I’ve taken a sneak peek at the episode and it’s a very, very, brief scene. You may be likely to think “is that it?”
But it’s also good fun.
Andy & Lou have no dialogue in their scene at the ‘Scarlett Bar’ nor even gain a credit.
If you want to know what happens in the episode, read on….
In the Scarlett Bar the character of Pepper is sitting at a bar table having a conversation with another character.
As usual, several extras mill around to fill out the scene.
Then, rather obviously Andy (Matt Lucas) is wheeled in by Lou (David Walliams). They are dressed in their usual character costume.
They stop at the rear of the scene while Pepper and co continue having their discussion. Andy and Lou have some indistinguishable words (mimed) and Lou heads off to talk to Harold Bishop.
With this, Andy leaps out of his wheelchair and jumps onto a nearby motorbike video game!
He burns down the road of the game, throwing his motorbike from side to side, and all the while Pepper keeps on chatting, oblivious to the comic upstaging!
The camera cuts to Lou and Harold, deep in (mimed) conversation over a magazine article.
Then Lou jumps off his motorbike and back into his wheelchair before Andy returns. It’s just like the routine in all their sketches.
They have a few final mimed words (Lou appears to point at something with “I want that one”) but none of it is discernable.
And with that the scene is over.
The scene lasts about 90 seconds.
Effectively, Andy and Lou behave like most Neighbours extras, just with a little bit of upstaging!
It also looks like one of the first eps for British actor, and new Erinsborough resident, hunky Benjamin Hart.
Neighbours ‘Little Britain’ ep screens 6:30pm Thu June 14.
