Shameless 2007

LIFE continues as normal on the Chatsworth estate in the New Year.
The new series of Shameless is set to begin on Channel 4 in January, but there will be some changes.
Residents of Manchester’s most notorious estate have two new cops to contend with when smart and sexy Carrie (Amanda Ryan) and Tom (Michael Legge) arrive.
TV bosses revealed details of the 2007 series when Channel 4 launched its winter season of programmes yesterday.

The Gallaghers have teamed up with local gangster family the Maguires.
After a stint in prison, Jamie Maguire (Aaron McCusker) returns and sparks fly with barmaid Karen (Rebecca Atkinson).
Then there are Jamie’s brothers – not-so bright Shane (Nicky Evans) and Micky Maguire (Ciaran Griffiths), a wannabe hard man struggling with his own secrets.
Back at the Gallaghers’, Frank (David Threlfall) is sent into a spin when mum Monica (Annabelle Apsion) turns up, claiming to be back for good.
Surely the house isn’t big enough for her and Sheila (Maggie O’Neill)?
Lip (Jody Latham) is juggling with parenting, and Ian (Gerard Kearns) is looking for love.
Carl’s (Elliott Tittensor) busy on a secret crime spree, while Debbie (Rebecca Ryan) decides to interview potential boyfriends.
Carol (Marjorie Yates) is still having trouble keeping her mouth shut, while Kash (Chris Bisson) is happy screwing the council.
And what is the connection between Kev, Veronica, Marty, Sue and a Romanian baby?
*Shameless actor Gerard Kearns also stars in controversial new C4 drama The Mark Of Cain about a group of young soldiers in Iraq.
He plays an 18-year-old private serving on his first tour of duty in Basra in 2003, who later returns home with trophy photos of Iraqi detainees which provoke extreme reactions.
Feb 19 2007 update: Due to popular demand (see comments below), here’s a pic of Aaron McCusker as Jamie Maguire:

    Is Fiona coming back in series 4 cos she’s the best. She makes the show, and kev and veroica can’t leave surely.

  3. Ian Wylie

    Adam – Fiona isn’t coming back, and Kev and Veronica have already left when the new series begins.

  4. Chris

    is fiona coming back in series 4 along with steve and are kev and veronica not in it at all ??

  5. Ian Wylie

    Chris – there are no plans for Fiona to come back and Kev and Veronica have now left the series. Also no plans at the moment for them to come back.

  6. Helen

    I can’t believe Kev and Veronica have left for good……It’s not the same. I doubt if I’ll watch it from now on, especially if Sheila goes aswell…..what have they done to the show!

  7. ian

    God damn, it seems like this show is losing all its best characters…

  8. ceejay

    Shamelesss has to be the best programme on air at the moment – does anyone know if there is to be a series 5?

    Is there any reference to Fiona’s baby in this series as it seemed to have been forgotten in series 3 – and will craig make a re-appearance at any news?

  25. Ian Wylie

    Westie – the scheduling of the next series, when it’s made, is up to Channel 4. But I understand the new series will be extended with more episodes. Repeats tend to turn up later in the year of original transmission.
    Louise – see the reply I made to Charlotte on Feb 21.

  26. Westie

    Yes, I also watched next weeks episode on E4… and cannot wait to get another chance this Tuesday… Thanks for the reply re: repeats, ill have to keep my eyes open, hopefully they wont take too long and guessing they will be shown on E4…

    Lucy – the new series of Shameless, probably to be screened early next year, will be 16 episodes long, with another series also planned after that. All filmed on a new purpose built set, enabling more eps to be made.

  45. Kirsty Jane Garvey

    Like The Bill shown weekly, are there any plans for shameless to follow i’m sure the ratings show it would it would kock the other soaps off. It’s a long time to wait yearly, for each new series.

  46. Ian Wylie

    Kirsty – I don’t think Channel 4 has any plans to turn Shameless into a more regular soap, but at least the number of episodes is being doubled. So the wait between series may not be as long as before.

  47. I love the show because of jamie – he is so sexy and lovely.

  48. natalie

    I think jamie from shameless is well sexy.

  49. Miriam

    I love Shameless. It’s the best show on T.V….such great acting..and I was so moved by the last episode in series 4. I really like the new characters (yes Jamie is very pleasing to the eye) but I miss Sheila. Are there ever any auditions for this show??????

  50. Miriam

    How do you audition for this show?

  51. Ian Wylie

    Miriam – I don’t know, but you can find the contact details for the company which produces Shameless here:

  58. sophie

    hia, i read in the papers that one of the maguires has been sent down for life in real life but not sure which one and not sure if its true, does any one know if its true and whch one it is if it is ??

  59. Ian Wylie

    Sophie – Michael Skeffington, 19, was jailed for life at Manchester Crown Court for stabbing a man to death. The story was reported in Saturday’s (July 21) MEN. But he was never a main character in Shameless. From memory, if he appeared at all it was on the fringes as an extra.
