Joe's Team: Amy Childs and Tiffany Stevenson.

Round 1: We Have Wift Off

Joe's team are in space suits. Two have nice smells pumped into their helmet, one has a terrible smell.

Ellie's team think it is Joe, it was Amy.

Round 2: Spanks But No Spanks

Ellie's team are spanked with a ruler and cane. One person has no padding.

Joe's team think it is Kian, they are right.

Round 3: Grajazzle

Joe, Brian and Kian must 'vajazzle' items. One of them is decorating an older man's private parts.

Both teams correctly guess it was Joe.

Round 4: A Worm Welcome

Brian must eat from three bird beaks. Two are nice 'meals', one is mealworm.

Joe's team guess it was the yellow bird (due to Brian's acting), when it was actually the red bird.


Ellie's team win.
