Daisy May Cooper (Kerry) and Charlie Cooper (Kurtan) are brother and sister in real life. Their dad (Paul) plays Kerry's useless dad in the show, and their uncle (actor Trevor Cooper) is the grumpy Len Clifton. Michael Sleggs ('Slugs' Slugett) is a long-term friend of the creators.

Daisy May Cooper voices Kerry's un-seen shouting mum in the show (she records the lines at a later date and they're added to the show in the editing process), although the role is credited to 'Ivy Woodcock'.

Additional material in the series is credited to 'the cast', suggesting that the actors have some freedom to improvise around the scripts.
