that sets it apart from other shows of a similar nature.

One of our current cast favourites is Jessie Cave who plays the quirky Annie Maddocks. So far not too much has been revealed about her character, but we think she could be hiding something. Cave is no stranger to the acting world, best known for her role as Lavender Brown in the Harry Potter series and more recently she was in the hit film Pride.


In fact there are a few well-known faces within the cast including Jordan Stephens, one half of English hip hop duo Rizzle Kicks. We were pleasantly surprised with his acting skills, he plays Rob Kendle, an employed, emotionless, drug-taking saboteur who provides endless comic relief.

Digital Spy described Glue as “unmissable tv” and also claimed it is a “whodunit that will blow your mind.” We can definitely say all of us here at Janes are Glued!

Catch Glue Monday’s from 10pm on E4.
