The Ghosts Of Christmas Past
Del & Rodney

If They Could See Us Now

Transmitted: 25.12.2002
Duration: 71 minutes
Viewing Figures: 20.3 million

The Trotters lose their riches in a bad investment in the Central American Markets, and are declared bankrupt. They return to Peckham, and their Mandela House flat.

Cassandra and Rodney are finding their love life is a little flat, so they spice it up by role playing their fantasies. Cassie becomes Rodney's police woman, and Rodney doesn't quite look right as Gladiator.

Trotter familyDel appears on the game show 'Goldrush' in a last ditch attempt to win their fortune back.

Despite a phone call saying Del won a badly written final question, Del tells Mickey Pearce to stick his so-called 'fifty grand'.

Did You Know?
'Goldrush' was a last minute substitute for real life game show 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' - also the title of an earlier episode - it seemed ITV and the BBC apparently could not find a suitable arrangement so a fictional show was concocted.
Famous quote

Producer: [Shocked] Jonathon. He said give the fifty grand to charity.
Jonathon Ross: You're kidding! Oh, what a nice guy.
