Although she did not base her performance as Tanya on any real footballer's wife in particular, Zöe Lucker said she based some elements of Tanya on the character of Ginger (Sharon Stone) in Casino (1995). See more »
Going out with a page three model is one thing but getting married to one is embarrassing.

This is an entertaining drama, which is not really going to tax your brain to much. It features the wives of a group of footballers in a fictional Premiership football team. Story-lines include attempted murder, drug abuse, adoption, adultery and a nurse who has a bit of a fetish for her comatose patients. All slightly far-fetched but so what?? US soap operas like Sunset Beach thrived on this. Real life footballer's wives such as Posh Spice (Mrs David Beckham) have criticized the program for being unrealistic but it does not claim to be a documentary.
