Gok is a man who persuades fat, plain women to have their photos taken in the buff, naked! He is gay so that's alright. He then styles them so that they look good with clothes on too. He does a deal with a high street store which stocks his fabulous clothes and laughs all the way to the bank. I don't know if he came from a council estate but so what if he did? I did too. If you come from a council estate and you do well for yourself then you've had to work bloody hard. Believe me, I've been there and done that.
Doc. you are spoiling paradise!

It's just as Make it Lady says; also he is also Anglo-Chinese (hence his name) and he does all this on Channel 4 TV.

I have a theory Gok is not gay, its all an act. Did you see when he said to a woman that she had lovely breasts and then asked "may I?" and she said "sure".



Gok Wan, probably not gay.

I think you could be right TS, what a cool disguise that would be, for feeling womens bits without being hit with their handbags.

Well Doc.. I am way out of touch... what is a Council Estate?

I don't get it being a "Fat woman" myself.....
I have more curves and bumps etc.... so wouldn.t posing in the nude, then having him redesigning me with clothes on to make me look better....rather be an insult to my nudity and body type...... and not just mine but to other people with weight problems.... He is basically saying please don't take your clothes off.. let me cover up your shame??? Is he Not????
I guess maybe I don't get it.... and furthermore how would his being gay make it more acceptable for him to do this...... seems Like a bit of exploitation of fat women... where are the fat men being redressed? Then you have the simple issue of weight not men or women just simply the weight issue... what exactly am I missing or missunderstanding?

Having just wrote that post I decided to go google this fellow.. and found there to be a lot more involved then what I was thinking.. so he is more about making "women" at this point be more comfortable with their own naked bodies and also showing them how to dress in away to bring out the beauty in their bodies without having to wear old gunny sacks or tents as clothing!

A lot more to him then meets the eye... He has been in the design buisness for 10 plus years I understand...

Anyway clarified... but my first question still stands!

 Is this a similar term used for the "slums?"

Karen - council estates were built to provide cheap, rented accommodation for people who couldn't afford to buy or rent privately. They had a bit of a bad reputation for unemployment, crime and antisocial behaviour in general. These days, "social housing" (as it is now called) is in the hands of housing associations. However, in many places, the "council estate mentality" still remains.
