Emotional viewers thank BBC for eye-opening drama Three Girls

Three Girls BBC Drama

Three Girls BBC Drama

Rowbotham worked for a specialist sexual health support service advising young people vulnerable to child sexual exploitation, and the horrifying case exposing a widespread child sex ring in the city took over her life entirely.

The first episode, which aired last night, recapped the harrowing abuse that three girls faced from a gang of mostly-Pakistani men.

But if Detective Constable Maggie Oliver and the police team can persuade the girls to revisit the horror they suffered remains to be seen.

Viewers commended Molly for her "amazing" and "outstanding" acting in Three Girls.

One viewer tweeted: "Powerful and incredibly shocking TV".

The Rochdale child sex abuse ring involved underage teen girls from Rochdale, Greater Manchester, and saw 12 men convicted of sex trafficking and other offences including rape and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child, on 8 May 2012.

The drama will look at the way in which these girls were groomed, how they were ignored by the authorities directly responsible for protecting them, and how they eventually made themselves heard. "No one." Asked by Nadia Sawalha how she was feeling, Lisa replied defiantly: "It's not about me, it's about the girls". I am so honoured to have been able to play the part of Lorna and give these girls a voice, because no one believed them. "But she is fearless enough to go through it again with us to film it".

Her breakthrough role came at age 11 in Samantha Morton's TV film The Unloved, in which she played another abused child.

She told Screen Daily: "I was going through the education system and college". I got angry and I got more angry.

When is Three Girls on? "I just can not comprehend how those young, vulnerable girls were continually failed".

"Especially in episode three. there's a bunch of EDL types outside the courtroom, one of whom racially abuses Nazir Azfal, the head of the CPS in the North West, thinking he's a perpetrator".
