Myth. An image created by the media, regarding teenagers who hang around in big groups as trouble making scum bags. Although some of these so called chavs may be trouble makers, this is not the case for many. 'Chavs' are normally found around parks, dressed in named clothes such as adidas, Nike, Reebok, Burberry, Gucci, etc.
It is also a myth that they have low eduaction. This assumption is a stereotypical view of people from council estates expressed via the mass media. Chavs originate from London
Vicky pollard, Victoria Beckham, Jade Goody are some examples of so called chavs

a UK term similar to "White Trash" in the US describing an increasingly large segment of society.Used initially to describe poor people on benefits/welfare trying to "fake" affluence in a vulgar and tacky way, it has evolved to describe all such people independent of income level.

- you adopt fashion whether or not it suits you or is appropriate
- you wear too much make up usually trying but failing to hide bad skin
- you have a tramp stamp,are vagazzeled Or have lips injected so you look like a trout
- you wear lots of often orange make up frequently to try and cover up bad skin
-you drive a BMW or Range Rover that you can barely afford,lease and are typically one late payment away from

repossession.
- You talk about "fine dining" and consider a holiday destination More than 3 hours away "exotic"
- you think fake tans,new tits and logos will make you feel better about yourself.
- your clothes are a couple of sizes too small but your handbag is much too large and with an even bigger logo.
-you think WAGs and Reality TV people are stars

A member of the 'ghetto' world and an outcast of our civil society. You can usually spot a chav by some noticeable features/characteristics e.g pulled-down trousers, communicating in a completely different language from the Queen's English or rolling their sleeves up to their shoulders
Jeremy Kyle is a famous chav-batterer
