No I don't mean scripted, I mean TOWIE style acting where they take people, create a basic situation and tell them what to say, probably do re-takes etc.
Not a documentary where they are just filming what happens.
I don't think it's intended to be in the same mould as TOWIE, although obvious comparisons have been made. Seems more like a docusoap than 'constructed reality' where it's quite obvious scenes are staged and storylines are created. I wouldn't say that was the case here, although obviously editing in itself can be quite manipulative and I'm sure some elements have been contrived by the producers (that lad doing his drag show in the local pub for example seems like something that would have been decided by the producers rather than himself).
