Best tv drama EVER!
12 February 2004 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

Footballers Wives is one of the best television drams to come out of the UK. It started its third series last night and it is still as racey and raunchy as the previous series'. Tanya is still incredible as a Footballers Wife. New arrivals Conrad and Amber Gates keep the show glamorous. Although alot of the original characters have departed to do other things the show is still great with its replacements. No one can beat Tanya and Hazel though. They make the show what it is. Absolutely amazing. I hope this programme goes on for more and more series'. I just love it.
