The show was a huge hit at the time because it tackled issues like sex, teenage pregnancy, and drug addiction.

And who can forget the cautionary tale that PJ’s accidental paintball blinded girlfriends Debbie Dobson and Amanda Bewick?

The horrifying scene at the end of series four shows the girls aiming and shooting PJ as punishment for flirting with both of them.

But it just happened at the exact moment that the bingo guy chose to ditch his goggles – and led to his best mate Duncan shouting the now-famous line: “He can’t Got it, buddy!”
