Who could forget those bleak months when we had to witness the torturous vandalism used on Adam's face in the iPlayer wing of the Big British Castle?

Obviously, a beardy Buckules would have been overly sexy for the Radio Two area so we have Angel Buckles instead but at least we can see him properly.
Poor Liza now suffers the pirate patch treatment (which looks more like a Frownie on her) and an attempt at face flagging although, since she's a lady, they have not completely covered her.
