"It’s all right, I won’t make you Wally Of The Week"

An especially potent piece of television, this, what with an appearance from the ubiquitous Pain family (“four internationally known celebrities,” cracks Noel) decked out in their Sunday best, a specially sleigh bell-enhanced version of the theme tune, that tiny studio set with Noel virtually sitting on top of his guests, and above all the ‘Aches’, one member of which here getting an inevitable “make the grade” plug from the continuity announcer.

It’s rather frightening to see that picture of Colin Baker gurning at you during the opening titles. And were Thames the only ITV company who gave its permission to let a large size version of its ident be used?

“Funny way of handing in your notice, Noel!”
