LAST NIGHT, RTÉ’S brand new drama Clean Break kicked off.

The Wexford-set drama tells the story of a car dealer, who, after discovering he is in dire financial straits, plots a tiger kidnapping.

But is it any use? Can it fill the Love/Hate-shaped hole in our Sunday night schedule?

First of all, some people were rather pleased to meet Adam Fergus.

And Wexford people were only delighted to see the county on the small screen.

Even if some of the accents were a little bit dodgy.


Some people were fully expecting Amber to show up after this guy appeared on the screen.

And everyone was left totally befuddled by the stamps.

As for whether it’s the new Love/Hate? Some have yet to be convinced.
