Sam & Mark's Big Friday Wind-Up Wikipedia
Each episode begins with Sam & Mark speaking to children in the audience who are said to have an embarrassing member of their family. They happen to bring out one of the audience member's mother/father and get them to do their embarrassing feat. They allow their children to get back at them by playing a game called 'Mum/Dad on a Wheel' which has been recently changed to 'Mum/Dad Pin Bowling'.
Another segment is 'In Yer House' which involves Sam & Mark having to put on a disguise and play-act towards a certain child/victim without being seen, and once they are, they are 'rumbled'. There are four rounds to this game.
Episode 1 was a Christmas special which aired over 1 month before the start of the main series (episodes 2 - 11)
Like the last series, episode 1 was a Christmas special which aired just under 1 month before the start of the main series (episodes 2 - 11)
