would they really pay all that money per episode and put it on ITV2?

No probably not. We dont know what the asking price is. But it does have a good repeat value imo.
ITV2 will tweet the hell out of it and probably have promos all over the place.
ITV2 is the last and final place for it.

Given how ITV2 regularly rates - they could take a chance on putting it on that channel. Also neuters the fact that some daytime programming harks back to ITV repeat fare.

Not much point in replacing cheap repeats that rate well with costlier imports which won't rate much better.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

There used to be subtle Easter eggs for the UK audience when it was on the BBC, like a Pudsey Bear toy in the background in an episode that would air around CiN time here.


They did that last year for the UK 30th anniversary. You had to count the Union Flags (phone covers, boxer shorts etc). The Aussies must have been perplexed!!

There's the famous one about a decade ago with Lou and Andy from Little Britain doing a comedic skit in the background of an otherwise normal scene, which must have seriously confused anyone who weren't familiar with Lucas and Walliams. Annoyingly the Youtube clip seems to have been blocked in the UK, but Dailymotion have a copy.

Michael Palin randomly showing up on Home & Away in the 90s (while he was filming a travel documentary in Australia) is one we can thankfully still enjoy.

Most people would have been familiar though, as Little Britain was big in Australia and the appearance had quite a bit of promo beforehand.
