Footballer$ Wives had changed a lot. It started with the Turners, Pascoes and Walmsleys, with a string of other characters too. Since then the Walmsleys have departed, as have Jason Turner and Chardonnay Lane-Pascoe. Written by
This is one of the best shows to watch, you don't need to know everything that has happened beforehand to watch and the storyline's aren't very taxing after a long day at work.
The show follows (as you've probably guessed) Premiership footballers and their wives. There are Jason (seasons 1 & 2) and Tanya (season 1 - ), the constantly sparring, schemeing and cheating couple. He's a sex-mad, homophobic bad buy and captain of Earls Park Rangers while she's a cocaine addict, attempted murderer and TV's biggest bitch.
Next there's the dull Walmsley family, who only lasted 1 1/2 seasons on the show.
The Pascoes consist of Kyle (season 1 - )and his glamour model wife Chardonnay (seasons 1 & 2), as well as his mother Jackie. They are very Posh and Becks. In season 1 Jackie got pregnant with Jason Turner's baby, and then Char learned she couldn't have kids so they came up with the crazy idea that she and Kyle would bring up Jackie's baby. But as ever in FW things went wrong and it turned out that the baby had both male and female reproductive organs. At the end of season two, Jackie left with baby Paddy. Will she return?
There are also other characters, Salvitore Biagi (another footballer), who had an affair with Donna Walmsley, Freddie Hauser (his new love interest), Stefan (her father, manager of Earls Park) and Frank (who Tanya tried to kill and also works at Earls Park).
Overall this show is great!
