Did her husband utter a single word? The whole thing was rather weird.
Seems he will marry anything to get a UK visa.......

That HAS to be the reason!



And as for that gormless girl, in love with the fat lad (he is an arsehole)....... at first I thought the mum was harsh, but she was actually trying to make the girl see sense........ he was hopeless, didn't want her, and she needed to be told.........


sad to say, she will never get anyone better, (only thinking he was ace because he didn't beat her up) because she looked like a female version of Sloth out of The Goonies...

I only caught part of this, but still cannot quite get over the fact that these are real people. Gobsmacking.
Oh, they're real alright. I was born and brought up very, very near to there (in fact I was born 2 minutes walk from Bernard Manning's Embassy Club) so know that all too well, sadly.

By quitting the booze, the fags, the drugs, losing weight, eating healthily, educating themselves, bettering themselves, and working for a living

It very much reminded me of growing up on a large council estate in Newcastle in the 1940s/1950s - except they all had a lot more than we, and those around us, ever had.

Jamie - what on earth do women see in him? Do they lust after his charm, his good looks, his toned body, his intelligence? Whatever it is, he has it well hidden.

Chris - the first thing to be done to help him is to stop giving him the money for cigarettes and booze.And since neither appeared to work, where did the huge TV, computer and other gadgets come from?

Amber reminded me of Rosah from Coronation Street. Even back in the 50s, there were some beautiful girls around the estates. Alas, a look at their mothers told you how they'd turn out in 20 years time.

......... But maybe he's get to not work, get drunk maybe get 'some' and she got the child she always wanted... it would work out well for them both............
If you're talking about chris and nikki, I think you may have missed a bit .... nikki used to be nigel.

Its just a circle really, how can these people get out.
In my case, I got out by going to grammar school. Unfortunately, that route is, in general, no longer possible. Thanks to politicians, many of whom themselves escaped from council estates because of them.

Not sure of the point of this show.

It's not real enough to be a documentary.

It's not interesting enough to be a reality show with contrived situations and interesting characters and/or archetypes.

It's too depressing to be a sustained draw under either category above. A one-off with much better editing and a narrator would have made the point about the area and its challenges without the potential for the usual fleeting tabloid anti-fame.

Having rewatched People like us again, It struck me that Amber and Codie seemed to stick out as the stars of the show - so after doing some research I was interested to find out that Amber and Codie are with Laine Management casting agency. I bet they are actresses brought in to launch reality TV show careers.

Its a shame the gay guy had to be onto drag!

He seemed pretty normal, owning a shop.

most gay men aren't camp drag queens, but another show that makes that look likr the norm

Dale was on Sun, Sex & Suspicious Parents a few weeks back.

Pleased this girl got into uni. She might seem a bit dim but at least shes trying to move away from that kind of lifestyle.

True ... my error. Still ... cash in hand, and I'm sure every penny is declared to the IR.
