"Do you wanna bet on it? You Bet! Well you'd better get on it! You Bet! So don't fret, get set, are you ready? You Bet!"

B-List celebrities sponsor members of the public and place bets on whether they can do outlandish things, like remembering different types of windmills, or fishing in really specific spots on lakes. But if they weren't betting on these things, they'd probably be gambling on the outcomes of bare-knuckle monkey boxing bouts in underground criminal hideouts. Bruce Forsyth did everyone a favour really.

"I'm the joker in the pack, which makes me such a lucky jack, and here they are, they're so appealing, okay dollies, do your dealing."

Only cards though, not drugs.

It's Bruce's Play Your Cards Right, another Bruce Forsyth gameshow that required his name at the beginning and women wearing very few clothes. For a reason. Not that Mark and Martyn are paying attention to that, as they're busy practicing their excellent Brucie impressions.
