The show, filmed at the converted Beautique hairdressing salon on the corner of Scarth Avenue and Lister Avenue in Balby, has never made any secret of its northern roots but it has never explicitly stated in the programme that the show is set in Doncaster.

In an earlier episode, late South Yorkshire entertainer Barry Chuckle was featured sporting a Doncaster Rovers coat – despite being a lifelong Rotherham United fan.
