Meet the Parents

Joy Clothing is under fire this week after an email newsletter sent out to all of their customers was branded as sexist.

People are outraged by the retailer, who have more than 25 stores across the UK, as the comments in the email are seen as outdated and from "the 1950s."

The newsletter, entitled "Meet The Parents" is all about covering up on Christmas Day to please the whims of your boyfriend's (or "little prince's") parents.

"Show your boyfriend's Mum you're the girl to take care of her little prince in beautiful dresses that scream marriage material," reads the email.

"Knee length skirts exude class while respectable necklines mean Father-In-Law won't have a heart attack when you lean across the table for a second helping of roast potatoes."

The email is under fire, with many customers taking to Twitter and Facebook to slate the brand. 

"Try to refrain from blasting out your 1950s heteronormative advertising for 2017. You might win a few more customers," said one angry customer. 

"Also, if anyone's partner's dad is ogling their boobs over dinner, punch him square in the nose and take that meal to go."

The brand told the Daily Mail: “We acknowledge that we missed the mark with our phrasing and apologise deeply to all our customers who feel offended, as this was certainly not our intention. We treasure and value our customers greatly.”

As she prepared to head up her brand new show, Meet the Parents, Holly decided a new show deserved a fresh haircut.

"New show… new lil' chop!" she said to her 1.4 million followers.

Saying goodbye to a few inches, the 35-year-old looked amazing with her lob-length cut and fans were equally as impressed.

“LOVE the new hair, Holly!” one follower wrote.

“Hair inspiration, definitely having my hair cut off,” said another who will be taking that picture to the hairdressers on her next visit.

Introducing your boyfriend to your parents can be a daunting task – not just for your other half, but for your mum and dad as well.

However, stick with us and they will be putty in his hands in no time.

Give them a heads up
Avoid arriving unexpectedly at your parent’s house with your boyfriend in tow.

Make sure he brings a gift
Flowers for your mother and wine for you father are usually fool-proof presents.

Keep PDA to a minimum
This includes holding hands. You want your parents to think he is a sweet and respectful boy.

Take it slow with the wine
You’re not out with your mates now, so avoid downing the bottle. Both you and your boyfriend will need to keep your wits about you, especially when dad starts asking awkward questions.

Don’t try too hard and remember to relax. If he is a good guy, your parents will usually be able to spot it straight away.
