GET STUFFED used to get transmitted throughout the UK in the ITV late night schedule - but it ain't being transmitted at the moment and we dunno when it's gonna get transmitted again. Quite frankly, we're working our butts off trying to get the series on air, either in the UK or elsewhere on the globe. Keep an eye on the Transmission Info section of this website for any new news.
It’s like when you were a kid and, sometimes as a big treat, you’d get to stay up way past your usual bedtime to watch something special on TV. Well, getting to watch GET STUFFED *IS* a big treat so, just to make you appreciate how special it really is, we put it on as late as possible.
What’s more, if we put GET STUFFED on any earlier, you might not be able to watch it cos you might be out, or at work, or in a pub, or something. With the show on so late, there’s just no excuse to get to your television.
If, and when, the series is on air, your best bet is to video GET STUFFED and make your own notes of how to prepare the individual dishes. At the end of each episode, there's a summery of the things that you need to do to prepare any dish. If you'd like to try some typical get stuffed-style dishes there are a few recipes elsewhere on this site. Or, of course, you could always buy the COOKBOOK which we're always happy to flog ya.
Sorry, the series isn't currently in production - but who knows what the future may hold?
They're all friends, or friends of friends , of LAST DITCH TELEVISION who produce the series. They all lived within 30 minutes drive from Last-Ditch TVs headquarters because we conld never afford to travel any further afield.
They are a couple of raging idiots who dress in chefs’ uniforms and wear silly kids’ party masks. They accidentally did a good deed for GET STUFFED at its very beginning and we haven’t been able to shake them off since. Soon they became famous and, trapped within almost every episode of GET STUFFED, you’ll find their own even more ludicrous cookery show called “THE MYSTERY CHEFS”. Unfortunately, The Mystery Chefs are a fixture, viewers rave for them and it’s impossible to get rid of the sods. To prevent further trouble, their true identities must forever remain a mystery but I can reveal that they are a couple of louche, loudmouthed, dangerous and untalented louts who should be avoided at all costs. Once, one of them hurled a plate of spag. bol. at Johnny Vaughan and he hasn’t sent us a Christmas card since. Wot a birddog!
For more about the Mystery Chefs, see the “Mystery Chefs” page that is elsewhere on this site.

The Mystery Chef inserts were always filmed late at night in the producer’s own sitting room and, as you might have guessed, there was always a lot of alcohol sloshing around. Once, the very last thing that needed to be filmed was a pastry making demo - which the Mystery Chefs explained with their usual gusto; i.e. great clouds of flour whooshed up in the air and all over the face of one of the chefs. As soon as the filming was over everybody left, except for one white-faced and inebriated Mystery Chef who immediately collapsed and fell asleep on the sofa. At 4 o’clock in the morning, he woke up feeling very, very groggy and totally disorientated but, no matter how hard he tried, he was totally unable to open his eyes. It took him half an hour, groping around on hands and knees before he remembered the earlier incident with the flour and realised that it had mixed with his drunken tears to form a kind of flour-paste glue around his eyelids. That was weird because nobody ever thought that something so stupidly unpredictable could be the cause of so much damage. I suppose that’s what they mean by “Blind drunk”.
Altogether, there are 284 episodes of GET STUFFED. Most episodes are about five and a half minutes long, but some episodes have also been re-formatted into thirty minute specials. There is even a GET STUFFED cookbook!
