Nah. Mrs Brown.

Rory tests the latest pink Fiat 500 Hybrid in an urban trawl around the country's tanning salons, nail bars and hairdressers.

Dermot presents a feature on attempts by manufacturers to improve vehicle security and shows us some of the latest Twoc techniques with cut-aways to live joyriding action, filmed on iphones, with a studio-based judging panel.

The compulsory 'water feature' has Winnie Mcgooghan testing the replacement for the Yellow Duck on a 48 hour pub crawl with her mates up the River Shannon.

Just watched it back on Iplayer. At face value, not wearing an impact vest and helmet may seem stupid, however the ski is a big stable beast and 40mph on a jetski is barely moving.

You havent been able to buy a sit down that was that slow since the early 90's, the chance of falling off has got to be virtually zero. He wasnt doing any tricks, drove in a straight line accross an inland lake and was surrounded by safety boats.

How dangerous was it really ? Not very IMHO
