Friday 1 April , 8: When the scripts for Candy Cabs landed on my doormat - well, pinged in my inbox - I read them in one go, laughed, cried, read them again to make sure I wasn't dreaming, then said out loud to myself - I have to play this part! Candy Cabs is bold, bright, beautiful and aspirational. A deliberate move away from the "it's grim up north" approach. We filmed in some glorious settings; Lymm in Cheshire - a gorgeous, friendly village, and West Kirby which provided our seafront shots and some of the best ice cream I've tasted!

Candy Girl: Jo Joyner strips off for her weekly weigh-in as she stars as all-female cab company boss in Candy Cabs, starting tonight on BBC. Getting a lead role in the new BBC One comedy Candy Cabs was a dream of Elaine and why she was so pleased to be working with Jo Joyner.
So it's just as well that Jo Joyner was hundreds of miles away from Albert Square when she decided to get her kit off. The actress, who plays the long-suffering beautician in EastEnders, is starring in a new comedy that starts tonight on BBC One. Candy Girl:
She needs a fast car to zoom about our television screens, as the EastEnders star also takes the lead role in a new comedy about cabs. Jo was still on maternity leave with her twins when she got the script but was bowled over by the witty one-liners and charming characters. She plays Jackie, with Lisa Millett as her business partner Elaine. Among their employees, who drive bright pink cabs equipped with hair products, are Claire Sweeney and Melanie Hill.
