A ski instructor labelled a mummy’s boy by a television show about young people on holiday without their parents says he’s already cut the apron strings.
Max Rayner was filmed with two of his friends for BBC Three’s new series Snow, Sex and Suspicious Parents.
The programme – a spin off from cult documentary hit Sun, Sex and Suspicious Parents – involves film crews following young people on their skiing adventures, but what they don’t know is that their parents are watching.
Unlike some of the show’s participants, apart from being portrayed as a mummy’s boy and a bit flash, 20 year old Max, who lives at home in Leverstock Green, came off quite well.
“Obviously it is edited,” but I’m very happy with how it went,” said Max.
“All right, they did portray me as a mummy’s boy but I’d rather that than a drunk or a wild idiot. We just wanted to come across as how we genuinely are.”
Max, who works at Hemel Hempstead’s Snow Centre and is also a London club promoter, went on the trip to Tignes in France with pals Josh Eastham and Matt Canning.
Since the programme was aired Max has come under some fire from some via his Twitter account – @maaxyr – but says feedback from family and friends has been positive.
His mum Suzanne told the show that she had ‘indulged’ Max and that he needed to learn some housekeeping skills.
But Max told the Gazette: “I pulled my weight at home already. I’m not just lazy. I don’t just sit there and let my mum run around after me, but it’s nice to be nurtured sometimes.”
