We’re there for the boys and girls and parents and inviting them to do all the thing they used to, and more! It’s all very exciting and I can’t wait to be on telly with the boys again. People out there need a bit of mayhem, madness and boldness and that’s what we hope to deliver.’ 

‘33 years after we started, we’re going back on the telly live!’ said Zig and Zag this afternoon. ‘We’re going to have brilliant craic,’ added Dustin.
