    • Narrator: Britain, Britain, Britain! There's so much to see and do here. Why not get stuck in the one-way system in Birmingham? Or get caught up in a fight in a pub car park in Swansea? Or why not get food poisoning from a motorway service cafe just outside Stoke? But our greatest attraction is the people of Britain. Hip-hop don't stop!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Abi Titchmarsh: Cheeky reference to Abi Titmuss

      Vicky insists she'll be the next "Abi Titchmarsh" - there's no such person, but there is a certain lady called Abi Titmuss, who some time ago, had many revelations reported about her in the press. Abi Titmuss also happens to be David Walliams girlfriend.

    • Cliff Maxford: Play on the name of a real person.

      Vicky attempts to sell a controversial story about footballers to a publicist called Cliff Maxford. This name is a spoonerism in reference to Max Clifford a real publicist reknown for acting as agent to people trying to sell "kiss-and-tell" stories about celebrities to tabloid newspapers.
