I did laugh a lot after seeing the URL and then the reveal, but that seems a shame as it was a quality piece of work. Interesting that it looks to be the same shot of Rodders that everyone wants to get tattooed on their tit.

Also it demonstrates how this show transcends all other sitcoms, I mean I don't hear of someone getting a tattoo of Captain Mainwaring or painting a massive portrait of Victor Meldrew on a car park.

The name of the company that owns the site is really Steptoes and Son?

They missed a trick there. It should have been a six foot high mural of Willfrid Brambell’s learing head.

"This week, Lord Sugar has asked the teams to stage a comedy dining experience ..."
LOL.

Hmm. At least it's helped me to understand the words to the end credits tune. I've always thought it was: 'Black or white, rich or poor. Real cut prices and a straw.' And yes, I know that doesn't make sense.
I thought it was , "We'll cut nonces at the pool".

Why would Del Boy choose to have a major birthday party at a small hotel in Torquay? It just doesn't add up..

What a dashing , handsome figure Manuel cuts in that picture. So happy, too. Not a care in the world, being manhandled by Basil, or not.

Did Basil divorce Sybil and marry Lynne from Alan Partridge ?

Is Del Boy also playing Basil? Perhaps it’s all one of his “schemes”, eh readers?

BALD BASIL: Don't mention the dining invite. I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it.

Wondered why prices were in euros for the City North Hotel and realised the hotel was near Dublin.

The show will be "faultless".

I see there is a Mrs Browns Boys style Dining Experience. I reckon there will be a Gavin and Stacey one soon.

Why has incredibly/ridiculously handsome Manuel stolen Brian Ferry's hair?

I'd actually pay for that. If it had the proper cast in.

It would be great if we could organize a giant CaB meet up at one of these things, imagine it'd be a real hoot.

Sybil's a fox. What's she doing with baldy Basil?

i probably shouldnt give them too much credit, but isn't the idea of a Fools/FT crossover just utterly, utterly ludicrous and unworkable?

I mean I know they'll just be shouting catchphrases at each other but still

The old ladies from FT appeared in an episode of Only Fools, of course. Maybe they'll weave that into the dining narrative somehow.

Basil: There's too much butter on those trays

Manuel: No. Is Uno, dos, tres

Del-boy: Tres bien ensembles, Basil. Bonnet de douche.
