Strange ending to episode 7.

All though it was funny, some clips of Jeremy Hardy were inserted near the end of the episode. For no reason or explanation. Very strange.

Funny as always, shame it doesn't include the

extra material from the news quiz extra shows as this often funnier and helps with th flow of the show.
