Stop Actors abusing the Smoking Ban

Last night on East Enders (Thurdays 24/01/2008 screened at 20:00), a distraught Dot Cotton sat on her sofa smoking a cigarette while confiding in a friend. As this scene was filmed, a person was sat in their place of work smoking a cigarette next to a non-smoking colleague.
How is this legal? Surely there are no loop holes in the smoking ban. And surely the production company can not argue that "it is for the realism of the show", because none of the characters ever swear.
I feel that this blatant disregard for the laws of our country needs to be addressed immediately.
Consistency in Law is a must. Every single person has to be subject to the same laws and there cannot be any discrimination.
Please sign this petition to show your support to stop actors smoking.
WE ARE NOT TARGETTING DOT COTTON DIRECTLY - SHE IS JUST AN EXAMPLE!
