If you don’t yet know Caitlin Moran then frankly, what is wrong with you? 

“Writing the F**k out of S**t since 1992” (her words, not mine), Moran has published five books, won enough lit awards to fill a trophy cabinet and currently has not one, not two, but three regular columns in London newspaper The Times.

She’s also an obsessive tweeter, sharing her brilliantly succinct opinions on everything from #Brexit to the death of David Bowie to what it means to be a feminist. With over 570,000 followers, she regularly tops lists of the most influential Brits on Twitter.

But in case you need more reasons to love her, she also has a fantastic new TV series. Raised by Wolves is loosely based on Caitlin’s unconventional childhood growing up with a single mum in 1980s Wolverhampton and it’s brilliant - the perfect blend of hilarious, bizarre and real that is her trademark. Before you tune in, whet your appetite with a few of Caitlin’s finest one liners… in 140 characters. 

 

On the daily terror that comes with eating beetroot

 

When she perfectly summed up the puzzle that is Justin Bieber

 

That time she let her daughter take over her Twitter for an hour…

 

...and celebrated her own kid’s gullibility

 

When she was as bemused as everyone else at the thought of British PM David Cameron, um, being intimate with livestock

 

And when she was all of us on a Sunday morning

 

When she encouraged us to let our freak flags fly

 

And told us all how much she loves David Bowie

 

She even dressed up like him

 

She was completely wrecked when he died

 

No seriously, she loved him much more than you did

 

When she stuck it to the man

 

And envisioned the party to beat all parties

 

When she was every woman, every six to eight weeks

 

And every woman, every day

 

On film? She has opinions

 

She knows a thing or two about cup size

 

When she did a twitter AMA and offered this brilliant time saving advice

 

When she came up with the most terrifying Halloween costume ever

 

And perfectly summed up how easy feminism should be

 

And then- just the other day- when she perfectly summed up why feminism is so important, and why there’s so much further to go
