Stephen made fun of the town jokingly calling it ‘Boringstoke’ after one of the participants, who came from Berkshire, wouldn’t stop talking.

However, Dec gave a shout out on the show to Basingstoke residents who had come to watch the filming and cheer them on.

Hundreds of people headed to Asda on Monday to watch the filming, including many who gathered outside Acute Look Hair & Beauty, in Brighton Hill parade, where Ant, Dec and Stephen were filming.

On the show, the pair were seen inside the hairdressers where they guessed whether people with towels on their heads had hair or no hair.

The duo were also filmed inside Asda supermarket where they challenged several shoppers to play a hilarious game of ‘higher or lower’ with food items.
