In the first programme of the series, mischievous Keith Chegwin tricks Henry Cooper into falling for a scam on the golf course, the cast of Birds of a Feather challenge the EastEnders in the Lyric Game, and Ronnie Corbett is on hand to add his own tiny touch of class to the proceedings as the butler. There's also contract gunging in the gunk tank, a chance for viewers to win a Â£1,000 cash prize, and a candid exchange of home truths between some precocious children and their battered parents that takes place, appropriately enough, in the genial host's dungeons.
Fun for all the family as pairs compete to see who will take part in the conveyor belt challenge with the chance to win a host of prizes.
With Rosemarie Ford.
