5 February 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

That was the funniest one yet, the gang have had a new character in thomas who seemed to be really funny then, he is ripped away from us, By getting himself Deported, lol. The funniest bit is when the gauntlet is thrown down by Thomas to have "The Fight" which turns out to be an eating contest between the Gangster Johhny White and the Legend that is Thomas, the weapon of choice a Hot chilli that makes the hard man Crap himself, What will the writers come up next. Legendary stuff they write at channel four, another mind shattering point is the dizzy aunty who thinks she is growing tea in her green house which turns out to be high grade Ganga, Cant wait for the next installment, Carry on the good work.
