But I have to hold my hands up and say to you, all loudly, and very proudly, that my name is Michelle McManus and I am a totally bonkers superfan of River City.
So you can imagine my complete and utter excitement this week as the Scottish soap's 10th anniversary celebrations went into in full swing with the first of two anniversary specials screened on BBC 1 Scotland on Tuesday.
It was possibly the best episode I have ever seen and that is saying something as there have been some corkers over the years.
Everything from Raymond and Roisin's Vegas-style wedding, to Scarlet giving birth to baby Madonna in the back of a taxi on Christmas Day to Liz, Gina and Eileen throwing Archie's body off a cliff after Liz clubbed him over the head with his father's ashes to save Gina's life.
Tuesday's episode was nothing short of an emotional rollercoaster, which started with the death of a totally beloved character Derek 'Deek' Henderson, beautifully played by the very talented Gordon McCorkell.
It ended with viewers being left gasping at their TV screens as the local pub the Tall Ship was blown to smithereens finally ensuring the end of one of the shows most unsavoury characters Sean Kennedy.
There have been plenty of Scottish soaps and dramas that have gone before and have been equally successful, High Road and Taggart being the obvious top two but I truly feel River City has taken audiences to a completely different level.
There are tenement buildings, young vibrant characters, amazing story lines that tackle death, love, domestic abuse, mental health issues and same-sex relationships all done with the finest attention to detail and delivered with the greatest of respect for each, sometimes difficult, subject matter.
There are also the little things about the show that make me smile for example everyone in Shieldinch seems to arrive and exit via the underground carrying only one bag or leave in a taxi with not even a removal van in sight.
Everyone drinks in the same pub no matter what the occasion or crisis and over the years celebs have been queuing up to make guest appearances on the show from Jackie Bird to DJ Scott Mills with even the Queen of the breakfast sofa Lorraine Kelly turning up at Gina and Archie's wedding before filling her handbag with half the buffet and leaving.
A woman after my own heart there!
River City is something of which the people of Scotland should be extremely proud as it deals with real-life, everyday issues with just the right amount of TV fairy dust sprinkled over it and all in our own wonderful accent.
As I said, I am a superfan of the show, so much so that I was asked along with the likes of Lorraine Kelly and Nicola Sturgeon to take part in the Happy Birthday River City special produced and directed by the lovely Tony Kearney who played Scott Wallace on the show along with Jim Webster, both from Solus Productions, due to be shown this Sunday.
I truly hope it is a Happy Birthday for the show and I hope there are many more years of it to come.
Scotland has so much talent in front and behind the camera and its great there is such a fabulous vehicle to show it all off.
n Happy Birthday River City, BBC ONE Scotland, Sunday, 6.25pm.
