Three Girls wins praise for Rochdale abuse scandal portrayal

Three Girls concludes tonight at 9pm on BBC One. I hope they now have the support & lives they so deserve. A lot of the work focused on advocating to children's social care, housing providers, education, police, health and many other services on their behalf.

Former Emmerdale actress Lisa plays Lorna Bowen, a mother of one of the three victims depicted on the show. Those behaviours then became the issue and labels like "child prostitute" were bandied about.

"Three Girls is the most horrendous series I've ever watched but what an eye opener and well retold story", summarised Rachel Beckett.

Three Girls was written by Nicole Taylor, who said that the idea of far-right groups such as the English Defence League (EDL) using the programme to promote their cause had occurred to her but was "not a reason for silence". When the student reported this to the school, she was met with disbelief and the girls were branded as liars. That is why it is such a powerful piece of television.

Linda Robson commented on how firm they were, while Nadia Sawalha admitted she was impressed by how much she had achieved by diet and fitness alone.

Watching this series has evoked strong emotional reactions, including anger.

'Really happy at the response we've had from 3 girls, ' she tweeted. "Thanks to Sara Rowbotham who never gave up #three girls".

"It's important that the BBC took a chance because it could have gone one of two ways".

She said: "Mine has been digitally enhanced!"

Holly (Molly Windsor) is new in town and is desperate find her feet and make some new friends. "She was let down by the whole system, and we were part of that system".

"I'm coming out of a very hard, dark time". But we knew that remaining silent was not an option as it allows abuse and perpetrators to triumph.
