Simon: I didn’t know what was going on at any time . . .
David Williams: Simon, he was cracker, he was Batman, he was James Bond — I mean, couldn’t it have been any more obvious?

I’m going to kick this off with a “Yes”!
Ant and Dec: Come on, just need three.
David Williams: Ayesha.
Ayesha: I’m saying “Yes”.
Host: Yes! Two!
Ant and Dec: Come on! Come on!

Ant and Dec: Amanda. Come on.
Amanda Holden: David, I feel I’ve grown up with you on this show.
Ant and Dec: Come on Amanda, please.
Amanda Holden: I’ve watched you develop into the man you are now.
Ant and Dec: Come on Amada. It’s a “Yes”, it’s gotta be.
