Trivia

The role of Frank was originally given to Sean Gallagher, but then it was thought he was too young to play the character. It cost makers Company Pictures £100,000 to re-shoot the scenes already filmed with David Threlfall as a replacement.
David Threlfall appeared in all but three of the 139 episodes.
Elliott Tittensor, identical twin brother of Luke Tittensor (who plays Daz Eden in Emmerdale), took over the part of Carl on Shameless when Luke was no longer available because of the Emmerdale filming schedules.

They never show Fiona's tongue on her grey lowtop Chucks because that's where the official "ALL STAR" logo is. This could be because they never got the permission or didn't try.
