‘The show had a confidence and an attitude that was unique. It wasn’t edgy for the sake of it. It was intelligent and informed and bloody funny.’
Richard Wilcox, associate producer

‘To be surrounded by that level of talented people, all working together, all believing in what they are doing and kicking the arse out of it partying and having a laugh? You are lucky to get a moment like that in your life. And I had it for a decade.’
Dominik Diamond

‘It was possibly the highlight of my life.’
Vic Reeves, celebrity contestant
