Depsite the heavy use of Cambridge locations, itv stressed to The Sun that the story itself is set at a FICTIONAl university. ITV told The Sun: "Cheat is set at a fictional university, although some of the filming did take place in Cambridge, including Gonville and Caius College and some council locations."

Director Louise Hooper also said: “The actual college is just a made up place, we used lots of different places.

“We used schools and camps outside of Cambridge, so it’s not set there.”
