E4 teen series Skins has been named as the most unrealistic portrayal of student life on TV by a recent poll.

The drama was voted the by 67% of those polled in the MyVoucherCodes survey to be the least realistic of all teen shows ahead of the likes of Hollyoaks and Gossip Girl which places second and third.

The director of the website, Mark Pearson, said: “The fact that Skins was considered the most unrealistic was no surprise as sixth formers don’t take that many drugs and have that much sex, or at least you would hope.

“I can definitely agree that American TV shows and films that feature students are unrealistic because they are usually played by people in their 30s!”

Skins, which has just been greenlit for a movie, supposedly pales in comparison to the Inbetweeners which was voted the most realistic portrayal of teens.

Voters claimed The Inbetweeners reminds them of “their time with friends at school”.
