Crowd: Yes!

Jamie Oliver: Lovely bit of the old smoked salmon.  Hark at you lot!

Jamie Oliver: Are we going the wrong way?  It’s like they’ve never been fed!  Here we go, and drop it all on daddy’s head.  ‘Ere [here] mate, just pull over here.  Come on you lovely people!  These mince pies are freshly-baked throughout the day at Sainbury’s. Lovely.  Right mate, next town?  Sainsbury’s, taste the difference:  Norfolk black turkey – free range for some of the freshest, most succulent meat you’re ever gonna [going to] have.  Love it.  ‘Ere [here] we go.
