just look what you could've won!

3-2-1 was famous for its cheap and tacky prizes and for couples taking home only a brand new metal dustbin if the final clue revealed was Dusty Bin. However 3-2-1 has also become notorious for prizes that would be unacceptable today. On at least two occasions a pet dog was the prize (Show 1 featured 'a St. Bernard and a year's supply of whisky'). Other less extravagant prizes have included: a sofa that turns into a pool table, gold nuggets, a family set of folding bicycles and matching 'his and hers' sheepskin coats.

well you might have guessed ladies and gents..my 'fling' number is no other than 3-2-1! who knows, we might just be travelling back with a matching set of sheepskins. but more than likely the words..'just look what you could've won' will ring true.

I used to love 3-2-1 when I was a kid - tackiness at its genius best!
The unfathomable clues used to do my head in though.

Well, you know what is usually said after 3-2-1 GO!

So go and have a good one and enjoy!
