Everywhere White Lines was filmed in Greater Manchester and Spain

Here’s where it was all filmed…

Published

Netflix

With much anticipation, White Lines came to Netflix a few weeks ago featuring a big dose of sun, sea and Mancunian charm.

If you’ve watched it, chances are it’s got you dreaming about stepping off the plane in Ibiza. Not that we all need much more convincing to be day dreaming about a holiday right now.

The 10-part thriller was shot in both Greater Manchester and Spain, and features the iconic red brick houses and warehouse-chic city crossed with golden sands and glorious blue seas of Spain.

Many of the Manchester scenes, you might be surprised to find out, were actually filmed in Bolton, while a lot of the Ibiza scenes were shot in Mallorca.

Mayfield Depot, Manchester

Like Manchester, one of the biggest parts of White Lines is music. There’s a whole host of top tracks throughout, including those by Primal Scream, Sub Sub and the Happy Mondays.

There’s a whole scene shot in Mayfield Depot for an illegal party. It’s now a massive gig space for the city. 

Netflix

Eustace Street, Bolton

This is the Manchester street where the young boys are chatting before their court appearance in episode two. But it’s actually a street in Bolton. 

Netflix

Woodgate Street, Bolton

This street depicts the exterior to Clint’s house throughout the whole series, again this is located in Bolton just around the corner from the street above.

Despite being set in Ibiza, episode one involves finding Axel’s body. This is found in the desert after a freak rain storm shifts the sand and exposes his hand.

One of the shows most stunning properties is actually in Cala D’or a small town on the east coast of Mallorca. The location is used throughout the series but is mostly seen in episode one.

Camp de Mar, Mallorca

There’s a couple of scenes that were actually filmed in Mallorca, including the one where Marcus is seen driving to the beach and walking over a bridge to a bar. The bar is a real place in Camp de Mar.

In another scene, while searching for Axel’s killer, Zoe stays with Boxer in the club where he lives. The front of the club is in Mallorca while the interior was filmed in an undisclosed club in Madrid.

Gogglebox’s Tom Malone Jr responds to rumours about why he left the show

He’s now left the show

Published

on

Channel 4

Tom Malone Jr confirmed yesterday that he’s leaving Gogglebox, after becoming a firm favourite on the show alongside his very Mancunian family.

Tom took to Twitter to announce that he is leaving Gogglebox for good, thanking Channel 4 and Studio Lambert for his time on the popular show.

The 26-year-old is part of the much-loved Malone family from Manchester, who joined Gogglebox back in 2014, with dad Tom Senior and mum Julie starring alongside Tom Jr and Shaun.

Tom Sr and Julie have two more children, Lee and Vanessa, although the older siblings have never appeared on the show.

While Tom Jr has officially departed the show, he confirmed that his family will remain on Gogglebox for future seasons – much to everyone’s delight.

He announced the news on Twitter, saying: “So after six years it’s finally time to put down the remote and say goodbye to Gogglebox.

“I’ve loved every minute and I’m eternally grateful to Channel 4 and Studio Lambert for allowing me to be a part of the show. But new opportunities are knocking on the door and it’s time to explore them.

“I look forward to enjoying the show as a viewer and not having to worry about having said something stupid! P.S. Don’t worry my parents and my brother will still be on the show to keep you guys entertained every Friday.”

He later returned to Twitter to respond to rumours about why he left the show, tweeting: “Just to clear a few things up: I didn’t ‘Quit’ the show… I left on good terms.

“My girlfriend never even wanted to be on the show and had nothing to do with me leaving. I wasn’t scared to say something stupid.

“Anyone spouting these narratives are spreading fabrications.”

While Tom has yet to reveal what new opportunities he’ll be exploring, his dance career is on the up so there’s likely a very bright future ahead of him, and we wish him all the best.

Gogglebox is returning to our screens for a new series tonight at 9pm on Channel 4.

Married at First Sight is looking for single Mancunians for the new UK series

Fancy it?

Married at First Sight UK is looking for single Mancunians for the new series!

The Australian version of the show has been providing much entertainment for many throughout lockdown with shocking reveals and endless drama.

Now, the series is returning to the UK – and you can apply! 

Normally, in the past five series of Married at First Sight UK, the programme follows the couples separately on their journey to meeting each other. Then, we follow their first meeting on the aisle, their honeymoon and finally if they decide to stay married. 

However, the sixth season is set to be a little different. 

Leaning more towards the Australian format, the couples will no longer take part in a legally binding marriage and instead have a commitment ceremony. 

The new series will also move to E4 from Channel 4 and undergo a huge makeover. 

A statement by E4 explained: “Following the Australian format, rather than legal marriages, the couples will make a lifelong commitment to one another at a glamorous ceremony, overseen by a wedding celebrant, that includes guests, bridal gowns, dancing, speeches and cake.

“After the ceremony and celebrations are over, true love is well and truly put to the test, as they embark on a luxurious honeymoon, before moving in with each other AND their fellow couples.

“Relationships will be put under the microscope, by fellow brides and grooms at weekly dinner parties – as well as by the experts, at recurring commitment ceremonies, where couples choose whether they want to stay in or leave the process.

“All this and more will build to a dramatic series finale: glossy, high-stakes vow renewals, in which each couple must decide if they will recommit to their partner or go their separate ways.”

Lee McMurray, Commissioning Editor, Factual Entertainment, said: “I’m thrilled to be refreshing one of the portfolio’s most popular brands for E4, bringing extra scale and ambition to what is already one of the most audacious and provocative experiments on television, and delivering what we hope will be the most exciting series yet.”

If you’re single and willing to take on the thorough application process which includes a headshot and video, you can apply here.

Applications are closing soon so be quick!
