What are you drinking?

champagne and three parts wine.
Jeremy: I'm only drinking water. Tell

What's your stand-out moment of the night?
Mark: Scott Walker. What a coup! The
man's a genius.
Jeremy: I don't know whether he's had
some work done, but he looked very good.
Steve: My stand-out moment was talking

Jeremy: That he was a big Brummie poof.
Steve: No, I said he wore

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen's release confuse people?
Jeremy: We were hoping they'd buy the
name off us for thousands of pounds.

Steve: He's hiding in Robert Smith's
