Also featured are a parody documentary in which soap actress Bo Beaumont, creator of the iconic Boadicea Overall in 'Acorn Antics' tries to revive her flagging career by auditioning for reality shows though it becomes apparent she has no talent and coverage of the mid-life Olympics where medals are awarded for shopping and assembling flat pack furniture. The finale sees Victoria perform her famous Ballad of Freda and Eric, accompanied by dozens of tap-dancing Freda and Eric look-alikes. Written by don @ minifie-1 See less
