It's not really a review I want to post as I can barely remember this programme. I was only 6 years old when I watched it with my family, and we only ever recorded one episode on to tape - it was the episode were Sally's mum (or mother-in-law - not sure which) stays for a while. And I can barely remember that.

But it's just such a shame that this show was never repeated. You can't even buy the videos/DVDs, and I would love to see it again. I also find it shocking that only two people have reviewed it. Maybe no one remembers it any more.

Anyway, I hope this is dug out and repeated on ITV at some point. It'd be a shame if the tapes were destroyed.
