I've seen computers used. The Millers and Sonia from Eastenders, Danny from Emmerdale, it's Mac he has!! Those fit girls on Hollyoaks, all students, have been seen on screen with computers. Neighbours too, some of the kids, Toady, Max and stingray etc etc.
You used the word 'addicted' that implies hooked on PCs for hours like me.
eastender bahh hunbug watched it noticed that alot of the footage is shot in NW london wrong side of the city to me should have called it westenders. If they portrayed real life there it wouldent even get on tv.
