Go To

Sadie J is a CBBC television series. The titular protagonist is a 12-year-old girl, sharing a household with male relatives and their closest friends. As the show often reminds you, Sadie Jenkins is the only girl in a boy's world.

Started in 2011 and ended in 2013. Much of the charm of the series is the three plots going on at once and the occasional references to Sadie's Missing Mom.


  • Celebrity Star: There's a plot to meet Pixie Lott in one episode.
  • Cosmetic Catastrophe: Sadie deliberately inflicts one on herself in order to submit a review thrashing her father's fiancee's beauty salon.
  • Married to the Job: Steve. He was Happily Married, but then... Deconstructed, in a way. He's so obsessed with business, he constantly tries to get everything done the same day, leading to some desperate situations for him and Keith.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Sadie to Kit.
  • Older Than They Look: Lampshaded with Keith in Partylicious. He had trouble getting into a 15-rated movie for that reason, causing his girlfriend to storm off.
  • Unmanly Secret: Kit tries to hide his fashion interests from cousin Lollo (Welsh, pronounced Yoh-low) by pretending to enjoy rugby. Lollo then says that he'd like him anyway when he accidentally (but inevitably) finds out.
