BBC ORDEAL The new BBC drama Three Girls focuses on the Rochdale child sex ring

Three Girls BBC Drama

Filming it late a year ago over two months, Lisa got to know the victims of the case, and was keen to tell their story. The story was so true. I am so honoured to have been able to play the part of Lorna and give these girls a voice, because no one believed them.

And since the victims were rebuffed and disbelieved before, why should they trust the police? "And the evidence was there".

As her relationship with her family fractures, Holly finds the courage to speak out, but will her nightmare finally end? As an actor, you're playing a part, but this is the truth.

Her career is still going strong, but not all women in their fifties feel the same way.

It is based on the 2012 scandal which saw nine Asian men prosecuted for offences including rape and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child.

Viewers commended the drama for its gritty depiction of the events and were impressed by the young actresses who played the three girls at the centre of the story - Holly (Molly Windsor), Ruby (Liv Hill) and Amber (Ria Zmitrowicz).

Trump administration confirms renegotiation of NAFTA
President Donald Trump's threats to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement are coming to fruition. Trump's decision to start the 90-day period comes a few weeks after he threatened to pull out of NAFTA.

Later in the show, former detective Maggie Oliver, who helped expose the sex ring and the failures of the police force in the process of investigation the victims' claims, appeared on the talk show to discuss her experience.

Some viewers used Twitter to laud the girls for their bravery.

"Especially in episode three. there's a bunch of EDL types outside the courtroom, one of whom racially abuses Nazir Azfal, the head of the CPS in the North West, thinking he's a perpetrator".

Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.

Three Girls continues on BBC One on Wednesday night at 9pm and concludes on Thursday night at 9pm.
