Yes, though that, and NvS, came in the days when they were owned by the same company - the same is true of Carlton and Central who produced a couple of series shown in both regions, such as a TV adaptation of Just a Minute.


No I don't think so - Fit to Win was from 1993 according to anything I've seen relating to it online.

I hated that campaign.

It was like someone from Central went over to the US, saw one of the major networks similar 'adverts for itself' came back, burst through the door of the marketing department and ordered "do one of those for us - just not so bombastic and smug"

Here is a Christmas Special episode of The Moment of Truth with the revamped set which was used for second series. The reason the show wasn't successful was because it wasn't a suitable format for Cilla Black. Had it got a right host it might had been a success but importing Moment of Truth was born out of LWT looking for the new format for Cilla after Surprise Surprise ran its course and Blind Date going off the boil.

Slight novelty - an episode of You've Been Framed under the relatively short tenure of Jonathan "I don't have a catchphrase" Wilkes, also known as that bloke Robbie Williams knows. This was only a few months before Harry Hill took over and the studio was no more.

Oh god. Am I going mad or was there a brief period where he was still presenter, but instead of presenting from a studio it looked like it was coming from an office or someone's house. Perhaps it was just for a best of episode.

That Felix sponorship sting - I seem to recall that it was designed for the short-lived previous logo and was merely updated to include the new one inside the outline of the old one:

Wikipedia claims there was a short period towards the end of the Wilkes era where he presented it from an apartment.

And while we're on the topic, here's the very first one:



I know nobody really has a "favourite episode" of You've Been Framed but I've always wanted to track down one of the Christmas specials with Lisa Riley. IIRC it opens with her in a log cabin in Lapland and shouts "It's Christmas!" A festive nostalgic oddity from my younger years I'd love to see again.

I remember someone taping that episode and me watching it over and over again because I thought it was the funniest show ever made (I was 4...). Then we went to Florida, first night, an episode of America's Funniest Home Videos aired, with all of the golf clips from the first YBF! Smile (Understandable seeing as they had the linkup with the USA and Japan for the show)
