It's about a dysfunctional Mancunian family and the antics they get up to.
Jody Latham, who plays Lip, and James McAvoy, who plays the dodgy boyfriend
Steve, popped into Radio 1 to tell us about the show.
It's been such a success they're filming series two in a couple of months'
Jody and James told us what kind of reaction they've been getting so far:
"My mates are like 'Oh my God, everyone's talking about it at work. No-one
believes I know you, no-one believes you're my best mate!'"
"That just made me feel very proud to be part of it. And it's quite daunting
to see your face on billboards and stuff!"
"It is really weird. It's lovely to have so many positive responses. The
weirdest thing is just having sex on television and your parents and your mates
sending text messages saying 'That was too much, mate!'"
You can catch 'Shameless' at 10pm on Tuesdays on Channel 4.
