The creator of hit American drama Desperate Housewives has warned audiences they will be sickened and horrified by a storyline featuring flame-haired BREE VAN DE KAMP and her tearaway son.

MARC CHERRY is bracing himself for a backlash during the second series when rebel ANDREW exacts a terrible revenge on his mother - played by actress MARCIA CROSS - for sending him to a boot camp for delinquents.

Cherry says, "It's about as bad as anything on TV. Andrew resents her tremendously. He's going to get back at her.

"We've got something just hideous planned. I'm going to get letters."
