Yeaaaaaaaaah, I know all a y’all been waiting for bare time for this one. And I am never one to disappoint – aside from that one time I told my mate I was going to go to Blackpool with her but then bailed and hid in my house until she stopped knocking. Anyhoo, Ed Westwick, despite playing a very convincing American, is actually English and from the thriving metropolis that is . . . Stevenage. So you can understand why he left for Hollywood, right? Possessing a jawline that was verily hewn from a hefty slab of rock, brows as straight as arrows, and the eyes of a majestic giant eagle, Eddie has the regal bearing of a Navajo warrior; yet the reassuringly middle-class brawn of a true Hertfordshire lad. Chuck Bass is a sexually deviant, morally dubious, billionaire hedonist – basically the dream. Gossip Girl may be over, but our dreams are not. Long live Chuck!
