Ralf Little, 41, has spoken about his drunken appearance on game show The Weakest Link back in 2006, which he filmed after treating himself to a beer. The Death In Paradise star recalled how he and his Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps co-star Will Mellor were “p***ed” when they went on the programme.
I’m still angry
Ralf opened up on the hilarious moment while talking to Will on their Two Pints podcast.
He said: “Do you remember us on The Weakest Link by the way?
“I’m still angry about that.”
Will answered: “We spoke about this before.”
Ralf continued: “Ah yeah we did talk about it, I’m still…”
Will recalled: “We kept calling Lembit [Opik], Limpit, cause we were p**sed!”
Ralf laughed: “We were p**sed with a beer on The Weakest Link.
“I remember we got the first round, all correct and I went, ‘Yeah have that [Anne] Robinson’ and she loved us.”
The pair appeared on the couples edition of the show alongside politician Lembit Opik, weather host Sian Lloyd, plus Diana Ingram and Charles Ingram, who were best known for the coughing major scandal on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?.
Ralf reflected on the experience: “Me and you so didn’t give a s**t in those days, so just, like, cheeky.”
Will added: “We’re young!”
Anne Robinson hosted the game show, which ended back in 2017.

She was known for her particularly acerbic presenting style, and would often grill the contestants on a range of topics, including their style choices.
The presenter is set to make her debut on Countdown tonight after replacing Nick Hewer as host of the quiz show.
Elsewhere, Will and Ralf marked the 20th anniversary of when Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps first aired on the BBC.
Written by the show’s original creator Susan Nickson, they created a sketch that saw the two reprise their roles as Jonny and Gaz.
The five-minute video ends with Ralf’s character Jonny asking to borrow some money so he can come back to the UK, hinting that the show could return in the future for new episodes.
Given that we’ve seen revivals of some of the BBC’s most loved sitcoms, such as The Vicar of Dibley and Gavin and Stacey in recent years, a reunion could be on the cards.
One hopeful fan wrote: “Loved this show!! Hope they do another episode after watching this,” while another said: “Oh please please bring it back!!!”
