The only real reason to watch BBC1’s Divided We Stand, a comedy about a warring greengrocer and his wife living in separate parts of the house divided by a wall, was to spot the lapses in the accents.

Originally the series was to have been set in Liverpool, but what with the Breadfamily, Cilla Black and other invaders from outer Mersey seeming to take over our screens it was changed to Birmingham.

Between the ‘Yow’s and the ‘ectually’s there were a lorra gaffs.
