  • Real-Life Relative: Jeff Rawle is married to Nina Marc, who in the show plays a woman trying to marry him to get a work Visa.

  • Writing by the Seat of Your Pants: The cast members confessed that most of their lines were actually written on the pieces of paper and clipboards that they were forever looking at during each episode. This was because scripts were written so close to transmission in order to keep it topical, that they often didn't have time to learn all their lines before shooting began.
