Amanda HarringtonAfter our bile-spewing episode one recap seemed to hit a nerve – legal threats and servers breaking: just a normal day on SevenStreets – you can be sure we weren’t fans of the Liverpool-based ‘dramality’ (all the turgid lies of a reality show, with additional wooden acting).

We didn’t write about the series after that, but we kept a close eye on what our Twitter and Facebook followers were saying. The general consensus: total shit, but the shots of Liverpool looked nice.

The cast have been holding out for the E4 gods to recommission the show – tans have been topped up, talons polished, tweets sent – but alas, it looks like it’s not to be. Today there’s been reports swirling in various newspapers that it’s been axed, and that viewers “failed to warm” to characters like ice queen/MDF human Amanda Harrington. Whatever could they mean?

There’s been no official confirmation from the cast members or production team (edit: today, 28th Feb, E4 bosses confirmed it’s not coming back), but it looks like the show’s on its knees, quivering round the back of E4’s shed, waiting for the bullet. You’re all invited to our street party to celebrate.

  • DMcCSE17

    @merseytart @7streets now if only they could do the same with TOWIE and MIC!

  • Cat

    There needs to be a decent tv show set in Liverpool so there can be nice shots of our city complete with engaging story lines and charachters we can actually identify with….not Brookside take 2 but like a decent comedy or something….any budding scouse scriptwriters out there should get their thinking caps on!

  • helenblakeman

    @7streets then they can all go back to their day jobs… Whatever they were…

  • thinwightduke

    @Aim1251 who decided this? What now for Danny and Layla and the one who said she was a journalist? They’ll die without E4!

  • MyLiverpool_

    @racheldenton @laurawalker89 @7streets hallelujah !!

  • Marie McGowan

    But what to do with me jumbo rollers now?

  • Patricia Onyia

    Out of UK while this was being aired, so can’t comment on the programme. On the other hand, I found all your articles and the comments very entertaining. Thanks πŸ™‚

  • Mandy Williams

    to bad rubbish!

  • Tony Lunn

    oh dear, what a shame. NOT! despised that programme, that “ice queen/MDF human Amanda Harrington” shout killed me, haha brilliant mate πŸ™‚

  • Denise Tench

    Next stage in ‘TV evolution’ please – reality TV has outstayed its welcome, like a boring acquaintance sitting on the sofa at midnight on Sunday.

  • Sevenstreets

    wonder what the opposite of a Midas touch is? La Harrington certainly has it.

  • Neil Grant

    The ‘cloth touch’

  • Gemma Craven

    I liked it!

  • Steven Tench

    I have a dream… where this bollocks programme gets taken off the air forever, where the people who are on it end up in the doll queues and where something good comes on the telly for a change so I have something worth paying a license for

  • Rosey Malone

    STOP with the reality TV !! it’s bloody awful….then we have hours of coverage about the reality TV on other channels and then a whole of host of magazine and other media deals, we have a horrible celebrity culture.

  • Arne Nielsen

    Mind knumbing headache prevoking shite!!! What has society become…

  • Gemma Darracott

    No idea why I watched it, never liked it and won’t miss it. πŸ™‚

  • Brian Nicholson

    I did not see it but hopefully I can get the box set in Home Bargain

  • Mike Donnelly

    I hated it and yet watched every episode. I don’t know what to think anymore!

  • Julie Moloney

    Sooo glad its going. Sad wannabee chavs. Sorry its the truth

  • Paul Jones

    Awful programme showcasing vacuous idiots in this new sphere of ‘structured reality’, which is just college talk for ‘lying’. These people should be stripped for parts and never ever heard from again.

  • Ben Green

    good riddance, fewer stereotypes for people to sneer at , especially when there are so many really talented young women in liverpool.

  • Ceri Edwards

    Will there be a sequel? The only way is across the river I’m not a scouser? Just to add to the controversy…

  • Kate Appleton

    thank fuck for that

  • Fenton Bell

    Can’t tell you how happy I am this has been canned!

  • md6511

    @7streets thank god, that programme was shit

  • Algroves

    @7streets It was utterly dogshit!

  • VindalooQueen

    @7streets praise the lord!! the acting was a mix between school play and brookie circa 1997!

  • VindalooQueen

    Something in the style of Cold Feet would be good- did wonders for Manchester!
