Episode Notes
This show features an appearance from a young Ant and Dec, not long after their change of name from PJ and Duncan.

A lady wrote to the show to ask David and Frank to propose to her husband live on television for her, Ant and Dec actually did this and the couple later appeared on the next show and confirmed that they were engaged.

David Baddiel's parents are in the audience of tonight's show.

Cultural References
Frank, David, Ant and Dec are all discussing David Beckham and what they think of the situation with Beckham. This is referring to Beckham being sent off in the game vs. Argentina the week before and was being blamed at the time for England's exit from the World Cup.

Dec: (to Frank and David) we've never had a number one.

This refers to Frank and David having two number ones with their songs Three Lions (Number 1 in 1996 for Euro 1996) and then Three Lions 98' (Number 1 in 1998 for the FIFA 1998 World Cup).

Since this show aired, Ant and Dec have actually scored a number one in the UK Charts. They reached the top spot with Lets Get Ready To Rhumble in March 2013.

Episode References
A short clip from European Fantasy Football League: Episode 3 is used twice in this show.
