It’s been twenty years since Jim Carrey had his annus mirabilis in 1994 when, seemingly in a matter of hours, he became the biggest comedy star in the world. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective was followed by The Mask, before he rounded up the year very nicely with Dumb & Dumber, a film that could trouble Airplane! for a place at the top of the comedy tree.
Carrey became the biggest name in comedy for over ten years, but the two fellows responsible for Dumb & Dumber didn’t fare too badly either. The Farrelly Brothers’ follow-up, Kingpin (1996), was even funnier, though the box office returns were diminished. Their audience returned in droves in 1998 for their biggest hit, There’s Something About Mary, which made superstars out of Cameron Diaz and Ben Stiller, and made men across the world take extra care when pulling up the zip on their trousers.

There's just one band left to meet properly on The Big Reunion - yes, it's time for 3T to step up to the plate with talk of their aunt's nipples, being a Jackson and intense games of Pictionary. As if that wasn't enough, this episode also saw Eternal and A1 meeting up again, so it was packed full of juice. Read on to find out what we learned from the instalment...
1. 3T really were properly successful back in the day.
Yes, yes, they had the Jackson connection, but seriously - in 1996 they were ranked second only to the Spice Girls as the biggest-selling group in Europe. That's intense. Of course, it basically ran in their veins, and there was super cute home video footage of them as children having a go at the old music thing.
2. Michael Jackson refused to let 3T break into showbusiness as children.
