Meera Shama is a member of FatFighters, appearing in all series'. She is also a main target for Marjorie Dawes's attitude.

Character[edit | edit source]

Unlike the other members of Fat Fighters, the subject of Marjorie's abuse on Meera is placed on her ethnicity rather than her weight as Meera is an Indian woman who sports traditionally Indian clothes and speaks with a strong, yet understandable Indian accent.

Meera is always victim to Marjorie's racist attitude as most sketches will feature Meera making a suggestion with Marjorie pretending to misunderstand her answer and forcing her to continuesly repeat it while Marjorie continues to nag her to say it again, often using the line "Do it again?" up untill someone else, usually Tanya, interprets for her. 

Despite this, Meera appears fully adapted to Western culture; enjoying lasagne, EastEnders and even having originated from the London surburbs in New Malden.

Meera quit FatFighters with the rest after Marjorie had been cruel to Pat for long enough already. Meera told Marjorie that they were never coming back and when Marjorie, of course, asked, "Do it again!", Meera just waved her hand in disgust. Marjorie often writes down what she thinks she's saying (Fish and Chips- Curry etc.).
