Only one more day to go until the fangs go in, the claws come out and the dead rise from the earth to have one hell of a party. BUT before rounding off our Halloween Week here on the blog we had one final task... to ask Aidan, Russell and Lenora for their favourite Halloween memories.

    Ooh!! Fun. :) What was the guy doing to Aidan near the start?

  • Comment number 2.

    Aidan is getting a microphone fitted at the start, ready for the next scene.

  • Comment number 3.

    Where can I get one of those pumpkins?? I want one :)

    Russell's first halloween costume sounds a bit fancy.... I remember being stuck with a black bin bag and fangs drawn on with a felt tip pen!

  • Comment number 4.

    My very first post says it's awaiting moderation?? Does that always happen? All I said was I wanted one of those pumpkins!

  • Comment number 5.

    Thank BH Prod. :)

    MrsIzzard, when everyone posts the first time it gets modded. I think it's to stop spam or something.

  • Comment number 6.

    Seems like working with those 3 would be a riot!! Russell cracks me up! A dead tramp!! LMAO!

    Really looking forward to tomorrow...it will great watching their comedy act live! :o)

  • Comment number 7.

    Finally i get to post early on the stream! yay.

    Love their ideas, didn't catch what Aid's favourite halloween game was, he seemed to agree alot and has played most of them. *gushing quietly to oneself*

  • Comment number 8.

    To any of you going tomorrow - have fun guys (so jealous). And hope you get plenty of pics and things while you're there - remember no matter how much you love them don't scare them too much! lol

  • Comment number 9.

    Sooo excited! Another great vid from the BH team! You are so good to us guys!

    Hi: C, MrsIzzard and Melvira! Hopefully see you tomorrow Melvira!

    BH3 must be a great laugh to be around!

    soooo excited (Already said that once!) about tomorrow now! Hope they're all there!

    I remember dressing up as a Skeleton for halloween....my mum cut out lots of bone shapes, painted them with some special glow-in-the-dark paint and sewed them on black clothes! Fab

    I've got some little glow-in-the-dark skeletons to bring to Nottingham tomorrow!

    Hi Racey: Didn't see you there! I'm going to be very VERY good tomorrow; they won't even know I'm there (I promise!)

  • Comment number 11.

    Hi Joooos Remember to introduce yourself to Sinead - she did ask you to!

  • Comment number 12.

    I was always a witch for Halloween.

  • Comment number 13.

    (11): yes, she did, and I will! I hope I get the opportunity to.... But as far as a certain vampire is concerned, he won't even know I'm there...unless I faint!

    (12): I've been a witch too...another fab costume my mum made! She made me into a fat witch for some reason, just to be different, I think! (even though I was really skinny then!)

  • Comment number 14.

    A dead tramp. Really Russell, doesn't that strike you as being a little, well, morbid? I suppose it was creative and original. I think I've been a witch to every halloween party ever. No wait, I did once go as Mortisher Adams, but withces are better.

  • Comment number 15.

    SQUEE!! Thanks for the heads up on this Joooos!! *huggles* Hiya everyone!! *hugz Cieria, Racey, MrsIzzard and Melvira*

    Aww, how lovely is that? It seems they all had a really fun time in Halloween's gone by. It seems Russell's always had that dressing up/acting bug, bless his cotton socks. :D And aww, Aidan's still trying to get at those chocs, isn't he? lmao And isn't Lenora just the sweetest! Halloween with these guys (and Sinead, Toby, Matt and Colin!) will just be amazing!!

    Ohhh, MrsIzzard (3), I'm with you! I SOOOO want one of those pumpkins! I wanted one BEFORE I knew it made noises and moved! lmao
    Hey BH Prods... is it possible that you could perhaps ask our favourite trio to bring the pumpkin to Nottingham tomorrow? LOL Gah, yeah I know its a silly request. Forget I asked...

    Melvira (6)!!! Can't wait - hope we see you tomorrow sweetie! *bounces* Are you coming in costume?

    Heeey Racey (8), we wouldn't scare any of the lovely cast or crew or creators intentionally. ^^ *keeps on bouncing, almost like a spacehopper*
    :D KC

  • Comment number 16.

    (15): Oooh, you're all so lucky to be going. I don't really have much to get excited about, and I don't think I've bounced like a spacehopper since Episode 3, Gilbert fun....

  • Comment number 17.

    Well..good to see rest of the Halloween vid
    ….mmmm Russell…a better line might have been ‘don’t waste the free range eggs…throw the organic’ :)

    Loved the singing pumpkin!

    Now…Aidan baby….you know I love you…. but I have to say this….what is going on?
    …all that munching of sweeties and chocolate is affecting your ability to speak…and c’mon….we both know that the Irish can blag for the world ……..of course you know about that Guy Fawkes chappie…..he ‘allegedly’ …some time back….was involved in a plot to blow up some Big House….in London I believe….

  • Comment number 18.

    Hello everyone whom I can't name but who has posted for this vid, sorry am hyper tonight...no chocs, don't eat it, but the thought of tomorrow...

    Lovely vid, they're very energetic....Aidan still has that slightly manic grin but I think that's probably partly him, after the chocolate high.... they've come down from that, I'm glad to say....

    Ahem, now eggs....as Lenora (the sensible one) said, it is not a good idea to egg a house....even with organic ones, Russell....and Aidan, please stop egging him on.

    Those two are like a couple of kids lol....I bet they're great to be around, full of fun....how do you cope, Lenora!

    And what exactly did Aidan flick over Lenora's left shoulder?? lol

    Thanks again BH TEAM....you lovely people, you know just what to do to make us happy!

  • Comment number 19.

    I'm out shortly so this will be my last blog of evening...

    Ok …..Nottingham in the morrow. and to all of you going.
    I have tickets and hopeful that we might get there but as some of you know it’s a complex situation. Man doesn’t really want to go ...nothing to do with bloggers or BH or me…..and no he’s not a wimp but there’s no way I’m leaving him on his own this particular weekend.
    We have the loan of a car from a great friend who is even giving us the petrol…but we can only have it for the pm ….long drive but only way we could afford to get there. Man knows I want to go and he wants to do right by me and his family.
    So….if we go..we could be late …..and will have to leave sharpish….maybe even before end depending on how long the Q&As go on for. We may meet up briefly..we may not….for me it will have to be enough to have got there and seen the cast and Toby on stage…not perfect but there we go.
    I’ll try to take a few pics if we go…..I’ll leave videos to those of you who are used to them

    Assuming we go, when we return we’ll first spend a few hours with Man’s brother to sort out some things for Sunday. Should be home by 10ish….I’ll post a blog then plus any pics if they turn out.

    I won’t be posting on Sunday until late pm….

    For all those of you definitely going to Nottingham….enjoy….and make some noise!

    I hope you and your man get to go Brown (19) - I'm not up to speed on your situation but let me know if I can help. If you're there, remind me - "goody bag". ;)

    ^^ KC

  • Comment number 21.

    Hope you can make it Brown.
    Thoughts are with you this weekend x

  • Comment number 22.

    (3) MrsIzzard - i think the pumpkin is from sainsburys! i saw it on tv earlier! i really want one too, but we don't have a sainsburys here :(

    i'm so excited for tomorrow!
    see some of you there.. maybe!

  • Comment number 23.

    Oh Russell, egging the house, how terrible of you!

  • Comment number 24.

    Allanah (22) Yes I've seen one in Sainsbury's!! Didn't buy it though, saving money for this weekend..

    Getting nervous now, god knows why I won't get a look-in with the cast! lol

  • Comment number 25.

    Anglo, got you at last.!! Tweeting not working at mo.... I was briefly in town today getting a bag for tomorrow, half asleep, in another world, hoping to get home for SJA.....and I never thought to go in Sainsburys.!! Couldnt find any Hershey choc either....darn. See you and all the rest in Nottingham......may come on again before bed....want to catch SJA and watch BH ep 4 my favourite,turning in.!!!

  • Comment number 26.

    Hi Brilliant....only found the pumpkin thing in Sainsbury's by accident.... wonder if the BH team got it in the same Sainsbury's I go to for my groceries cos it's not too far from where they park sometimes....

    May see you (or hear a post) from you before you turn in, depends what time I bed down, too.....just managed to inflate Eagle's bed....tried it out and got the giggles....got on it and couldn't get off....imagined all sorts of things involving a vampire man with a loverly chest, accent and stuff watching me trying to get my ass off this damn bed and laughed even more...

    Just don't remind me of this tomorrow! See you then x

  • Comment number 27.

    Thats ep 3 my fave, Gilbert one.!! Very tired, and theres lots on DT site, read/watched some...Up early tomorrow to finish what I cant do now....simply must watch BH before bed.!!! See you tomorrow, Ill be in the black converse and proberbly a wolf t-shirt, and trousers.!If the t fits, if not Dracula one.! Night night to you and Eagle....cant wait for tomorrow...

  • Comment number 28.

    Kinkyclaws: (15) No, doubt I'll be in costume. Although I'm supposedly going to my cousins Halloween party tomorrow night. Might get the Gothic dress out and put some dark make-up on for that!

    Will be nice to see you all tomorrow, but I get the feeling I'm the oldest blogger on here. Mmmmmm. And how will we know who each other is??? Another mmmmmm. How old is everyone?? I daren't say!! :oO

  • Comment number 29.

    Thanks for the heads up about Sainsburys for the pumpkin... I may need to change my shopping arrangements this week :) Hope everyone has a great time in Nottingham.. am not in the slightest bit jealous of course...

  • Comment number 30.

    hope you all have a great time tomorrow say hi to the cast for me and take lots of photos k nighty night for now

  • Comment number 31.

    Aaw Have fallen deeply in love with the pumpkin it's just so sweet.

    Think Aidan was well in touch with his inner child that day.

    Thank God Lenora was there to inject a little common sense.

    Happy Halloween everyone xx

  • Comment number 32.

    Thinking of you all... no doubt the sight of our three (hope all three maybe four)of our BH idols in the flesh!!! has got the adrenalin going.

    Refused to go out tonite cant wait to see your posts and pics maybe?

    Happy Halloween x

  • Comment number 33.

    OMG guys... just got in from the kids party and the update on those horridly lucky people off to nottingham... some of them met Aidan!! and one even HUGGED russell!!!! and apparently Sinead was loverly and even recognised the group!!! Unfortunately no word on the kidnap attempt, pmsl...

    And they said the preview was great and involved LOTS of naked George, George in a cage and George getting.... ahem... jiggy with it, pmsl!!

  • Comment number 34.

    Waayy!! was so completely taken up by the weekend's events...I completely missed this little gem.
    Thanks again Team.
    Aidan....You sooo know about Guy Fawkes.
    Aidan....Do you ever stop eating boy?

  • Comment number 35.

    Lmao how had I not seen that?! I remember seeing the first bit about russells dead tramp then my internet probably cut out as it does but thats brilliant - and Aidan you're talking out your arse boy! It might be quite nice but you're still talking out of it - they soooo have bonfire night in Ireland! I have family and friends in ireland and they do - think maybe your friends just went out to play without you lol although I have to say only the british would encourage kids to celebrate a lboke being burnt at the stake by playng with explosives...

  • Comment number 36.

    *bloke even

  • Comment number 37.

    Oh and lyssa just read the "one even hugged russell" Ahem did I mention that was me at all? Dunno if I might have kept it quiet or anything you know :-P hugged aidan too just so you know but it was a lot briefer...russell got much more into it :-D

  • Comment number 41.

    I can't see any of these videos, they're not permited in my area, that sucks.

  • Comment number 42.

    I realize I'm posting this a year later & probably no one will read this, but what's the name of the game they were talking about after apple bobbing? They said "murder the dog"? I couldnt really make it out & wasnt familiar with it since I'm American.
