Capri On Ant & Dec Next Week

Postby pbar » Sat Feb 15, 2014 9:21 pm

Just noticed a trailer on TV for Ant & Dec's show next Saturday, and there is a Capri on there for a part of the show they are doing. And the car happens to be for sale on ebay -

Hi,
Thanks for the heads up.
I saw this listing the other day, although I haven't seen the trailer for the show yet.
I'm going to have to watch the show until the Capri bit is shown, then I'll change channels. :lol:
IMO calling the car a "classic famous car" in the Ebay title is laying it on a bit thick!
All the best,
Andrew.

Despite being at home on Saturday night I just couldn't bring myself to watch these twerps.
Did the Capri make an appearance at all ?

Hi,
I've had to sit through another episode of this without the Capri making an appearance, except in a trailer for a future episode! I hope it comes on next week, I've got better things to do on a Saturday night. :D
Come on A & D, sort it out!
All the best,
Andrew.

Same here! I even wasted electric (again) with recording it in case I missed the vital clip. Here's to next week then.

From their appearances in soaps you`d think they were quite common cars; I saw one last summer & one the summer before that...

Didn't one make a frequent appearance in Eastenders recently? Alfie's car I think? They seem to place them in programmes to assist in giving someone a certain type of 'character'.

Alfie`s had one for years, that got scrapped & he`s now got another.. If you remember back a few years, the BEST soap, Brookside - Ron Dixon had one. There is definitely a trend there.

(Not that I watch soaps like..... :whistle: )

Hi,
Please don't tell me I have to start watching Coronation Street, Eastenders and old episodes of Brookside as well as Ant and Dec! There are more Capris on the screen than on the streets these days!
All the best,
Andrew.

My point exactly, you could think they were still in production there are so many on TV.

Don't worry Steve, your incredibly informative, accurate and detailed soap info there makes it obvious that you just don't watch them at all. :D

Unfortunately they're hard to get away from, they're on that often.

It also looked immaculate on the ebay ad, the car was sold a few days ago. Maybe all will become clear after it's been on Ant & Dec.

Perhaps "The Duke" drives this Capri in real life and Ant & Dec wreck a substitute identical car in a Beadle's About type stunt!
No, I'm not being serious, but I am interested in seeing what happens to the car as it did appear to be wrecked in the preview.
All the best,
Andrew.
