This is Samantha ‘Smamfa’ Womack (not of Womack & Womack) nee J.Anus leaving a… let’s just call it ‘TV programme’ called EastEnders.
Apparently, she was so shocked at the storyline she was given – child dies in cot death, she nicks someone else’s child, which seems pretty much par for the course in soapsville to us – that she upped and left. Out she was. Never to be seen no more (except in the presence of her lawyers).
Her Majesty’s Stately BBC meanwhile received 6,000 (count them!) complaints about the storyline. Some of those people hadn’t even watched the show!
So, there you have it: murder, rape, homophobia (but never racism), domestic violence, more murder, madness, mayhem and mohair all OK. Cot death? How very dare you!
