Series 1, Episode 1 - World's End on Sea
Justin Edwards, Mel Giedroyc and Dave Mounfield have been invited by the mayor of seaside town World's End on Sea to perform a hair-raising tribute to Houdini.
Justin has invited the "nicest woman in showbiz", Rebecca Front, to join them. Little does he know of the history between Mel and Rebecca, dating back to an appearance they both made on Celebrity Supermarket Sweep. It turns out that Justin also doesn't know much about Houdini - believing him to be an Italian woman. Luckily Dave, fearing the show may be a disaster causing him to miss out on the free lighter promised by the mayor, is on hand to rewrite the play.
Mel persuades Rebecca to perform a radio first - a recreation of one of Houdini's most daring stunts. But will the truth of what really happened on Supermarket Sweep ever be revealed? Will the show restore the fortunes of the once fashionable seaside town? Will Dave get his free lighter?
