Three Girls praised as 'hard-hitting' and 'eye-opening' drama by viewers

"Brilliantly told from the perspective of the victims", said another.

At least 47 young girls were sexually abused, raped and trafficked by a group of nine men who were all jailed for child sex offences. Molly Windsor, Liv Hill and Ria Zmitrowicz feature as a trio of girls drawn into the frightening world of sexual exploitation.

The hard-hitting watch, which was made with full approval and co-operation of the victims involved in the case, stars the hugely talented Lesley Sharp, Maxine Peake, Jill Halfpenny and Lisa Riley - who on Thursday's Loose Women, got emotional as she discussed playing the role of Lorna Bowen- a mother of two of the victims.

Police said the victims were from "chaotic", "council estate" backgrounds and as many as 50 girls could have been victims of the gang. In a moving scene Rowbotham then tells the First Dates camera why she's on the show.

Others were also horrified by whistle-blower Sara Rowbotham's treatment, as after years of painstakingly recording details of the crimes and fighting to get the police and social services to take notice, she was made redundant from her job as a sexual health worker.

Molly plays Holly Winshaw, who is a composite of several real-life victims of the Rochdale grooming scandal which horrified the nation in 2012.
