Harry Hill’s TV Burp was very much an iconic part of Saturday night tea time viewing during the 00s.
Whether you loved it or hated it, it’s a set up we all remember.

Out of all the moments in the thread then, which is the best? You see, I like ‘TV Highlight of the Week’, but I also like ‘stupidly crunchy toast on Emmerdale’. There’s only one way to find out…
