I'm feeling a bit dumb right now. Despite being a regular viewer of the programme I have only just realized that Freya's and her older sister Lois are played by the same actress. She has lost a lot of weight and is looking terrific.

Anyone else want to own up to not realizing??

I have never watched it.

I sometimes watch it after watching the news at lunch time and have to quickly switch it off or I would become addicted.

It can get a bit silly at times. I don't make a point of watching. It's just on at the time I'm sitting down for lunch.

Charleygirl I'm sure 1000's haven't either smile

Whenever I'm trying to sort out some mix up at our surgery I always point out that it's not a bit like Doctors. It always causes great hilarity among the receptionists - can it be that Doctors is not true to life?

I've a sneaky addiction to it. It's the sort of thing you crave if you're at home but don't miss. I looked up Freya' s sister in the credits and it is, indeed, the same actress, very much slimmed down. Daft storyline though. I think somehow it will end in tears.

And the Karen story: what a load of **!

So not true to life smile but then it is classed as a 'soap'

Yes, the whole "Karen thing" is annoying now.
