Pubs still being open in the soaps?!

[Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 1,651 Listener

We're all in lockdown, yet in Coronation St, Emmerdale and Eastenders the Pubs are all open! OK I get the latest episodes were probably filmed pre all 3 lockdowns but aren't soaps supposed to represent real life?

    They're not real pubs, it's all on a set.

    The way the rules and regulations change, you couldn't expect them to reflect all changes in filming, they would be changing something every day!

    I used to watch all the soaps then all of a sudden 4 years ago i thought wow i'm wasting too much time on them and gave them all up the same week. I never bought into the real life e.g Corrie had and still has I assume 1 pub a corner shop and a newsagents in one street really? Our whole village only has that.

    I hope they're not supposed to represent real life... I must lead a very boring life if so!  :D

    I'm surprised they're still open now though, I thought they were being filmed pretty close to the air date now.  I used to watch every episode of EastEnders until Covid started...have only seen one or two of the more recent ones.
