"Though the series was a success for Channel 4, gaining two million viewers, little thought had been taken on the ethics of child performers, singing songs originally written for older artists and dressing and dancing in a provocative style often influenced by the original performance. Whilst embraced by children who loved the idea of ordinary children singing and dancing as they did along with their favourite songs, the show sat uneasily with some adults, capped by a performance from five-year-old Joanna Fisher who covered the Sheena Easton song "9 to 5" (known as "Morning Train" in the States) in nightclothes and included the lyrics "night time is the right time, we make love".

In response the programme started to draw criticism from commentators in the British media who suggested that portraying children in this manner, singing songs that often contained a subtext of adult content, often in unsuitable costumes and heavy make-up, was somewhat sinister."
