Shetlands
After the nerve-stretching excitement of last week's Powerplay awards,
Jenny Powell and Tony Baker had the problem of saving tonight's No Limits from anticlimax. And so the dauntless duo embarked on their most ambitious journey - off the edge of the map and halfway to Iceland to throw a combined Christmas and end-of-series party on the Shetland Islands - the lengths some people go to just to shake off gatecrashers! Hospitality is the chief island industry - so it should be a case of knees up and hair down, to the accompaniment of the best pop videos and chart sounds from both sides of the Atlantic. The entire population's invited so at least there'll be no one left outside to complain about the noise. Thank goodness the next series isn't till next summer, it'll take six months to recover from the hangover.
