We never asked for an apology but over 2,600 people have called on MTV to donate 5% of the show's profits to charity

This week has seen MTV kick on with some wierd – and mostly embarrassing – PR stunts to help promote the next series of patronising swipes at the Valleys. We are not much interested in cheap gimmicks but our statement below now invites MTV’s boss, Kerry Taylor to talk to us.

MTV’s media team yesterday released plans for an apology in advance from the cast for their ‘bad behaviour’ and general wackiness. A bit like someone at a party without an invite desperately telling anyone who will listen ‘I’m mad me’!

Check out the statement below from us with an invitation to MTV UK Director, Ms Kerry Taylor to come and talk to us.

Valleys Are Here statement:
“If MTV think they can palm us off with a cheap PR stunt like this they should think again. This cynical apology proves that MTV execs wouldn’t know sincerity if it slapped them in the face.

“Over 2,600 people have called on MTV to donate 5% of the show’s profits to youth charity Valleys Kids because this community campaign is about standing up for an area so many people are proud to call home.

“That’s why a sell out crowd came to see The Valleys Are Here film capturing the people, places and stories that make the place special.

“We’re not interested in fake apologies so we now invite the Director of MTV UK, Kerry Taylor to a public meeting in the Valleys to explain her actions and listen to people’s honest reactions. We’ve made it clear from the start that this is not about the cast and if Ms Taylor refuses to accept the invitation, we will hold a public debate outside MTV’s London offices at a time of our choosing.”
