A great lalf
22 April 2006 | by (Abergele, Wales, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of the most outrageous funny shows I have ever seen. The rest of the UK and the US don't know what they are missing. One of the funniest characters is Fagans mum who use to be a striper called Fiffe Lamour. It so funny hearing Fagans mum who is about 77 telling stories about here stripping. It is the only program that I have ever seen that had royalty in it. Off course it was an actor who played the part of Prince Charles, who in the episode got high on cannabis. It's absolutely mental, but well worth watching. Me and my family, my mum Elaine, my dad Iwan and my sister Kirsty love it. And after we had shown it to my best friend Kieren he loved it to
