Jeff Pope tells the RTS which reality TV show is his guilty pleasure
From writing hit show Philomena to co-writing and executive producing Cilla and Mrs Biggs, Jeff Pope has had a successful career in the media.
He started out in television by working as a researcher at ITV's London Weekend Television in 1983. Years later he became Head of Factual Drama at ITV Studios.
In 2007 he won a BAFTA in screenplay for See No Evil: The Moors Murders.
At this week's RTS Student Masterclasses he told eager television students that dramas tend to be re-written about fifteen times.
Here he explains why he has been watching SAS: Who Dares Wins and why he can't get enough of TOWIE.
