Episode 20: The Perfect Blend: The IVF Special with Peter Mattessi

On this episode we're joined by Peter Mattessi, scriptwriter for Neighbours and Eastenders. He tells us what goes on behind the scenes, reveals the storyline they won't let him write and explains how soaps have been forced to adapt to viewers' changing attitudes towards bums.


Peter also chats about his 15 month-old son, Artie, and his experiences of going through IVF. There's a lot of talk about cubicles and specialist magazines, basically.  


Helen introduces her brand new game - Awight Guvnor, Put Another Shrimp on the Barbie. Yes, it's just another excuse for her to attempt some funny foreign accents. And we finish up with some spectacular Scummy Mummy Confessions.


Thanks for listening! And if you'd like to see the Scummy Mummies live, there are still some tickets left for our Brighton Fringe show. It's at Upstairs at Three and Ten on Sat 10, Sun 11 and Bank Hol Mon 26 May, at 1pm. Tickets are £8.50 / £7 from the Brighton Fringe website.
