Angela Scanlon hopes The Noughties helps people remember ‘joyful’ times

OHMYGOSSIP — Angela Scanlon hopes ‘The Noughties’ will help people remember the “joyful and innocent” times of the decade.
The 36-year-old TV presenter wants the nostalgic BBC show to take viewers back to simpler times, compared to the “apocalyptic” news of today amid the coronavirus pandemic.
She said: “I hope they just remember the innocence of us all. I think the whole show is quite nostalgic and it feels nostalgic to even do a show like this.
“So it brought me back to times when the most pressing thing on your to-do list was to read ‘The Da Vinci Code’ and make sure that you were up to date. Or I think one of the most glorious things was Huw Edwards on the news, talking about what happened in ‘EastEnders’ that night.
“To me in 2020 when the news is literally apocalyptic, the idea of sitting down and being like, ‘What’s on the soaps?’ is like watching ‘This Morning’ at 10 o’clock at night. It feels quite joyful and innocent and lovely.”
‘The Noughties’ will take the audience back to early 2000 and through to 2009 to remember the best of television, movies, music, and entertainment highlights of the decade.
The 10-part series will see Angela discuss the best and the worst of each year with a host of celebrities who found fame during the decade, including Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh and former ‘EastEnders’ star Joe Swash.
The first episode – which kicks off on October 21 – will see comedians Ellie Taylor and Geoff Norcott look back at 2000 as they exchange memories of the millennium.
It was the year the ‘Big Brother’ house first opened its doors, Victoria Beckham left the Spice Girls to go it alone, and Anne Robinson became one of the scariest people on television with her iconic quiz show ‘The Weakest Link’.
One thing that sticks out to Angela is the ‘Big Brother’ effect and the start of reality television.
She explained: “I think the significance of ‘Big Brother’ as a kind of cultural barometer was one. We were looking at all of these people, somebody that you could identify with, that were completely unedited and completely unscripted in this little fishbowl, talking about things that usually you only talk about in secret. I think that was oddly liberating for people sitting at home. That was really significant, and I think it’s only become apparent in hindsight just how big that was.”
