Hm, they've seemed to have played that Tesco advert every ad break in the show. Pure coincidence or planned?

Edit: Glad I'm not the only one who's thought the same! Razz
My tweet was read out on BBC Four's Eurovision coverage and Rylan Clark-Neal replied to it. That's all.

Given they seem to have all their own-brand products in the supermarket, it's probably part of the deal. Though they're clearly getting their money's worth from the GoPro's pointed at the products being searched all being own brand with labels fully in view!

Also worth noting that the Tesco-branded break bumpers seem to be part of the programme and not separate like other programmes.

i haven’t listened to it back to confirm but I did think I could here a bit of the 2007 theme at one point.

I thought they didn’t a pretty good job of updating the show and extending it out to an hour. It didn’t seem to drag at all, well apart from Rylan seeming to take forever explaining the rules of the final round.

Any new features which adds to its new running time or just more adverts clogging up the space?


Additional games mostly and extra banter. Mini-sweep, sweep with a basket, main sweep with the trolley, a new game at the checkout, and guess the celebrity shopping.

A pretty good effort I thought. The thing I question the most is a non-voice over person doing the commentary during the sweeps.

Although it was obviously padded out to fit an hour, I also wonder how they managed to fit in, the mini sweep, all the games, the main sweep and the super sweep in about 24 minutes back in the 90s.

I’m not sure about it being stripped nightly on ITV2, or even on ITV2 at all. I’m guessing it was in the pipe line before the Kyle business blew up, but I think they could try it at 9:25. In fact I think they could probably get away with showing this version at 9:25.
