Do they get to play their jokers for double points and then hit each other with giant inflatable marshmallow sticks into the water ??

We won't mention the permanently chortling presenter now detained at Her Majesty's Pleasure, but a shout out for Eddie Waring and Arthur Ellis who donned natty jackets for the ITAKO/JSF versions of the show, long before a certain Michael Portillo inflicted his form of sartorial elegance among us.
