    • Goof: Jackie said that, after the accident which had crippled her and her sister, their mum was killed the following summer at the Lord Mayor's Show (crushed by a Green Cross Code float). This cannot be right because the Lord Mayor's Show has been held in November since 1751.

    • The judges here, Pete Waterman, Nicki Chapman and Neil Fox were all judges on Pop Idol, a real talent show that was incredibly popular in Britain in 2001.

    • Only Soapstar Superstar has its full title left intact in the name of this show. This particular ITV show was so poor, it was axed after only two seasons.

    • The show's name is a combination of several reality TV talent shows including Britain's Got Talent, Pop Idol, The X Factor, Soapstar Superstar, Strictly Come Dancing and Dancing on Ice.
