There are more people like me on TV than ever before – so why hasn’t my life changed?

From Meryl Williams, a finalist on everyone’s new favourite reality show The Traitors, to Kiruna Stammel entering the GP practice on daytime soap Doctors. Annabelle Davis, daughter of Warwick, joining the cast of Hollyoaks, to Ellie Simmonds waltzing up a storm on Strictly and Francesca Mills, dry-humoured as ever, on The Witcher: Blood Origin.

It’s been an incredible couple of months for people with dwarfism in TV. 

There are more people that look like me on TV, showcasing disabled joy and awesomeness, than ever in my living memory. Whether acting, dancing, or reality tv contestant-ing, we’re seeing them in the fullness of who they are. We get to discover and enjoy their personalities, their talents and – like with all humans – the things they’re not so good at too.
