*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Emma's acting credentials are to the fore in the opening sketch, which concerns infidelity, betrayal and promiscuity amongst UK television celebrities. She plays the role of both the wronged wife, and the dizzy blonde starlet, vying for the same man and vying for a coveted BAFTA award for "The best female comedy performance of 1984."

Clever video editing may at first trick you into thinking the elegant brunette in the formal gown and the scatterbrained blonde starlet are different actors, but be assured Emma plays both.

The main curiosity value of this clip is the truly bizarre 1980s style of Emma's song-and-dance routine. It follows the BAFTA-awards comedy sketch, and is unfortunately cut short abruptly 249 seconds from the start of the clip. Oh, those crazy '80s....
