I used to think stuff like Star Wars was really filmed in space, before realising it was just the background effect in the studio.

I thought that Love Island was filmed on a tiny island, and the show took up the entire island.

Many moons ago, when I was a kid I used to watch "Underdog". On that show there was a character named Polly Purebred. Being my silly 5-year-old self I didn't understand what "purebred" meant and could never understand why a dog was named after bread.

When I watched Stars in Their Eyes as a 90's kid, I always thought the person dressing up as a singer was instantly transformed the second they went through the doors and came out again, and didn't realize that they were just speeding up the time, while he or she had a makeover!

I used to watch Eastenders in the 90's, and when Grantand Tiffany had their baby girl, named Courtney, my mum said 'it's not really Tiffany's baby, it's someone else's really', I thought she meant that Courtney really had different parents and they must have adopted her, even though she actually meant it was just a baby used for acting!

When I was a child, I didn't understand the concept of re-runs. So when I saw the same episode being played on TV, I thought to myself "they must get really tired of doing the same episode" and "how do they ever get to watch the show themselves?"
