Gay dads in McCain ad abused by trolls
A CORPSE was found on the set of a BBC drama about a serial killer.
Filming on Rellik was halted after the grim find turned Cambridge Heath Park in East London into a real crime scene.
Paterson Joseph, who plays a psychiatrist, said: “The crew arrived to film their own dead body and the police ce told them they weren’t able ble to, because they’d foundund a real dead body. It was bizarre, fact being stranranger than fiction.”
And the body find nd was just one of manyy real-life events that eerily mirrored the Rellik script. Joseph, 53, s said: “There were a lot of strangestra coincidences. Richard [ Dormer], who plays our main character, getting im impetigo and his face be being covered in blo blotches and b blemishes. “He got the same reaction as his actual character, who’s been scarred in an acid attack. We found that odd.
“Then there was the acid attacks which happened at the same time as we were filming ours. It’s a strange show when it brings out these coincidences.”

“It’s a mind-bender it really does twist your thinking. Rellik is dark but with humour. It’s graveyard humour but there’s a light tone in there.” kind of attitude exists in the 21st century. We’re proud of our little family and we have nothing to be ashamed of.”
Lee and Mat, 31, who had Carter via a surrogate, agreed to the ad after a model agency run by a friend’s mum got in touch. They believed it would celebrate family diversity.
