Wearing the iconic flat cap, Cole puts in the best performance of the lot until he simply cannot stop himself from talking about football.

Having delivered a number of lines that would be at home in the popular BBC show, Cole ruins it all by adding: “Talking about Birmingham, quite fancy Villa to stay up at the moment.”
