    Daniella Westbrook
    Nicola Stapleton
    Shirley Cheriton
    Patsy Palmer

    be grubby and street cred.... everyone walking about in anoracs and jeans

    Never mind it kicking off, I cannot wait for the final whistle.

    I agree with you - the programme is a waste of licence fee payer's money. I never watch it because I just cannot relate to the sour cockney flavour of the series.

    I always blame the series for the main dumbing down British television since the mid 1980s - perhaps Coronation Street and Emmerdale would still be only on twice a week if the BBC and ITV never had that "how many episodes can we show a week" auction in 1990s and 2000s. Keep it in London, that's what I say!

    Can not help but agree with you here silverbirch with there being some stunning looking women on it. Gillian Talyforth looks amazing given she is in her 60s and she looks 25 years younger tha Adam Woodyatt who age has'nt been kind to. Talk of her being his Mum - he could play the part of her Dad and it'd be more covincing than her being his mum in the extreme!

    For me the ultimate two stunners are still on it and have just left - Sharon and Mel .... 2 stunners who look amazing for tyheir advancing years, though of course I was always partial to a woman with a "Permed Haircut" as so was so "back in the day" that Sharon donned!!

    Martine McCuthen as Tiffany was always a stunner too as is Charlie Brooks as Janine and even Lisa (Lucy Benamin) looks well - admitted not as well as Mel (Tamzn Outhwaite) who like Sharon just excels beyond their years and must have lived all their lives in Monestry's to look so well

    Additionaly I loved roxy and Ronnie Mitchell as "stunners" and Kim Medcalf indeed as Sam Mitchell number 2 - who gave her a great new twist as an intellegent woman and buisness-women and an astute woman of the world. tracey Ann oberman as Chrisse Watts was equaly beautiful too!

    I always think that there is a north-south divide when it comes to soap operas - this is very much the south part.
