Atlantis star Sarah Parish: ‘The X Factor makes me sick’

Sarah Parish has criticised The X Factor, saying that vulnerable people are being ridiculed for entertainment.

The Atlantis star said that she could not bear to watch the ITV show.

She told the Radio Times: “Watching The X Factor makes me feel sick.

“When somebody obviously awful goes on and there might be something wrong with them, but they’ve been allowed on a television show anyway, that makes a bit of me die.”

Asked what she would ban, Sarah, 45, said she was a fan of Strictly Come Dancing, but added: “TOWIE, Made In Chelsea, and Geordie Shore. They’re just unbearable, such a bad influence on people and brain-numbing.”

The former Cutting It star said: “I’m desperate to do comedy. Over the last four years I’ve played a lot of grumpy, evil people.

“I’d like to go to work and bounce about all day, rather than poke dolls with pins or put spells on people.”
