This Weekend’s TV: Fangs, Fawning and Farrah

17 July 2009

Kate Moss

Forget the dull and drizzly weather forecast, because - in front of the box, at least, this weekend's a scorcher. Tonight sees the UK debut of the unmissable Farrah's Story - the unbelievably moving tale of the Charlie's Angels star's battle with cancer (Channel 4, 7.30pm) - and the UK premiere of True Blood (FX, 10pm) - the brilliant, grown-up answer to Twilight's sexy vampires, with a gorgeous cast of complex characters, with clever dialogue and slightly dirty sex (what's not to love?)

Then on Sunday, we'll be glued to the sofa for behind the scenes footage when the Phil Green'n'Kate Moss show hit New York for the opening of Topshop (Topshop NYC in 24 Hours, 9pm, MTV). It's intimate and funny, and Kate's nail-biting nerves as she waits to unveil herself in the window of the store are actually very sweet. In other words, this is a kind of vulnerable Kate Moss - a side we've never really seen before. Which almost makes us glad we've had to cancel that barbeque... Almost.
