Dubbed “The Real-Life Barbie,” 50-year-old Sarah Burge has made a name for herself as Britain’s most frequent user of plastic surgery. Having spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to make herself look young, she is never far from controversy, and neither is her family. Sarah’s six daughters – “The Burge Babes” – are a fierce, close-knit, publicity-craving gang.
Despite being only 16 years old, Hannah has already started Botox treatments under the guidance of her mother. Seven-year-old Poppy joins the rest of the family in pole dancing lessons and has already received vouchers for breast enhancement. And in place of bedtime stories, the girls take turns proofreading Sarah’s erotic novels. Among the antics chronicled in this eye-opening documentary are Sarah’s glamorous “My Big Fat Plastic Surgery” party, the drama surrounding daughter Charlotte’s latest boyfriend, the family’s constant conflicts with disapproving neighbours and Sarah’s attempts to turn each of her daughters into singing sensations. Expect tantrums, tears, arguments and lots of parties.
