Trivia

+The word ‘fuck’ is only allowed to be used once in every series. It always appears in the last episode.

+ The title is a reference to the 1980 hit single “Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps Please” by Splodgenessabounds.

+ In the first series, the “Girl’s Pub” is the Mayhew, while the “Boy’s Pub” is the Archer (in subsequent series only the Archer is used), a reference to script editor Paul Mayhew-Archer.

+ There are three different versions of how Jonny and Janet got together. In the first series, Gaz states that Jonny left his previous girlfriend for Janet. In series 2, it’s Janet who left her boyfriend, Andy, for Jonny. In the musical special, they are both single and meet in a nightclub
