Brangelina break-up: what our mums said


You know news out of Hollywood is truly huge when it manages to cross your parents' radar (cutting through lunch time G&Ts, runs to the supermarket and yes, even Gardeners' Question Time).

And when we were hit by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce announcement earlier this week, what we *really* wanted to know was not the opinion of endless pundits and commentators - but WWMS (What Would Mum Say)?

Or OK, What Would Dad Say too... 

Here, fair readers, is the result - from a very much random collective of mums and dads.

From the breathless to the couldn't-care-less (and with absolutely no basis in fact whatsoever), their reactions make for golden reading.  

Brad who?


Hearing it for Ange


Get some grit


Shocks all round


In the thick of it




Not a fan


Couldn't care less


Yep, still couldn't care...
