A whole scene with Terry Scott was deleted from the final print, although he was paid £500 for the day's shoot. The footage has long been destroyed and only stills remain. Scott played a union boss called Mr Allcock. See more »

[there is anger at the loss of the tea round]
It's another a little prod at the very vitals of your personal freedom.
I never noticed anyone prodding at my vitals!
Good for you, Chloe.

I love all the carry on films except maybe the last few (England was dire) but this along with 'Screaming' is my favourite. I could and have watched it dozens of times and it still makes me laugh. All the cast are clearly having a laugh and it's nice to see Kenneth Cope not playing Marty Hopkirk (Randall And Hopkirk Deceased - my all time favourite TV show). Sid James is ,well, Sid James but what's wrong with that?, Bernard Bresslaw hilarious and Jacki Piper... well.. forget Barbara Windsor, she was never a looker, Jacki Piper and Angela Douglas (not in this one) were always better looking. The whole concept of making a film in a toilet factory is inspired, has there been another??? The situations at the factory, at Brighton and especially at Sids house with the budgie (ta daddy!, ta daddy!, TA!!!)are all laugh out loud funny. No matter what mood you're in, bung this on and have a bloody good laugh. Brilliant film.
