Shooting Stars! And introducing Team A, please welcome Jonathan Ross! Big-boned Jonathan Ross weighs 17 stone, but that's not fat, oh no, he's just big-boned with a healthy supplement of good old British muscle.
And those chins? Well, they're just shadows caused by the studio lighting.
And joining Jonathan on Team A, please welcome John Peel! Bumbling John Peel, ambles around the sleepy village where he lives.

Surrounded by Turkish delight, hookah pipes, and fig rolls.
Who could resist? I know, I couldn't! And joining John on Team B, please welcome Chris Evans! Blend-in jawed hunk Chris is known variously as Big nose, Concorde-schnozzle, barge beacon, the Elephant.

And If any of our guests release, um I don't know how to say it, um "An un-welcomed gift".
- More like "a pastor's sons errand" - Yes, "a silent message".
"A cry of the parsnip".
So, basically, what you're saying is That the light bulbs will light up if someone lets of, right? - Yes.
- Yes.
We didn't actually wanted to say that.
So, the Thought Junkies where actually right now, is it? Fart jokes.
Is that the best you can do this evening? "Is that the best you can do?" Fart jokes is the theme of the show, are they, this evening? Well, I thought it might be a bit fun If I know, it will only get worse.
Now, the rules are simple.
They're open rounds, team rounds, and individual rounds.
And on those open rounds, we really wanna see those fingers! We REALLY wanna see those fingers! Come on, John! Let's see that f Oh! Nice finger work by John, there! - Obviously, a very keen fingerer, there.

- Sorry? What was that? - Pardon? That would be very silly, I think it "That would be very silly, indeed" Would it be Would it be sillier than speaking like that, though? Probably not! "Pubbably not", I'm sorry, Ulrika, did you just say: True or false? I said: You see, you can't False! You said 'false'? - False? It's true, I'm afraid! - It's true! And Mark, I've been researching YOUR name, and um I've discovered that 'la', equals, of course 'the'.
And 'marr', equals '50's'.
The 50's.
How very fitting! Well named, mister Lamarr.
That's the end of the 'True or false' round, so let's go right over to that man, and say: George Dawes, what are the scores? Look into my eyes.
And look at my nose.
Listen to what is coming out of my mouth, when I say That both teams They got 2 of points! Well! Even Stephen.
That takes us now onto the clip round! That's right, Vic.
The clips round.
We're gonna ask each team to answer a question, based on a clip.
So, Team A: Have a look at this clip.
Bet you'd be glad to get this off, won't you? Aye.
- How long is it, now? - Six weeks.

Tomorrow, I should think.
Really? Looks a bit stiff.
- Team A.
- Is THAT the best you can do? Yes.
Team A.
What is he so keen to start doing again? After six weeks have obviously elapsed.
Jonathan, you must have something to say about that? Oh, shame on both of you! What? - It's so sad, isn't it? - It's very sub-navel this, really? Very sub-navel.
The answer might be something that he uses his hands/waist area for, - and NOT masturbation.
- Well done.
Well done.
- I'm just narrowing down the field.
- Come on, you fowl-mouthed git! I think I think Painting? - Is he Tom Keating, the famous - No, I'm sorry, Jonathan It's NOT Tom Keating.

Looks a bit stiff.
Well, I should take things a bit easy at first.
Um Start of with halves.
And Gradually work your way up to pints.
- There we are! - Sorry.
Unlucky! Team B? Could you take a look at THIS clip? Here's a new romantic look, designed by Sarah Bernard from St.
Austell in Cornwall.
And what I liked about this, was the flowing lines of the material on the shirt and the trousers.
Well, there you saw Peter Duncan from 'Blue Peter'.
What happened next? Did his trousers fall down? What's your answer, John? Maybe, his trousers fell down, or something like that? - Well, I think - And let's have a look! Let's have a look, I think we might And what I liked about this, was the flowing lines of the material on the shirt and the trousers.
Even down to the There we are.
I don't know whether that's entirely fair, because, John, you where knocking around 'Blue Peter' the whole time 'Cause your 'Newsround' came on straight afterwards, - so you where obviously there.
- That's right.
Never saw it, though.
Fact is, you have been around since the 60's, 70's, 80's - 80 years.
- 90's.
- A long, long time.
- Not quite, Chris! And the 90's I started in the black and white days in television.
- Mark would remember THAT, of course! - Yes, yes But, John? What was your Fashion-wise, what was your favourite era, 60's, 70's, 80's? I don't know.

- They're VERY comfortable.
- I'm sure they are.
And they probably match your eyes.
Well, that's We are not going to Jonathan's Well, that's the end of the clips round, so, let's go over to George Dawes and say: George Dawes, what are the scores? Enough.
And I will do a good favour, to you, my good 'fwend', by telling you, a good score.

And Ulrika Jonsson's team are doing mighty fine, they've got 3.
Well, you're all doing very well! Rather good, there, pick it up a little bit over there.

If you're enjoying a pancake, and someone should ask for some of it, don't squirt tart lemon directly into their eyes.
because THAT's what could happen.
Now, obviously, this wasn't tart lemon, this was just water.
Only joking! It's just water.
But, please DO be careful if you ARE going to squirt tart lemon in anybody's eye.
Now, DON'T squirt tart lemon into anybody's eye.
Especially near a pancake.
