Eastenders Peggy - What Have You Done!

  • I think it's good to see them showing how easy it is to get into a debt nightmare.
    Whilst I kind of agree, there is part of me that just does not want to see another debt storyline - I live it, I want to escape it by watching TV, not be reminded. Also, debt storylines always end up with a quick simple solution, no matter how bad it was to start with, and I sit and think - I wish it were as easy for me :(

    BB - my sister in law visits on Monday evenings and she wanted to watch/listen to it and in the end I had to leave her to it cos I kept saying "CAB, CCCS, National debtline, !!!!!! check out MSE". Upset the SIL a bit!

    I must admit to being quite chuffed when I was told that when the soap was being reviewed on GMTV... and Soap Queen Tina Baker was talking about Peggy...

    On the strap at the bottom it said "Peggy Mitchell needs Martin Lewis!"
