Special1 TV, Episode 2 (BBC3): World Cup Special

Episode 2 of Special1 TV has been released, and it’s an instant classic. This one has many more laughs than the debut episode on BBC 3. It’s one of those episodes that has a little something for everyone. It’s a perfect episode to watch in the build-up to today’s England […]
