Speaking about the final show Brendan said; “It’s been an incredible run.  I never thought when we took to the airwaves back in 2010 that we would receive such a positive reaction from viewers, so it’s been great.

“I want to say a huge thanks to Larry and the rest of the team for all their support and hard work over the years, it has been a privilege and a pleasure working with each of them.

“It’s been an amazing show to work on and it’s brilliant to be going out on such a high.  And don’t forget, I’ll be back in the New Year with a brand new show so viewers won’t have the opportunity to miss me too much!”

The final episode airs this Saturday night (May 30th) at 9.40pm.
