Trivia: Never Mind the Buzzcocks

  • Hey, It's That Guy!: A lot of guests are B-list actors. Simon once actually introduced a guest as "that guy from that thing".
  • Missing Episode: The episode with Russell Brand as team captain was pulled on account of his involvement in the prank phone calls to Andrew Sachs row. It finally aired in early 2011.
  • Money, Dear Boy:
    • Catherine Tate joked about not knowing much about music but agreeing to host the show because her kitchen extension wouldn't pay for itself.
    • As part of an overall pattern of self-deprecation while hosting, James Blunt asked where the world would be without his hit song "You're Beautiful," and then followed it up by saying that he'd be living in a "much much much smaller house."
    • While guest hosting, Josh Groban claimed that he made a guest appearance on Glee for artistic reasons: "I made a statue — out of cash."
  • Old Shame:
    • Sean's old Channel 4 sitcom Sean's Show, which Mark claimed they doubled the viewing figures of every time they showed a clip to everyone on both teams. Also Phill's involvement with Red Wedge (see below).
    • When Vic Reeves was on, Mark tormented him (in revenge for constantly being referred to as a "Fifties Throwback" on Shooting Stars) by repeatedly playing the opening bars of a bizarre song apparently entitled "Bo, Fantasia!" that Vic recorded in his youth.
    • And poor Simon
  • Shout-Out: To Doctor Who in Series 28 : One round of the ID parade featured people with miscellaneous headgear behind paper screens and unlike normal, had to be identified by voice. One of the people wore a Cyberman helmet visible by silhouette, so if he was the correct answer, he would have to break through the paper screen.
  • What Could Have Been: The show was originally going to be named solely after the Sex Pistols album, but The BBC thought that might be a bit much. You can kind of see their point.
