If I remember Mobile phones contract or PAYG, a Gym memberships and even Sky TV was accepted, I think they asked me to drop my £6.99 a month for Film4 (before it was free), but otherwise I was on cheapest alternates of all of these which they accepted.

Your story is similar to mine except you have been honest from the beginning as to where your money went (I tried to hide as was ashamed to tell anyone how I lost it) so you have already taking a step in the right direction.
