Daisy previously admitted that she was earning £100 a month as a cleaner and could not afford to buy McDonald’s prior to her breakthrough role in this country.
Speaking on Lorraine she said: ‘It was such a dark time. I just got out of drama school, didn’t get anything, I had to move back with my parents and do the cleaning work at night.
‘I think I was paid about £100 a month and when we were going to clean up, we came across these characters and said, “We have to write something”. Because humor was the only thing that was taking us out of such hopeless times.’
She continued: ‘A lot of it is based on our experiences. At the end of the first series, they’re talking about how they couldn’t afford McDonald’s and had to watch their friends eat one, and that was our life.
‘We had nothing and to even try to reach the auditions, £9 was such a huge part of our weekly budget to get up on the National Express.’
