Reality stars are ‘better role models than politicians’ says top headmistress

Stars of reality TV shows are far better than politicians at setting an example to children, a headmistress claims.

Sue Hincks, incoming president of the Girls’ Schools Association, praised the morals and integrity of contestants in Love Island and I’m A Celebrity.

This is in stark contrast to the outrageous antics of US president Donald Trump, she said.

Miss Hincks, who has been head of the girls’ division at Bolton School for eight years, called for public figures and political leaders to remember they are role models to the young.

‘Public figures – whether they like it or not – have a responsibility to remember that young people are watching everything they do,’ she said.

Miss Hincks said her school has held an assembly about President Trump, which involved discussing lewd comments he made in a 2005 conversation, and whether he is fit to lead.

In contrast, there was a consensus that Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer, winners of reality dating show Love Island, were ‘quite a moral couple’.

‘That was a really good message to give young people because they were seen to be acting with integrity,’ she said. 

‘Even more so with I’m A Celebrity because it was generally regarded that Harry Redknapp was a loving man who was presenting an image of masculinity that sometimes we don’t see.

‘Sometimes those shows do present arguments for decency which is really useful to use in assemblies because all of us are judged by our peer group.’
