    15 Signs You're Actually Marsha From Spaced

    Look at your hand. Is there wine in it? If so, you're probably Marsha, the permanently sozzled landlady from '90s sitcom Spaced.

    1. You say "bloody hell" at least 543 times a day.

    Although who can blame you for swearing when you spend 90% of your time listening to your tenants complain about failed job interviews or how much they hate The Phantom Menace... sorry, "jumped up firework display of a toy advert".

    2. You're extremely charming.

    "Marsha's our landlady and as far as she's concerned, Daisy and me are a professional couple, but that's not really important. Anyway, she's lovely."

    3. You think it's fine to start drinking at 10.25am...

    After all, it isn't easy to get through a whole episode of This Morning without a bit of a pick me up.

    4. ...but it rarely ends well.

    5. You're good with animals.

    Ok, this does look a bit bad. But Colin really needed a drink after going through this terrible ordeal.

    6. Your parenting style is... unique.

    ...but who can blame you for getting annoyed when the fruit of your loins keeps "fucking off to Top Shop with the housekeeping"?

    7. You know what you want where men are concerned...

    ...and you aren't afraid to demand it again and again (and again) until they eventually give in.

    8. You think that wine is a food.

    It's got grapes in it, after all. In fact, it's practically one of your five a day.

    9. You'll do anything to help your friends...

    Via YouTube

    ...even if that means doing your best to depress them so they can use their newfound misery to get over a bad case of painter's block.

    10. You try to keep in shape...

    11. ...but it doesn't always go according to plan.

    Via YouTube

    ...especially when you decide to go out for a run with someone who's "allergic to endorphins" and very, VERY competitive.

    12. You're extremely stylish...

    Via YouTube

    ...don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Especially someone who thinks it's appropriate to pair neon yellow trainers with a blue dress.

    13. You find it hard to let go of old relationships.

    Via YouTube

    ...although relationship possibly isn't the right word to describe an arrangement where you accept "pleasures of the flesh" from a struggling artist in place of rent.

    14. You're quick to anger.

    Via YouTube

    ...particularly when you discover that your "new little group of young friends" have been lying about their relationship for the last two years.

    15. ...but you usually come round in the end.

    Via YouTube

    But only if the people who upset you do something "bloody spectacular" to make up for it. Ideally involving a boom box, Take That and a stolen tank.
