Hammersmith and Fulham LBC is under pressure from residents to ban TV presenter Chris Evans from filming his show TFI Friday in a studio near their homes, the London Standard reports (p14).
Tenants say that the show, made at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith by Evans's company Ginger TV, is responsible for traffic hold-ups and attracting young drunks to the area. 'The venue is unsuitable and too big for the very small road', one resident said.
A spokesman for the council said action would be taken against the programme-makers if filming caused a serious nuisance to residents.
'TFI Friday is a lively programme catering for a young, outgoing audience - but there are limits to the antics which can be tolerated in a built-up residential area,' he told the paper.
