CELEBS IN MUTINY AT VIP FLATS

THE creator of hit TV show Shameless wants his star neighbours to revolt over conditions at their luxury apartment block.

Paul Abbott claims rubbish chutes stink and lifts rarely work - and has asked soccer aces Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville to help him fight landlords.

Other neighbours he has written to include Man United's Wes Brown, Everton's Phil Neville and Corrie stars Helen Worth and Shobna Gulati.

Paul, 45, said people in the 12-storey Manchester block, which has £1.4million flats, paid an average £5,700 in annual charges but received poor service.

He added: "The window cleaning seems non-existent, rubbish chutes smell and parking's diabolical."

The writer, also behind hit 90s show Clocking Off, said boilers often failed and security was lax.

He wants to form a residents' committee and later said: "The residents are 100 per cent behind me." One confirmed: "A lot of us agree with him."

CB Richard Ellis, the firm that runs the building, refused to comment.

LOL.

Makes the mind boggle what some of the BTL fodder stuff must be like - maybe we've not actually heard many complaints about them becuse there are no buggers living in them - or not long enough to bother.

Heh, it's the Emperor's New Clothes.

They expect to live in these places, they just don't get it do they? These places were not designed or built for people to live in, they are simply objects for speculation much like chips at the casino. When reality dawns they will see that they're little more than council flats, except in even dingier locations, half the size and not even to the standards of the finest 60's system built tat.

In short they are the slums of tomorrow, today.

I knew a 'celeb'in a famous soap - earnt £100k a year and snorted it all up his nose to end up pennyless. They are really all a bunch of prats these people. Money slips from their fingers.....

Well if it is the flats shown all I can say is they would have been better to put themselves on the council waiting list (I hear it short for rubbish in Manchester). That way they could be paying 80 quid a week for this sort of quality.

Isn't that link basically the BBC blatently advertising that development, thinly (very thinly) disguised as some sort of story about Manchester's redevelopment.

It's almost like "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" done on the cheap.

Probably done to help keep moral high at the beeb once they were all told they would have to relocate up to Manchester.

"Yes I know you don't want to move up to Manchester but just look the house prices are just as high as London up there so it must be a great place to live."

Gary Neville can always run up to the managing agents, pump his fists and kiss his badge in excited fashion, actions which he believes pass for normal behaviour of a 30 year old male

hhahahhahahahaha, like it.

Manchester is crap I live here, it has one thing though EVERYWHERE you go on holiday is better than home.
