    I thought it was going to be a reality programme. Very pleased to see it’s a drama.

    Absolute rubbish, and the sex scene in the bathroom was completely unnecessary – would rather turn the telly off and watch the paint dry on the walls. Am more annoyed that the BBC have decided not to bring back Frankie, but are more than willing to put something like this on – I am afraid I changed channels to watch something more interesting.
