THUNDERBIRDS MO­MENT ‘Ap­proach­ing op­ti­mum crisp.’ Roy, to his roast pota­toes, Cor­rie

MAN OF GOD AWARD ‘Thou shalt not covet thy neigh­bour’s BMX? Al­ways a tricky one at Christ­mas.’ Billy, Cor­rie

And so, Jack and Ron­nie’s big day has ar­rived (pic­tured). Will Ron­nie raid her draw­ers (the wooden kind) and re­trieve those hideous beige undies she ac­quired when first try­ing to se­duce Jack (and every other man, come to that – costume depart­ment bud­gets have been cut)? Will Roxy (in­set) ruin the wed­ding? Will Jack re­alise there are more women in the world than Twee­dle­dumb and Twee­dle­diva?

Of all the mad ‘spe­cials’ the Vic has held over the years, one can only gasp at Babe’s sug­ges­tion that the pub has a Twelfth Night­themed oc­ca­sion. Can any­one even count to 12? Sure enough, when the event takes place, Shirley ques­tions whether it is hap­pen­ing on the right day. Should you care, it is: it’s the night be­fore the 12th day af­ter Christ­mas, night turn­ing into day, blah, blah (Google it, peo­ple!). De­spite the ar­gu­ments, Babe pushes ahead and tells the Carters they will be per­form­ing a scene from Twelfth Night... with a twist (let’s hope it’s the kind that goes into a stiff G&T; I think we’re go­ing to need it).
