Watford High Street stars in new TV drama, "My Mad, Fat Teenage Diary", on E4 last night
Watford’s High Street was thrown under the TV spotlight - admittedly only briefly - during the first episode of a new Channel Four series.
A film crew and actors were spotted shooting a scene for "My Mad, Fat Teenage Diary" back in July, and the episode was aired last night at 10pm on E4.
The drama series is about an overweight teenager in mid 90s Lincolnshire and during the hour long episode, Sharon Rooney, who stars as the heroine Rae, is forced to evacuate a clothes shop near Burger King in Watford High Street while wearing a bikini.
The 16-year-old has only just been released from a psychiatric unit, where she lived for four months, and is desperately trying to fit in with her old friend Chloe and her new gang.
The programme was adapted from the real-life diary of Rachel 'Rae' Earl, and the book of the same name.
