The Fried Chicken Shop

Channel 4 at 9:00pm (Other show times...)

The Fried Chicken Shop

After the success of the one-off Cutting Edge documentary, The Fried Chicken Shop: Life in a Day, this documentary returns to Rooster Spot in Clapham, south London, for a three-part series that delves even deeper into the world of fried chicken, the staff who serve it and the huge variety of customers who buy it.

All walks of life cross in the Fried Chicken Shop as people tell their life stories, friendships are formed and love and laughter spill out into the early hours.

In this first episode Rooster Spot is a hub for love and relationships. Shop workers Imran and Harris talk about their bigger ambitions and the friendship they have formed since they both moved from Pakistan, and Harris declares his budding love for an Italian waitress. On the other side of the counter, cross dresser Jessie treats customers to her interesting and sexy style of dress.

After an afternoon drinking on the Common, fine art students CeeCee and Lulu discuss being lonely and single and how fast food over home cooked is frowned upon in Arabic culture. And Tyrone and Leah talk babies and love over chips and whether they are ready to take the next step.

As well as the fixed cameras inside the shop, the programme follows take-away customers. Local recording artist Ray must remember a big order to take back to the studio; does he pay attention or just get want he wants?

Back in the shop, Tyrone and Leah return with some exciting news; Jonny attempts some far-fetched chat-up lines on some unsuspecting girls; and Marco the busker sings a chicken shop ditty... it's just another day in South London's busiest chicken shop.
