If you feel like watching local people being set upon by a whiny, middle class, self-righteous idiot, watch this.
The presenter has all the charm of a dust pan. Her accent and speaking style is just AWFUL. She sounds like a police siren at 4 in the morning; pedestrian, repetitive and annoying.
She approaches the local inhabitants of the 'trouble spots' she visits to 'judge' (not report with any measure of impartiality) with a kind of colonial conceit. I'd call it arrogance and pomposity, if not for her 'working class' accent/drone, and sheer lack of on- screen depth.
If this seems unfair, watch one episode of her, then compare this to anything done by, say, Louis Theroix, or Anthony Bourdain.
I have no idea how she could have been chosen to front a journalistic television program. My only guess would be nepotism, cronyism or perhaps just dumb luck.
The show itself is the kind of dross churned out for lazy, fat Euro- trash, almost as a reverse psychology travel brochure. "Oooh 'er, 'arry. Let's 'ave it over in Spain. She says them ecstasy pills are cheap as fook o'er there."
If you liked "Embarrassing bodies" and/or any of the shows where the parents spy on their uncultured brain dead adolescent hate-spawn as they destroy once lovely seaside resorts with alcoholism, violence and STD's, then this crap is for you.
