A Girl Thing

‘IF you have been reading the Sun recently, you’ll know that tonight is a very special night on The Bill.

Girls in blue

No, Reg Hollis isn’t about to find himself a girlfriend, but Debbie is about to rescue Juliet from a suspected rapist – and find herself caught in a passionate lesbian clinch.

Ever since Beth Jordache kissed Margaret on Brookside, TV producers have known that a bit of girl-on-girl action is the surest way to get a programme column inches in the tabloid press.

EastEnders quickly followed Brookside’s lead; Buffy ratings in the US went through the roof when Willow and Tara shared a kiss; and lesbian drama Tipping The Velvet monopolised the TV pages of the re-tops for weeks.

Whatever its appeal, lesbian sex on TV is a hit with viewers, most of whom one suspects are men living out their fantasies on the screen.

So expect record ratings for tonight’s visit to Sun Hill nick (which is, incidentally, fast becoming a retirement home for soap actors).’
