Series 1, Episode 6 - Bonus Ball

Toast loses at poker, causing Michael Ball to come after him. He's going to have to find some money fast, and Jane believes he's landed a great role for once.

Further details

After losing £20,000 to Andrew Lloyd Webber in a celebrity poker game, Toast finds himself being hunted by musical superstar and part-time theatre-land enforcer, Michael Ball.

Needing cash quick, a desperate Toast agrees to dub some gay art house porn. When his nemesis, Ray Purchase, catches him in bed with his wife again, Toast is caught up in a life or death showdown with both Purchase and Ball on the stage of his appalling play...

Meanwhile his agent, Jane Plough, thinks he may have won the role of James Bond, if he survives.


'Bonus Ball' Theme composed by Matt Berry, arranged by David Arnold and sung by Michael Ball.
