“It is so lovely to have you with us,” Josie said at the beginning of the programme. “And lovely to have you with me as well Mr Craig Doyle!” she added.

“Thank you, it’s nice to be back – it’s nice to be allowed to come back into the studio,” Craig joked.

“We’re usually in charge of giving the money away,” Josie said. “We’ve been given the driver’s seat, we just need to hope we don’t crash the car.”

“I’d rather see a normal Josie rather than one that’s been Photoshopped,” another sniped.
