This programme contains some violent scenes, very strong language from the start

and scenes which some viewers may find disturbing.

He would never have come to Nottingham if it had been up to him. You get that a lot.

"Fate f***ed me over."




We were like sisters should be.

We were like the sisters people mean when they say two people are like sisters.

He bought us drinks. Um, he was wearing a denim jacket.

I said "Ignore him," but she said, "Why?"


- We were playing pool. He came over.

He said "Don't worry, I'm a priest."

She thought that was funny.

He said, um, the drinks were for two nuns who hadn't turned up.

She laughed. She said, "Would WE do?"

He wanted to put his name down.

Erin picked up the drink and drank it in a way that meant, yeah, he could.

Stefan. S-T-E-F-A-N.

I mean, I have done stuff.

Just cos I've done stuff, that don't mean... My nephew's getting christened today.

I'm supposed to be his godfather.

He'll have no godfather now.

We had the same tattoos. We were getting another one.

"When the sun shines, we shine together,

"told you I'll be here for ever."

She had sensitive skin.

She needed a couple of drinks first, and that's why we were in The Royal.

Look, I HAVE done stuff. I never said that I haven't done stuff.

- I'll f***ing show you, then, you f***ing prick!

- Argh!

But that does not mean that I did this.

She lent me her purse to buy pizza.

No comment.

No comment.

Look, they asked me over to play pool!

I-I was minding my own business!

I shouldn't even have f***ing been there.

I said, "Just ignore him." She should've ignored him, like I said.

You know, my mum warned me about Nottingham.

"Always grief," she said, "Nottingham."

She said, "It's there, look, right there, start of the word - 'Not'."

I remember that.



We lived together. Always.

Almost always.

Flat 4/5, Caxton House, Vernon Road, Basford, Nottingham.

- Since we were kids.


'Since we were kids.'


The chalk squeaked when he wrote his name.

I said it was "winner stays on".

Erin's the dead one.

She was looking at me.

Yeah, she'd look down the pool cue, and then just before she potted the ball,

there'd be a little look up at me. WOMAN LAUGHS

And they could play, both of them.

He was just minding his business at the bar.

And this pretty girl playing pool kept giving him the eye.

So he gets them a couple of drinks and he goes over.

'The youngest one, Coleen, she didn't want me there.'

He thought he was funny. A "priest."

"Very dry," he kept saying.

Everything that Erin said, he said it was "very dry."

I said, "Don't forget we're going for these tattoos."

The younger one wanted to go,

the older one didn't fancy it, the tattoo.

So, you know, he was being gentlemanly.

He kept on buying her drinks. Us.

So then Erin says, "Let's go and get some pizza."

It must have been, I don't know, 7pm?

Erin said, "Anything, as long as it's not pizza."

She didn't like going in there cos the bloke was a knob.

But Stefan grabbed her bag and went in.

- Didn't want to go in. "Would

- I

- go in?" Gives me her purse, right?


So, when he came out, she said, "Give it back."

And he said, "I'll give it back at the flat."

So he knew our address cos he'd seen it on her licence.

She said, "Let's sit here, at the bus stop."

He said, "No, the flat."

He walked off with her bag and the pizzas.

I had a really bad feeling.

They weren't laughing now.


In the lift, it all went quiet.
