There's a heat wave on and Producer Dave is dressed like the man from Del Monte's successful nephew.

Elis went on a stag do in Wales that involved a hike. Meanwhile, John received samples of the new Queen beer, Bohemian Lager.

John takes apart Kanye West's version of Bohemian Rhapsody at the weekend's Glastonbury Festival.
