Footballers' Wives is better then a lot of the crap that comes out of America these days. The show is best described as one of the most scandalous series aired ever where nothing goes untouched.

The action is based around the lives of the stars of a fictional premiership football team 'Earls Park'. Whilst the players themselves are outrageous, the behavior of their wives and girlfriends is beyond words....these women are cold hearted and ruthless, and will do anything to succeed, whether it be in terms of column inches or in order to bed the latest young star.

The characters are consumed by the wealth they get from their careers at the club, but their lives are also rife with manipulation, double-crossing, lying and cheating. The show drags you in with its steamy story lines, outrageous twists of fate and crazy cliffhangers, cat-fights

The show makes Melrose Place, Desperate housewives, Models INC. look like the Brady bunch.

Now with 4 series been under the shows belt, the series has become a cult hit across the globe.

The series has some of the UK's finest actors including Zoe Lucker (Tanya), Ben Price (Conrad), Alison Newman (Hazel).

Did you know that the series has been filmed on location in Thailand and Spain, When Tanya goes to HMP Larkhall prison for grade A drug possession she actually appears in series 6 of Bad Girls. The wives clothing is supplied by Versace, Robert Cavalli and Dolce and Gabbana. The stars on the show often buy some of the outrageous and simply glamorous costumes once filming has been completed.

The show is filmed on location in Chipstead FC

Rearranging the letters of 'Footballers' wives' gives: " We boil fast, lovers "

Tanya turner played by Zoe Lucker has to be one of the best villains to be in a drama series to date.

Must see COMPULSORY TV viewing at its best !!!!!
