8 moments from the first week of Connected that got Twitter talking

There was plenty to talk about.

WE’VE NOW SEEN the first four episodes of RTÉ 2′s new reality show Connected.

The show follows six women – Venetia, Alanna, Nicole, Kate, Elayne and Anna – as they film themselves over a period of a few months and give an insight into what life for Irish women is like today.

So what do people think?

Well, they seem quite taken by it and have commended it for its frankness and honesty. They have also become quite attached to some of the show’s stars.

This week saw Alanna speak openly and frankly about her father’s tragic suicide, Kate admit to working as an escort and he demise of Nicole’s relationship with her boyfriend.

But that’s just the beginning.

Here are some other moments that got people talking.


1. There was an appreciation for Nicole’s unique turn of phrase.

2. People were pure scandalised by the revelation that Kate works as an escort…

3. …but arguably even more scandalised when a client paid for her, ahem, services with a bag of scones and a Lindt bunny.

4. Everyone coveted Anna’s crisps sandwich.

6. Meanwhile, others voiced their support for Noel.

7. The Christmas episode got people feeling all Christmassy.

8. And everyone was bowled over by Alanna’s strength and bravery.
