Series 1, Episode 3 - Jolly Shopper
Sean wins the trip of a lifetime and Errol gets a job working with wet fish.
Sean and Errol are playing a guessing game, but typically Sean won't tell Errol the rules.
Errol gets a job at Billingsgate Fish Market as a 'Walk Wipe'. This involves him walking around the market shouting "come an' clean yer 'ands on my coat" in the traditional manner. He enjoys his new job, but stinks to high heaven of fish, and that's after 6 showers and 8 baths!
Meanwhile while queuing in his local Jolly Shopper, Sean gets queue jumped by someone who becomes their one millionth customer. He strongly objects and the man has a heart attack, promoting Sean to claim the award: 'A Dream Come True', the trip of a lifetime paid for by Jolly Shopper. He chooses a trip to Anfield, where his wish is to kick a wet football at Emlyn Hughes' son.
