Suggested correction: Didn't they get married on 6th April, Stacey's dad's 50th birthday?

Episode Four - S2-E4

Factual error: The BBC One channel ident introducing the Six o'clock News is a real one, featuring swimming hippos, but in real life such a comical ident would never be used before a news bulletin.

Episode Two - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: Nessa goes home to Pam's house along with Stacey and Gwen, and in that scene you can see the tattoo on her arm of the Welsh dragon. If you focus enough you can see the dragon only has 3 legs, whereas the Welsh dragon has 4 legs, as does her tattoo usually. Both writer Ruth Jones and director Christine Gernon confirmed this on an outtakes special.
