"Shameless", the BAFTA-award winning and brilliantly funny drama series from writer Paul Abbott, follows the rollercoaster lives and lovers of the Gallaghers, the Maguires, and all the lawless, loveable characters of the Chatsworth Estate.
Head of the Gallagher family, in name only, is Dad Frank - a feckless, charmless, self-pitying, unemployed bully - a model father. When Mum west AWO, Dad hit the bottle leaving his six remarkably well-balanced children Fiona, Lip, Ian, Debbie, Carl and Liam to fend for themselves. Local gangsters, the Maguires, continued to explode the myth of a conventional family as they are involved in all things dodgy on the estate.
