The Stepford Girls

by | 9th, August 2004

‘WHEN Hollywood casting directors were looking around for actresses to star in the 2004 remake of the 1975 classic The Stepford Wives, they clearly didn’t visit Chester.

January, February, March, April, May…

Had they done so, they would have found their cast already assembled – tanned, gorgeous and as interchangeable as so many brands of toothpaste.

Actually, they wouldn’t because the cast of Hollyoaks has decamped to Ibiza for the summer, which is where we catch up with them in this week’s OK!

Helpfully, they are all wearing different colour bikinis so that we can tell them apart as they top up their tans, read magazines, play beach tennis and “apply liberal coatings of suntan oil to one other”.

Sarah Dunn (22-years-old, long blonde hair, pierced belly button) shows up in a pink and turquoise number.

Ali Bastian (22-years-old, long blonde hair, pierced belly button) “chose a hot pink bikini with string tied bottoms”.

Jodi Albert (21-years-old, long dark hair, pierced belly button) “kept wrapped in a pink, floral-print sarong and a sky blue bikini, which just managed to keep her contained”.

And Gemma Atkinson (19-years-old, long blonde hair, belly button pierced) was “wearing an orange bikini and showing off her tattoo of Chinese symbols on her belly”.

A spokesman for the show tells OK! that the girls are good pals on and off the set.

“They’ve all worked hard and it’s nice to see them having fun and relaxing on a well-earned holiday.”

But it wasn’t all play for the girls – they were actually in Ibiza shooting the Hollyoaks 2005 calendar.

We’ve got a feeling that one month is going to seem very much like every other next year – except perhaps for October which will be fat and ginger and called Chloe…’
