After 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.
