CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Hello, I'm Frank Skinner and welcome to Room 101,
the show where three guests battle to banish their bete noires
to the notorious vault.
They'll have to argue their case well because, in each round,
only one item can be chosen. The final decision is mine.
Let's meet this week's guests.
Joining me tonight are Murder On The Dance Floor, Sophie Ellis-Bextor,
Murder In The Cathedral, Rob Beckett,
and murder, but only if he felt there was no alternative, Ross Kemp.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
OK, so, let's get ready to grumble,
and we'll begin with Rob.
Um, I've gone for teeth.
-Yeah. It's a little bit awkward...
-..I'll be honest with you.
Just cos I've had a lot of abuse about my teeth over the years,
and I might have had a sort of easier life if I didn't have teeth.
Um... But if everyone didn't have teeth,
I think it'd just be easier all round, just cos...
they're a pain, aren't they?
You've got to clean them...twice a day, you've got to go to
the dentist, which everyone hates, when they hurt,
they really hurt,
and also I sort of think you'd lose weight,
because all you'd have is soup!
And I've never seen an overweight person knocking back soup all day.
-Easier with the shop, innit?
"What we got?" "Soup again." "Got nothing to chew it with."
And I just think it would just be easier if everyone had no teeth.
I'm thinking of some of the implications as we speak.
-I think, yeah, I mean...
..I feel that your teeth are almost your identity.
Oh, yeah, I would be unemployed if I had no teeth.
It's a terrible system, isn't it, as well?
You have to... You're going through
-the agonies as a tiny baby of teething.
-And you think...
Aw, the baby must think,
because it doesn't know the wider implications,
"Thank God I've got that out the way."
I've got...like, a little baby and the teeth,
the poor thing - they're like tomb stones coming out of her head.
-These massive things coming down and she's..."I'm sorry."
I wonder why they're so big?
And, also, you could have fizzy drinks.
You've not got to worry about sugar, sweets. Chocolate,
you haven't got to worry. You can have Ribena every day!
Are you aware of the national obesity crisis?
Yes, Frank, but we're already on soup, aren't we?
-Oh, so soup and sweets.
-Soup and sweets.
There's a Twitter feed called Without Teeth.
-And it's pictures of celebrities without...
what they would look like.
There's one of Barack Obama,
who, um...does look very different.
LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE
I think he looks great!
I think I used to drink with him...
LAUGHTER DROWNS SPEECH
..in the late '70s. I'm sure that I remember that bloke!
So, we've got you with no teeth,
-Rob, if you'd want to see what that would look like.
Here we go.
-Everyone looks more fun!
-I was gonna say, you do look really sweet.
-Like you're from Muppets or something.
You'd absolutely smash through a Mr Whippy, wouldn't you?
And here's Sophie.
LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE
-Wow, that's like an extra 40 years along with losing my teeth.
-Yeah, and it's made your whole mouth look, well, bigger.
Sometimes, when I'm somewhere, and there's bottles of beer
and no-one can find a bottle opener,
-I can open the bottles with my teeth.
-How about that?
-I'd need teeth.
-You wouldn't be able to do that just with gummy gum-gums,
-I would not. So, what would happen then?
Get a bottle opener.
-Well, you can't find it.
Yeah. That's good, though, because, you see,
if Ross said he could open bottles with his teeth, I'd think,
"Well, of course you can."
-But I can't, there's the whole point of that.
-You can't? Really?!
No, he just bites the top off.
These are my third set of front ones.
-Yeah. One, two, three.
-What happened to them?
First one, kicked out playing rugby,
and then a really bad night in Caracas, like you do.
Is that a nightclub?
No! It's the capital of Venezuela.
Oh, I thought it was a nightclub in Croydon, Cer-ackers.
-It might be...
Two for one on Sambuca on a Wednesday. Cer-ackers!
I don't rememb... I don't remember much about it.
-Did you have shoes and a shirt to get in?
-But I did wake up
the next morning with, like, everyone looking at me, going...
I'm going, "What? What?"
-I'd taken off all the fascias cos I'd hit the marble bar...
..and I'm going, "I will never drink again."
-Have you stuck with that?
-A little bit.
I went to my dentist and he said,
"Look, I need to broach the subject with you.
"I-I-I think you need to whiten your teeth."
And I said, "No, I've always been against..."
You know celebrities with the super white...
They look like they could...
If they smiled, they could read in bed.
And I said, "I don't want to be..."
And he said, "Well, no, I'm not talking about you...
"not so much making them white as making them less green."
This is what he honestly said to me, my dentist.
And I said, "I don't want the super white," this is what he said to me,
"I don't think that you'll live long enough to get them that white."
No, don't take this badly, Rob.
I've got a clip of a dog,
and it... I think it does look a bit like you.
-It better be a fit dog, Frank.
-In the nicest possible way.
It's a beautiful dog. Here it is.
Hey, Charlie. What you got?
Is it a new toy?
-Is that your new...?
LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE
Oh, good, he took it well!
OK, what's upsetting Sophie?
So many things.
This is misplaced clapping.
-It's OK. That was placed in the right place.
-They're good, this crowd.
-It might need... Yeah.
No? All right!
You're all brilliant at this one!
-So, I'm thinking any time clapping doesn't really need to happen.
Oh, all right!
I'm so confused, I'm like, "They like it, they don't like it."
Things like when the plane lands, and people clap when a plane lands.
People clapping at the end of a film in the cinema
when no-one from the film is in the room to hear it.
People clapping when a waiter drops plates.
So, yeah, extraneous clapping.
The first plane I ever went on,
they clapped when we landed and I thought it was just...
It was with the Wright Brothers.
But it's the weirdest thing.
Does that mean if you were on a plane and it was going down,
-they'd start booing?
It's only doing what it's supposed to do. You don't need the clap.
I think that's fair enough.
I was at a gig once,
Blackfoot Sue at Birmingham Town Hall,
and they came on and I ran up to the stage like that,
thinking that 200 people would follow me,
and I started all this
and I realised no-one had come with me at all,
I was looking at the security guard thinking, "Please make me sit down,"
which they didn't, and I had to dance for a bit,
but the band was sort of going...
The band weren't dancing that much,
and in the end I had to dance sort of towards my chair
and then dance with my knees bent,
and then gradually land. Ah, man.
That's like in X Factor, innit,
when someone, like, they go to give a standing ovation
after a performance,
and all the other judges haven't done it,
-and they just slowly sneak back into their seat.
-Yeah. Oh, I know.
I find over laughing in theatres...
-Oh, yeah, that's very annoying.
-..worse than... So, like,
you do a comedy gig, people laugh at the end of a joke, but when you go to, like, a straight play
and one person does, like, one little thing of, like, a pun or something like, "Duh-DUH-duh!"
Everyone goes, "A-HA-HA, oh, my God, that's so funny!"
-Well, they do it in...
-Shut up, you're rubbish!
In Shakespeare, people do it, they're like,
-"Ah, I show I understand."
-That's right! It's like,
"I'm cleverer than you are... because I got the joke first."
In Warhorse, oh, my God, there's a about a 20-minute bit all in French.
So you get, like, loads of geezers laughing.
Like, "Oh-ho, I know French." Oh, shut up, mate.
Showing off you know French,
pretending to laugh at a rubbish joke about a wooden horse.
I wouldn't mind a few of those people in tonight.
I have this thing if, when I go to West Brom games,
occasionally they get booed off at half-time.
-I can't explain it.
But whenever they get booed off at half-time,
when they come out for the second-half,
they always get cheers and applause.
And I think, "What have they done to win the crowd back over?"
It's like absence makes the heart grow fonder.
"Aw, actually, I actually missed them.
"I know we booed them off, but I'm missing them now."
If you had a row with your wife and then - like, a big blazing row
and then storm out, if you come back after 15 minutes,
she's never gonna go, "Oh, nice to see you back."
Can I say, that's definitely true.
I went to the circus with my partner and after a bit she said,
"Can you clap more with your fingers?"
"It's... You're clapping so loud, it's hurting my ears."
At the circus?!
And I actually was like this.
Anyway, have you ever wondered
what people from other planets might clap like?
-Ooh, no, I have not.
Oh, you know, I'll show you.
-That's very weird.
-Has anyone ever clapped like that before?
Yeah, that kinda went round.
And, also, the wind from his clapping
seems to be blowing his mouth. Did you see that?
What's happening with his...his clapping mouth?
I think Boris Johnson's played a trick on him
and put his arms through his jumper and popped up like that.
OK, so, what's upsetting Ross?
Snobby shop assistants.
Now, why's that?
I tell you...one of the reasons is because,
by the time I could go into certain shops...
-ie afford to go into certain so-called posh shops...
..I was either too ugly or they thought I was going to rob the shop!
So, when I was young and I really desperately could have fitted into
those clothes, when I wasn't the size that I am now,
I couldn't go in them anyway,
and now I can afford to go in one - or I used to before I had kids...
..and I would be looked as like,
"Shouldn't you have just gone into Millets?
-"It's down there on the right."
But definitely the look of,
"You shouldn't be in here, you know that."
-"You're too ugly." And...
-That would upset me a little bit.
-It would upset me a little bit.
-I wouldn't say you were TOO ugly.
-I would say...
-Definitely too ugly for them, though!
I can slightly buy into the fact
that you might be there to rob the shop!
-Didn't you try to buy a single stocking?
And, I think, you know,
if you do go in to a shop, they should be nice to you -
that's the whole point of them being there.
They're there to kind of serve you and help you.
-Yeah, it's horrible.
..you're sort of looking at them and looking at the mannequins
and think, "Who shall I ask?"
I do, I think the mannequins are probably
more human than the shop assistants.
Sometimes maybe a little bit too human.
They opened a Hollister
on Regent Street,
which is a very smart, up-market shop.
This is the staff. Look at these people.
Absolutely beautiful, all of them.
And, truly, I went into the Hollister in San Francisco,
I was on a stop-over and I went into the Hollister, not to buy for me,
but was told I was too old to be served.
-Oh, my God!
-Wow! That's outrageous!
I was being blanked, I've got them... I've got the top here,
and I've got my dollars in my hand and I'm going,
"Can I just pay for this?" And he went,
-"No, man, you're too old."
-You get more respect from Mexican drug lords.
Me and El Chapo. He'd have no problem going in there
-because he'd clear the shop first.
OK, so we come to the end of that round.
I don't think we can do away with teeth, you know.
I-I... I like... I actually like going to the dentist.
-I've never had a problem with that.
-Yeah, you get to wear, um, shades and...stuff.
-I get shades so I don't get bits of me in my eyes.
I get four blokes and a JCB, so it's a bit...
LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE
..bit different for me.
And misplaced clapping. I know what you mean, you know,
but I'm not a big fan of clapping at the best of times.
I prefer laughter.
-And if it comes to clapping, I'll take it anywhere I can get it.
VERY LIGHT APPLAUSE But the people in those shops...
LAUGHTER ..the people - thank you - the people in those shops, Ross,
they are terrible people,
-and us ugly people have to stick together.
-Yeah, put them in.
-So, I am going to put snobby shop assistants
-into Room 101.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
OK, then, so.
Oh, my God. THEY LAUGH
Sorry about me bell.
So...and so to Sophie's choice.
Oh, that's a good name for a film.
-Enforced seating plans.
So, I'm talking specifically about when I go to an event and...
you know, a party, whatever it is,
and they've separated me from whoever I've gone with at the table.
If I've gone to something with my sister, my friend, my husband,
I want to sit next to them when I'm eating.
I don't want them to be on the other side of the table or miles away.
I don't like it when they move us apart, and if I get to the table
quick enough, I will move us back together.
-I have no shame in rearranging seating plans.
-Are you one of those people that do that?
Controversial, I hear. Yeah, sure, I want to sit next to my husband.
What's wrong with that? That's why I married him, so I want to go and sit
next to him, I want to chat about the evening with him next to me.
-How long have you been married?
I find me and my partner jump at the chance to sit...
-I don't believe you.
But it is. I think we regard it as a bit of a treat.
It's what Nelson Mandela, I think,
called the short walk to freedom!
He never sat with Winnie.
I don't mean that in a bad...
I don't mean it in a negative way.
I think, I take the approach, the old coat theory, is that if I sit
separately from my partner,
I'll appreciate her more when I get outside.
Because if you both had, like, a different experience,
you get to slag off twice as many people.
I find it very annoying, enforced seating plans.
Oh, the worst one is when they go,
-"So, everyone moves along a seat every five minutes."
-Have you had that?
-Or every course you move on...
-Or every ten minutes.
I find boy, girl, boy, girl quite annoying as well. Like...
It doesn't matter. Just sit down.
I think it's quite excit... It's the closest, probably,
I'll ever get to swinging!
Do you have those warnings?
You know when you need to be rescued?
-I mean, that can be,
you know, you get someone who's really...
-I mean, I started carrying a flare gun.
-Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I tell you what I have done - you'll like this, Ross.
There's a laugh I sometimes use, which is...
Which is the Morse code for SOS.
Once I was trapped in a... awful conversation, so boring,
I didn't know what to do and I was just, sort of like, he just wouldn't stop talking at me,
so, you know, like, they have all these big bouquets of flowers or a big centrepiece at a wedding,
and there was a candle, I pushed a candle, like, under, like, a menu and a bit of flour,
and I was like, "Oh, God, there's a fire!"
-Just to get out the conversation.
And it worked cos we had to sort the fire out that I'd started.
How are you with this kind of thing, Ross?
I meet a lot of strangers through the job.
-Some very weird ones occasionally.
-I just met Rowdy.
You'd like Rowdy.
-Rowdy's an Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.
Oh, my word.
I think I know him.
-Is he a very, very tall bloke, pointy head?
Rowdy was a very scary man.
-I suppose if you're the Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan,
you're going to have an edge.
He was at a wedding?!
He had a very long place...
I hate it when someone else wears all white at a wedding.
-He wears purple.
Really stealing your moment, the clown.
Can I tell you what, the one... his mate, I said,
"So, who's the one in green?"
He went, "He's the Green Dragon."
I said, "I used to drink in there when I was younger."
LAUGHTER Yes, anyway, I didn't think
we'd be talking about the Klan tonight, you never know.
Every night we talk about the Klan.
I wonder if the Klan have these problems.
They stand around saying, "You know when we had that dinner
"and they made me sit by the Imperial Wizard?
"I don't know him that well."
They do seating plans normally if there's, like, either a couple
that are a nightmare, or if there's people that are coming on their own,
so they're not sitting on their own,
but, then, normally there's a reason if they're sitting on their own!
Because they're hard work.
Are we still talking about the Klan?
I bet the Klan, they're looking at the tablecloth and thinking,
"This would make a lovely robe.
"Do you want this after... Are you keeping this?"
OK. That's enough Klan jokes...
..for one night. What's upsetting Rob Beckett?
It's just so expensive, and whenever you benefit from it,
something bad's happened. It's all just very negative,
and I think a lot of the time as well, it's like,
you just sort of have it just so that if anything does go wrong,
you go, "I didn't have insurance",
go "Oh, my God, you should have got insurance!"
Where if no-one had insurance, then, like, I think people would drive more carefully,
-because then they'd have to pay.
-Oh, yeah. Yeah.
Or it might be like Mad Max, and, either way, he's a laugh.
I just find it... It's just annoying, like, going on holiday,
I mean, your travel insurance, I bet that's pricey, isn't it?
Just a bit.
-Are you going skiing?
I'm not going skiing, but I'm going with a drug cartel!
You can't go skiing with the Klan, you'd never find them.
LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE
-The Green Dragon's won again!
"I don't remember there being a mountain range in that direction.
"Oh, it's the lads. Come here!"
-It's the lads!
-I call them "the lads,"
I'm assuming you didn't call... LAUGHTER
Do you remember the advert... You know Churchill, the insurance dog?
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I think he's in! He's here!
Do you remember the advert when he went to Paris with Melanie Sykes?
That's... Are you sure you've not had an LSD trip?
I have video evidence.
Churchill, can I really count on you for 50% off home insurance
if I haven't claimed in five years?
And UK call centres?
Pull the other one. He told me he's off to Paris with Melanie Sykes!
Oh! Oh, oui, oui!
Ooh, Churchy! I didn't know you spoke the lingo.
That's all very well and light-hearted.
Is there not quite a strong suggestion
of an inter-species relationship?
And also, that he's cheating on her with the other dog.
Well, he's retained an interest in his own kind,
but he's very happy... I mean, she's being so flirtatious!
It's a woman and a bulldog!
I don't know if they've had to go to France because there's different laws there.
Also, did they do microchipping and pet passports back in the day
or has she smuggled him in?
Cos they only recently come in, passports for dogs, ain't they?
He's had to go six times in quarantine for that weekend away!
If you were, you know, in your deathbed, looking back,
and you're thinking, "I've had a good life,
"I've never really been ill. I've never been in a car crash,
"I've never been burgled,
-"I have squandered a fortune..."
"..on insurance that I've never, ever..."
I think it would make people less worried about material things.
Because if you've got no house insurance,
don't have anything nice.
They ain't got nothing to nick, then, have they?
One of my favourite methods for stopping being burgled is these.
Do you ever see these on people's houses?
I love those.
I've got one on my house. This is my one.
LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE
-Can I borrow that?
-You can have this, Ross, if you like.
-Thank you, mate, I'll have it afterwards!
-That would be great!
What would you insure, Rob, do you think?
-What would I insure?
-If you had to insure...
-Maybe my teeth.
-It probably would be the teeth.
Yeah, but I talk about South-East London a lot, so...Lewisham.
-Never going to happen.
-It'd be quite a big...
You should do one of your documentaries there.
I'm surprised an insurance company will touch you,
you're hanging round with the Klan and...
The Klan are all right. Well...
In terms of...
They're not going to... They're not an IED.
Just that sound clip!
Ross Kemp says...
What I mean... What I mean is,
they're not as dangerous or as lethal as going to Juarez or going to Afghanistan,
Iraq, Syria, etc.
-Or Caracas on New Year's Eve.
They're quite easy.
I'm amazed you can get insurance of any kind.
It's part of the job. You have to fill out, you know,
accident report forms before you go out, and sometimes
you're just saying, this is, you know, what I'm actually writing down to get insured for.
-"Will be spending time with Taliban", you know?
"Will be flying into Hot LZ in Chinook,"
but, you know, there's people who specialise in it,
and, obviously, for your family, but it's also a real...
for getting kidnapped and stuff like that,
you have to write in actually proof of life.
So, you know, you have to say...I'm not going to tell you what I write,
but you have to actually write down, should you be taken,
-what words will you say...
-..through the kidnap pass
to prove that it's you.
DOES EASTENDERS DUFF-DUFFS, LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE
SPEECH DROWNED BY APPLAUSE
So, when you do that, when you do that, you go,
"I don't mind... I don't mind insuring the car."
What about these celebrities who insure body parts?
-Do you know these people?
Oh, didn't...with Michael Flatley and his legs?
Michael Flatley, his legs were once insured for £40 million.
-Now, I can see it with Michael Flatley to some extent,
because his legs is his job,
but this is the one that really, uh...Taylor Swift,
her legs are insured
for £26.5 million.
-Is this true?!
-Who's... Who's doing it?
Who'd you ring?
I don't think her legs are any better than my legs.
Honestly, I think my legs are that good.
-Yep. Can we see them?
-Here's Taylor Swift.
I think, arguably, my legs are better than hers.
-They're not your legs.
-They are my legs!
-I swear to you. There's no...
-They're so shiny!
-I know, well, I've oiled them.
-You've oiled them?!
No, I've oiled them for a bit, but they're still my legs.
-Nothing has been done.
-To be fair, If you cover the top half up,
it's really...I don't know what I'm thinking any more, Frank.
Well, let's go to the... I'll go to the close-up. That'll help.
Thank you very much.
There's a slight hint that, on the upper thigh,
of a bit of cellulite, if I'm going to be totally honest.
But I think that's like,
when you sometimes get bulging of masonry on a cathedral,
around a very, very heavy gargoyle.
On the left, those legs are 26.5 million quid's worth.
What are mine worth? Nothing.
Have you put your...the pants over the top of the lace thing?
That is...that is a border...for my pants.
Oh, wow. OK. It's a slightly different garment.
I'm glad... Not many people would look at that
and talk about the pants.
You're fashion crazy.
I was quite pleased with it.
This is a man who is at work,
and I think a tricky insurance claim to fill in.
CHUCKLES IN AUDIENCE
I liked the "ow" at the end of it. Ow!
I imagine it'd be a great advert for InjuryLawyers4U.
Imagine the meeting in HR.
"So, what happened to the photocopier?" "Oh, God."
OK, so what's upsetting Ross?
Expensive water in hotel rooms. Well, anywhere, really,
but...so, I obviously travel around the world,
apart from when I'm not dum-dum-dumming.
Not happy with me!
But we'll find out later. I hope you're insured!
I am a member of the Ku Klux Klan.
But when you go to hotels, and you can't drink the water in the taps.
-You can't even clean your teeth with them, and then there's
a bottle of French Alp water and you're, like,
in South America somewhere, so how much does that cost, just in kind of carbon footprinting,
and it's there and it's got a little sign around it,
"This is 15."
It's just a rip-off from hotels, and by the people that make the stuff,
and I think it's outrageous.
Water falls from the sky or evaporates from the sea
and turns into drinkable water and they shouldn't charge 15
for a bottle of water that big.
I think it's outrageous and it's not right.
I didn't think it was legal, actually.
I thought if the water in the taps wasn't drinking water,
then they had to provide other water.
You should come on holiday with me, Sophie.
I wouldn't if I were you, Sophie!
The Taliban are not big on music.
They're quite big on murder. Well, not on the dance floor.
LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE
I, um... In 1991, I won the Perrier Award,
which was quite a big award in those days,
and I phoned up my brother, Keith, back in Birmingham,
I said, "I've won the Perrier Award."
He said, "What's that?"
and I said, "It's an award for comedy."
He said, "No - what's Perrier?"
I said, "It's-it's bottled water and they sponsor this prize, it's a really big prize,"
he said, "Hold on a minute. How much do people pay for bottled water?"
I said, "This is not what I'm calling about!
"I'm not calling you to tell you about bottled water!"
And he was so blown away by the idea of that, he had no interest in the prize at all,
so I've got a slightly strange view of the whole thing.
I also think...
I think you get to an age... I don't feel now I can carry
a plastic bottle of water in the street.
I feel I'm too old.
A bloke my age shouldn't be having a plastic bottle of water
-in the street.
-I think it's absolutely fine!
I think it's all right, too. Release yourself from that worry.
You've got to drink, mate!
You can't dehydrate because of social pressure.
I saw a geezer in central London walking a ferret.
No-one cares about you drinking water.
That's eccentric, but there's no age limit on walking a ferret.
I saw Frank Skinner the other day, you'll never guess what,
only drinking some water, weren't he?
He's gone whack job!
It depends on the size of the bottle.
If it's, like, one of those massive,
like, five-litre ones and you're like...
The water cooler.
-I suppose, at my age, I feel I should have a Thermos.
I tell you what I do like -
you know when there's those water machines and you get the paper cone,
-the pointy...I love those!
Like drinking out of a '60s brassiere.
-And, also, for a Klan meeting, you've got the hat.
-The pointy hat!
Do you ever complain at these hotels, Ross?
-About the water thing?
-Yeah, course I do.
-How does that go?
I generally end up with no teeth in a bar in Caracas.
We come to the end of that round,
and I like the enforced seating plans.
I think there's too many people who would only ever talk to their partner,
and I think that's a good thing,
although it can be a bit uncomfortable at first.
Now, these two, I like the idea of there not being insurance.
I've not really worked out... how we all cope.
Yeah, I think me might probably need insurance of some kind.
I hate to say it.
But the whole concept of bottled water is one thing,
but people taking advantage of a place
where you can't drink the water,
I mean, it's an absolute scandal.
Thus, I shall put expensive water in hotels into Room 101.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
OK, so we've just got time for a bonus choice,
so let's see what Rob has chosen.
-Not got a lot on my side here, have I?
I just hate rollercoasters.
This is... I don't want to turn it into a rally.
-They've been looking for a leader for years, these people!
I just... I just hate them because I've got enough adrenaline.
I'm always... I'm full of beans.
I don't need any more - it's too much for me to take.
I've never enjoyed them, I've always felt like I've sort of been bullied onto them,
and, like, my missus loves rollercoasters and things like that,
so when we started going out, I thought, "What I'll do is I'll go to Thorpe Park,"
went to Thorpe Park and I went on the Magic Carpet one,
and I cried.
I don't know what it is, I just break down and start crying!
I hate it, I hate it!
But then I tried again,
went to Disneyland Paris, on the Pirates Of The Caribbean ride,
there's not even a seatbelt!
There's no drop. I cried!
I cannot take it.
Is this what they mean by an emotional rollercoaster?
I don't know what it is, I just find it...
I don't like the queuing...
Two hours to make you feel like you're about to die!
It's too much for my head and body to take, going on a ridiculous fast rollercoaster.
If I get something out of a vending machine, and two bottles of drink come out, I'm happy for a week.
I am bouncing through life.
-I hate them, as well.
I'm over-cautious when I approach a speed bump.
Honestly, I went on the tea cups, the Mad Hatter's tea cups,
at Disneyland, and...with... My son was four then,
and if you turn the wheel it goes round and round,
and I remember hearing myself saying, "Yes, we've established it goes round and round!"
On the tea cups!
-I love rollercoasters and theme parks.
-You love them?
-I really, really love them.
-Oh, do you?
Do you like them? Are you into rollercoasters and stuff? No?
-Ross only goes if they're on fire.
I can't be the only person in the room that likes rollercoasters and theme parks and things!
They're really fun.
Like Derren Brown's new ride at Thorpe Park's really good, like...
-Derren Brown's got one?!
You just walk into a room and he convinces you you've been on one!
Such a great ride! Cheers, Del!
At Southend, they had a naked rollercoaster.
I don't want to get in after them!
Yeah, exactly, especially if it's really frightening!
This is the drop that...
-That's a lot of flesh. Look at that cheeky crocodile at the front!
It's when it drops like that, I'd be worried about my genitals getting too close to my face.
Maybe it's an age thing.
Very old or very lucky.
You got it right first time.
I was never much of a prankster as a youth.
There was one thing I did. I must have done this 20 times,
me and the same mate, we used to go, whenever the fair came,
we used to go on the Big Wheel or something like that,
and I used to take this on...
..and honestly, we'd be sitting...
Honestly, I'm not making this up,
we'd get to the top and I'd go...
It was tremendously success...
On one occasion, I thought a bloke was going to kill me
for frightening his missus,
but other than that, it was tremendously successful.
How do you feel about merry-go-rounds?
Merry-go-rounds? I mean, I...I don't... I'd just go on the M25 if I wanted to do that.
There is a thing you can do with a merry-go-round.
If you get a motorised vehicle and if you can get the tyre flush with the merry-go-round -
have you ever seen this done? - you can really get some speed.
Here's an example.
OK, here comes the accelerator.
Apparently, he was fine.
What a shame.
Rob, doesn't matter what I think, it's your bonus choice, it's going in to Room 101.
And that brings us to the end of the show.
Well done, Ross. You were the most persuasive guest this week
and, let's face it, the most frightening.
So, you're this week's winner.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Thanks very much to Rob Beckett,
Ross Kemp and Sophie Ellis-Bextor, and thank you, good night.
