Trivia

Danniella Westbrook has revealed that she became so affected by cocaine in 1995 that she would continuously mess up her lines, had to do take after take, was constantly late and needed prompts, and spontaneously fell asleep, once even passing out while she stood at the top of the Queen Vic stairs during filming, and was only saved from harming herself by Ross Kemp who caught her in his arms.

Crazy Credits

As of 2009, an updated satellite picture of East London is being used. And the title faded onto the picture rather than scroll up onto the screen. See more »

The most depressing dingiest thing on TV
19 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If this is classed as 'real life' of London, then the producers must be on different planet.

It is the most depressing, suicidal, dark, dingy, dross on TV.

Everyone is fighting, everything has nasty under tones running through it, nothing is done for genuine reasons.

If you want a real life picture of people in London or the UK, then this programme is by the farthest from reality.

There is not one good word I can say about this programme. The only certainty is that will be a great big fight over Christmas dinner.

Even the characters are totally unbelievable!
