British actress/comedienne Victoria Wood has slammed "enhanced reality" Tv shows for taking work away from accomplished actors.

The Dinnerladies star is furious many British reality shows blur the boundary between real and scripted scenes, and she insists the programmes are simply "drama under a cheaper name".

Speaking at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards in London on Tuesday night (12Mar13), she said, "Some of them are good, some of them are really drama under a cheaper name and I don't like them. The ones that are genuine, fly-on-the-wall and beautifully made, I like.

"I am a fan of good reality (Tv). What I am not a fan of is what they call 'enhanced reality', where they put a bunch of real people into situations and get them to act something out. To me that is taking the bread out of the actors' mouths."
