One of the worst TV shows ever
26 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

The writing and acting in this Chester-set Channel 4 / E4 soap opera are awful. I can't understand why this is on prime-time national television.

There have been many specials and spin-offs, which are just as bad as the main series.
