Friends Like These Inside Britain’s Legal Red Light District | Sex, Drugs & Murder – Episode 12


Oswell! Come here. He loves me to pieces. He goes to the bedroom,
he’s like my teddy bear. I can’t talk to my family
because we don’t talk. Sometimes you just need someone to
grab hold of you and just give you a big old love
and a big old shake, and say, “What the fuck are you doing?” Hello. You all right? You’re not looking
for business tonight? Are you sure? You have a good night. I wish that I were
at the top end of it still. You know, like the escort
in the better side of it, than down here at the bottom. I’ve worked in Next,
I’ve worked in Poundstretcher. I’ve always done bar work, as well. I’ve done work in the kitchens in
pubs, I’ve done door-to-door sales. I’ve done cleaning.
I’ve done all sorts. My childhood was perfect. My mum
did everything that she could. She did the best that she could
for me. You know, I didn’t have
a bad childhood. I don’t have no dramatic stories
or anything. I wasn’t abused. I didn’t get raped
by my uncle or nothing like that. Just thought, “I’ll try it.” I just put myself on it, stupidly. I did it to myself. Nobody did it to me,
nobody offered me it. I did it to myself, and two weeks
after, I had a habit, I was addicted. So, yeah. My drug use spiralled. I lost my house,
by not paying bills. And then, yeah. My friend who I came to live with
lived in Holbeck, and I moved in with her,
and that was, like, seven years ago. How long have we been friends
for, Ceri? For a good ten year. Just over ten year. Yeah? Wow. Time flies, doesn’t it,
when you’re having fun? I wouldn’t call it fun. I never seen you in a dress. You look lovely. You look lovely, it’s the first time
I’ve seen you a dress-skirt thing. Yeah. Me and Ceri, we’ve had… We’ve not always seen eye-to-eye,
but, yeah, she took me in
and she’s looked after me. She’s fed me and that,
do you know what I mean? She gave me clothes and that,
so that I could get changed. And do you know… We are friends,
if you get what I mean. Be careful, Amy, because
the fentanyl’s back in Beeston. So, just be careful
with the gear, mate. You know that fentanyl stuff? Few people have got that in Beeston,
so… You know, just be careful, Amy. Yeah, yeah. I got arrested because
I were wanted. Over one of the other
working girls. She’s put a report in about me,
hitting her or something. Which I didn’t. I could lose everything. Everything. I don’t just mean the place,
I mean everything, again. All my belongings, everything. I can’t understand it – it’s saying
it’s not available, the web page. Wi-Fi’s on,
it’s saying I’m connected. Connected, yeah. Wi-Fi available now. At last. What’s this one say? “Hi”, it says me name,
it says his name. It says where he’s from. “I drive. “Please check out me and my profile,
and feed back what do you think. “Fancy shitting on me? “I look forward to hearing
from you.” Well, £120 for the hour, you see. It’s a lot safer –
I feel it is, anyway, because I can pick
and choose my jobs. Do you know what I mean? Like, say
that weeing, pooing and vomiting, if I didn’t want to do that,
which I didn’t, the vomiting, I said that to him,
then you don’t have to. Do you know what I mean? He can say,
“Oh, well, it don’t matter, then,
I’ll go and see another person.” Do you know what I mean? You can’t
really pick and choose your guys
out on the street. My leg’s fucked. I’ve had DVT a few times. But, fucking getting abscesses. And it’s just fucking sore. It’s, like, I did one in my ankle
last week. I must’ve fucking missed in my leg. I must’ve pushed it in
when it wasn’t in t’vein. I must’ve done, for it
to have swollen up like that. This lad I know just says, “Oh,
can you watch my snake for a bit?” and he hasn’t been back for it. The mice. Three blind mice. You just leave it
to defrost for half an hour and then it fucking eats it. Cute, aren’t they? Feel sorry for them. It died cute. I’m going for the sports look today. He’s been driving around, though,
but he wants £10 for sex. He just spoke to me earlier. He was driving around up there, and then he pulled up to me,
and I went and spoke to him. And he was like, “Oh, £10 for sex
in your breast.” I says, “No, you’re all right.” Wouldn’t do that,
even when I’m rattling. I’m worth more than £10. I’m worth a lot more than £10,
I don’t care what anybody says. The first time I did it, it was… I don’t know, it was quite a buzz. I’d done it after a night
at lap dancing. And it was £200,
and it was 20 minutes. And I mean, lap dancing
is good money, but I mean, you can be all night long
for that money. Or you can go to an hotel
for an hour, and it’s never an hour. 20 minutes, half an hour tops
and you’re gone. It’s very rare that it’s an hour. Who lasts an hour? I could have loads of plans
in my head what I want to do and what I’m going to do, and then it just goes to pot,
like, I might have a Spice joint and then that’s it for me, isn’t it? I’m done for. I come
and seen you the other day, and I don’t think I left till
the next day, did I? No. I only came for ten minutes. I can’t believe
you’ve been charged, Bee. I don’t, really don’t understand it. That won’t come to nothing. It wants to not, cos otherwise
I’m going to jail. Fuck. So, you better
be writing to me. I just… I don’t understand it. Well, whoever it was working at CPS
that day obviously got out on the wrong side of bed, didn’t they?
Do you know why they said it? Yeah, that’s all right for her,
isn’t it? But I couldn’t do that cos the drugs
have ruined my body too much, and I’m covered in scars
and shit like that, so… ..it’d just be not appropriate. I just wouldn’t feel comfortable
doing it, and… ..I’m not much of a talker. It just wouldn’t flow out my mouth
smoothly, I feel. Well, yeah. Yeah, yeah. I’d much
rather just fucking give a blow job. If you don’t want to have
a conversation with him you don’t really have
a conversation, do you, doll? “Do you want me lay down
or bend over?” After ten minutes, “Are you going
to come or what?” We would be the only two girls
between four and six in the morning. Anyway, every morning without fail, there’d be no other girls,
would there? And we’d be dead opposite
each other, on each corner. And I found her a bit intimidating,
a bit scary. That were the word, yeah. No, but what it is like
with most of t’girls down there, the heroin and crack can make ’em do
things that they probably wouldn’t normally do, innit? Well, with all t’girls in general, I couldn’t fucking have
owt to do with ’em – they’re not my fucking cup of tea. It’s not someone I’d choose to go and have a coffee with.
Oh, thank you very much. I wasn’t talking about you. What about me, then,
if you weren’t on drugs? Would you still entertain me,
do you think? In small doses. I thought so. THEY LAUGH I was getting complaints over
the dog barking and that all t’time. It were pissing me off, it were too
big, it were making my house smell, dog hairs all over. Stinking my…
I didn’t want it on my furniture, do you know what I mean? I said to her, “Don’t have the dog
on the furniture.” I just got that pissed off. I was like, “Look, you’re going to
have to go and find somewhere else
for it to go, then.” And she was like,
“Oh, for fuck’s sake” and that, and she never came back. Yeah, I’m a bit pissed off that you
haven’t been to see me, though, Amy. Since, you know…. Well, um… I’m a bit pissed off that you haven’t been up,
and I’ve tried ringing you. Obviously you haven’t had your
phone. Yeah. You could’ve called up, or tried to get in touch with me
or whatever. Do you know what I mean? Yeah. I hadn’t had your number, but, um… People have seen you, though. Yeah. On t’beat, and whatever. I’ve been meaning to come up here
and see you, but I’ve just been sidetracked. Not been getting out of bed until,
like, six, seven o’clock. Yeah, no, I understand it. I get it.
I know where you’re at. Do you know what I mean?
I know where you’re at. But I didn’t tell YOU to leave, Amy. But I were getting in trouble. Yeah. And like I said, it’s not
worth losing my house over. A dog’s not worth
losing my house over. You lot wasn’t worth losing my house
over. You’re my mate – I would never
seen you out on the street. Yeah. But you could’ve come back. Yeah. The dog had fleas. Do you know what I mean? So, obviously, they’ve jumped
off out of the… living in the carpet
and whatever else. Look. Do you know what I mean? They’re flea bites. I can get rid
of them, I can get that home stuff, but I’d rather just get the council
to come and do it, and then just do it all
top to bottom. Do you know what I mean? So, anyway, while we’re on the subject
of this fumigation thing, though, I think that it’s only right
that you should give me something
towards it. Yeah. Well, I’ve just put a fiver
in your back pocket, so you can get some stuff with that. Have you? Yeah. Thanks. I am ready to give it all up,
but, you know what I mean, but… That’s drug use, ain’t it? It’s hard, it’s a bad cycle,
it’s a vicious cycle. It is nasty, very nasty. Very, very nasty. But you can’t help it. You still do it, as much as
you don’t want to be doing it, you’ll still do it. It’s not what we’re supposed
to be doing, really, is it? Standing on street corners
like pieces of meat, waiting for men to pick us. Do you know what I mean?

  1. I worry about Adel… She has spiraled down badly from when this show started. I pray she is okay a year down the line. Is there anyway of finding out how these girls are doing?

  2. I used to be addicted to Fentynyl for years but I finally ended up in the methadone program because I realized I needed help quitting and couldn't do it alone this time cuz I'd just keep going back to it. It's highly addictive and really dangerous and I'm lucky I'm not dead from an overdose. Almost 2 years sober now but watching this series has really taken me back through my past with addiction as well. This series is showing the reality of addiction and prostitution in the faces of these women. I hope for the best for all of them . 💖

  3. Legalize all drugs, control the quality and quantity, it then stops the criminal element, and the money the crims make could be used for helping those who really want help.

  4. This is the best channel im so invested in this….i feel for the women and thank of them often …this sends a powerful message

  5. I don't think any series has humanized the women who become prostitutes quite like this series. You end up wanting these girls to get out so badly. You just want to see them happy and healthy. God bless them all I so hope they find their way.
    On a side note I was unaware the is a segment of the population who likes to be shat upon. Did not know that.

  6. I too am so emotionally invested in this series. …
    I love the BBC for this one…I wanna know what happens next though. …it's the final episode for us not their lives. …

  7. I've been completely drawn in by this series. I actually saw Sammy Jo in Doncaster today… It was so weird seeing her in real life!

  8. Everyone always ends up going through x amount of random YouTube bouncing from one to the next. I started this around 6pm and watched them all back to back. What a series. Had your average judgments but it has humbled me. Really well done. Wish all the girls the best. If you like this try watching the scheme. Scottish estate 5 or so episode. Really good to.

  9. “I’m worth a lot more than 10 Pounds”

    I hate to say this but when you get to the point where you resort to selling yourself on the streets, I’m not sure if you have much worth left.

  10. Ceri reminds me of myself alot😔👌🏾 It's why I've never gone into anything deep like this people I know or anyone except professionals, me and are aware of it all but can't understand why we do it. Personally I'm not addicted to drugs like everyday but I use quite alot but I can stop to a point. Been out of control a few time with alcohol along drugs same time. I actually had a good childhood, happy. But as I got older past 16 it changed. Started of small and ended bigger. Then it was negative thoughts but happy then it progressed deeper dark depression. Then I realise some of it affects isolation in my family load of things, long life conditions I can't get rid of. I'm not a full on addict back last year or 2 I drank alcohol cause of my depression it escalated and drugs too (not heroin or crack). Been in dangerous situations, put myself in some purposely to escape and not know where I was. Then was spiked with a drink I robbed from bar, but intentionally wanted that to happen in my own way 😒 but things behind it. Prostituted myself a few times some on street and some in like meet ups/hang outs for money kinda like an escort. She reminds me of me cauee we aware of what standing on the street is like and men viewing us meat driving by, good childhood, she don't work sexually, everyday like me, appearance wise too. It's just sad really like I wanna change but like she said the lifestyle is a cycle of hate but can't get out of it and don't know how. I've had help and with my mental health, but I feel like I flush it away even tho I appreciate the help. Don't know what's wrong with me😭

  11. But I have massive respect to all of the ones that live lives like this well basically I don't shame, disrespect, judge ❤️🙏🏽💯

  12. What i don't understand is… why have a dog and try to take care of that responsibility, when, you can't even take care of yourself, or if your kids have been taken away! Wtf is wrong with people's thinking? Your kids get taken away! YOUR kid's! But you go and get a dog!?? W.T.F.? RIDICULOUS. 🤔🤔🤔

  13. Not the dog fault where the dog ? Really piss me off people on drug having animals neglecting. Worry about ur drug. Poor animals

  14. Adele just out of control looks a messy . Give the another woman handle the stuff bit better . Adele loss her mind

  15. The worst part of heroin addiction is the sickness they get when they don’t get their next fix. It’s the worst part of being a heroin addict. That is the main reason why so many people on heroin struggle getting off it. I hope one day all these girls have a new and better life.

  16. It might be legal but what a terrible and dangerous job. So much pain and sadness in their eyes. Awful.

  17. This is just a side bit but Ceri was saying a dog was stinking her house up yet she smokes cigarettes and drugs in her home. That's gotta stink to high heavens!

  18. punter: “..fancy shitting on me? looking forward to hearing from ya!”

    bee: looks up @ camera w/ simultaneous hair flip :- | well…
    😂😂

  19. If they dont die from this lifestyle it'll surely be lung cancer or throat cancer 😩 they literally smoke like chimneys

  20. im sorry, not one heroin addict on here has even got a vicodin high look to them…. they dont nod off. idk it seems like it isnt fetynyl or heroin, at all. im confused on wed afternno. on episode 10

  21. Ok with the judgy comments just because these women do drugs and sell their coin purses and do scholarships for a living does not mean insult them they are still human beings PERIOD!! Just Rude and the universe has a way of teaching ppl alot about themselves when they spew hate into the world so wtbs how some are joking and bein rude by commenting a lot of the ridiculous comments you have commented….That could be you and the roles reversed one day!!!!….Think before you type!! 🙄🤦🏽‍♀️ The Ignorance!

  22. Ceri, to me, is absolutely beautiful, imagine how she would look now if she was sober. I wish she could see that. She does have self worth, so I don't know how she doesn't see it. I think she would do well in rehab because, as she said, she isn't hiding from anything! That's very unusual, to just start taking heroin when she had absolutely no reason to. I hope she is doing well now.

  23. Wot a sad sad circle untill u experience this evil directly or a loved 1 I dont think u can relant my advice wud be every1 hits rock bottom every1 rock bottom is all different but wen your bottom truely hits b4 u end up in hospital on blood thiners about 2 loose a limb the only way is up and the climb up is hard but well worth it inner strength gud luck gals in my prays x

  24. What looks like took months to film and a day for me to watch… these ladies was just doing down hill . Sad how drugs can make a person look so much older. Poor sammi Jo I believe while time filming this she was only 28/29 had her 30 birthday filing these series Woooow.

  25. Y’all act like y’all ain’t never seen a mixed girl before smh then again I’m not there, I am in the States. I bet she’s taking the competition away 😂 but why do they call it gear? And money, quid?? 🤔

  26. When Ceri said “I’m worth more than ten pounds, I don’t care what anybody says”, my heart broke for her.
    Ceri, you are worth more than any amount of money that anyone could ever offer you, sweetheart! ❤️

  27. It never shows your woman bee taking gear so I have to think why is she on the game? Surely any job is better than being on the gear

  28. It would be safer for them to go to the strip club and get a job as a stripper. They would make more money and don't have to be on the street and its safer. Being a prostitute is so dangerous! People don't have any regard for life now a days. They will kill you and leave you for dead and go on to next one😕😕😕

  29. I can't figure out where the Sex, drugs & ((murder)) part came from?? I get the sex & drugs, but i haven't seen any murder?? or, Maybe i missed an episode 😕

  30. I wouldn’t do any of them, I couldn’t even get a semi wood. They need to clean themselves and their apartments up.

  31. Clean two years cocaine and alcohol. It was hell on earth for me but I’m under no
    Illusion that if I would of stayed using it wouldn’t of been long before I wound up on herion and crack and on the streets just like these woman you can’t look down on herion and crack users when you use cocaine and alcohol all drugs are evil

  32. I pray all these women are ok to this day. They battle and struggle to survive everyday. They are all so strong and beautiful. God protect them.

  33. This is sooo sad but it is reality !!! Its happening every hour of the day!!! Wat these girls have to put up with an have to deal with is horrible Ways of life but its a hard merry go round to get off!! Much love 💕 luck an golden healing girl s be safe as possible love 💕 to u all 💕💕🦋🇦🇺

  34. that girl ceria is beautiful soul an if you was in us even with ya past baby girl I'd try show ya there is man that love an care for you an keep you wanting to be clean an sober
