    Came and watched the last filming of the series on Monday 22nd Feb was excellent. At the end of the show you gave me a fork, thanks for that.
    It was mad as I know your cousin Piggy Lee and uncle Bobby so the jokes aimed at them were great.
    thanks for such an entertaining night your a true champ. Shame it was the last one would have love to have seen more.
    If you get a chance to respond would be great, and hope to see you again in the future.
