Happy Mondays Bend The Rulebook On Bargain Hunt

"I had to refer to the Bargain Hunt rulebook..."

Sources at the BBC are claiming that Happy Mondays caused a ruckus during their recent stint on Bargain Hunt.

Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker and Candida Doyle took on Bez and Rowetta Idah from Happy Mondays, searching for bargains at an auction in Kent.

Due to be broadcast as part of BBC Music Day on September 28th, the special episode of Bargain Hunt seems to find Happy Mondays ruffling a few feathers.

Speaking to Radio Times, show presenter Charlie Ross revealed that the episode's finale had to be re-shot:

“Suffice to say I had to refer to the Bargain Hunt rulebook. I think it’s the first time in history that we’ve had to look at it.”

Executive producer Paul Tucker added: “We had to deliver this show quite quickly after we filmed it, and of course we weren’t expecting to have to do the ending again. Although it wasn’t expected, it certainly added an interesting twist and another layer to the show. I guess it’s what you might expect from a bunch of rock ‘n’ rollers.”

The special episode of Bargain Hunt will be broadcast on September 28th.
