Series 1, Episode 3 - Clenton

Justin, Mel, Dave and special guest Clare Grogan tell the life story of Annie Oakley via sketches, songs and some unplaceable accents.

Further details

Justin, Mel and Dave are in the fictional town of Clenton to perform a poorly researched reenactment of the life of Annie Oakley, the gun toting legend of the Wild West.

Due to Mel's terrible American accent, Justin has asked Clare Grogan to take on the main role - much to Mel's annoyance - while Dave is trying to boost the sales of his homemade fish paste by getting a celebrity endorsement. Things take a turn for the worse after Clare, inspired by her criminal alter ego, goes off script.

Will Mel ride to her old friends' rescue? Will they be able to understand what she says if she does?
