* ActorAllusion: ** In a season eight episode, Jodie Prenger plays a friend of the gang who winds up in hospital after using a dodgy diet product sold by that episode's marks. Before her acting career took off, Prenger won the UK version of TheBiggestLoser and subsequently worked as a writer on diet issues. ** In the final episode it's proposed that the now seven-person team should be called TheMagnificentSeven. Albert, played by Robert Vaughn, seems very taken with the idea.

* DirectedByCastMember: Adrian Lester directed an episode of the final series (which resulted in Mickey spending much of the episode locked in a car boot).

* FakeAmerican: One episode had what may be a triple subversion: [[spoiler: they think [=JW3=] is American. He's played by American actor Richard Chamberlain. Then it turns out the character is British, and was a FakeAmerican all along. Then it turns out that he really is American, and was a FakeBrit for a bit.]] * FakeBrit: Parodied - one episode has Albert convinced he can do accents, much to the others' horror.
