Listen to the whole show here (thanks to ianpwilliams).

06:30 Tuesday Cheesy Song

06:33 Chris greets everyone with ‘Ahwooha’. Chris is on day sixteen off the drink. He talks about his day yesterday; talking about Kate Thornton getting kicked from Loose Women, who’s office is next door to Quiz Night’s at the studio. Chris thinks they’re nuts to get rid of her. Chris talks about the natural rise and fall of audience figures; the show is about to lose half a million listeners because of the school holidays, when listeners sleep in. Chris wants to gatecrash Loose Women today wearing a ‘Save Kate’ T-shirt. Dave thinks the seating on Loose Women is awkward. Aled has never seen it before. Chris thinks that if someone’s sleeping pattern is so bad that they miss Loose Women, they need to sort it out. Chris talks to Tina about her sleeping pattern. Someone texts in to say Loose Women have Cliff Richard on today so Chris suggests he gatecrash with his mum, who loves Cliff. Chris does another ‘Scottish is...’ skit for Loose Women.

06:45 Chris talks about the Quiz Night recording from yesterday which included Keith Lemon, David Hasselhof and his daughters which was crazy. Dave asks if the first show, airing this Friday, is the one the team watched, which it is. Dave asks if they’ve edited out the instance where Dave stood up to go to the toilet and the studio lights failed soon after. Dave explains how an hour and a half is too long to go without using the toilet. Chris just thinks he sounds old.

06:49 Chris moves the focus back to the radio show and talks about what’s coming up today. He brings up how playing The Saturdays live from T in the Park yesterday was a mistake.

06:51 Dom says he went to Enfield yesterday to look at a new car. Chris can’t believe Dom used to have a convertible. The team talk about the ideal car for Dom, perhaps a little outside his budget. Chris talks about his experience of car shopping with his dad. Dom thinks cars are too expensive. Chris starts suggesting cars again for Dom, including Aled’s Phantom.

06:59 The team talk about Penn and Teller Fool Us which Dom does the voiceover for. Chris says he tried to shoehorn Jonathon Ross’ line ‘that’s a great sound, isn’t it?’ in to his Quiz Night recording but thinks it may be too late for the cut. Some listeners text in, trying to sell their cars to Dom.

07:02 Aled is trying to get the breakfast order and has been trying to since before the show. Chris tries to guess what the team will order. Chris is going back on the drink (tonight).

07:08 Some listeners are still texting in photos of their cars for sale. Someone sent in a Bugatti Veyron, a £1million car which Dave passed on the motorway once. Chris suggests trying to blag a budget car from Top Gear or a motor bike. Dom says he once drove into a hedge on a motorbike; which leads to the story of how Chris crashed a scooter on wet leaves seconds after getting it.

07:22 Celebrity Raspberry Today’s caller is Chris Whiteman from London but originally from Dorset. Chris works in IT but stresses he isn’t a stereotype IT worker... he recently went on holiday to Marbeya. Chris tries to get Tina’s attention but Chris thinks he hasn’t a chance because he isn’t in JLS. Chris recently went to watch Essex Polo with some high-brow celebrities. Chris guesses Russell Brand but he is wrong.

08:21 Chris got measured yesterday at the gym. He is bemused but happy at the results. Chris reckons himself a cub now not a bear; Chris, Dave and Aled talk about ‘bears’ and ‘cubs’. Chris has lost an inch and half a stone.

08:26 Aled mentions that a company has sent in some cupcakes for the team. Despite his positive weight loss chat, Chris is very tempted to eat one. Tina has had one. Aled wants to help Chris overcome the temptation. Dave comes up with punching Chris every time he tries to eat the cake. He says he wants to ‘punch him thin’.

08:34 Chris says that the guy who made the cakes makes shoes which he doesn’t think is a good combination. One listener has text in a photo of his ‘ripped’ body which Aled is liking. Dom reads out a text supporting the ‘punch you thin’ theory. Chris reads out some more texts from people supporting him.

08:48 The team have been talking about the big EuroMillions draw tonight for £166,000,000. Dom wants to buy a ticket so Chris suggests sharing a ticket. Dave suggests a syndicate but Dom doesn’t want to share the big money between the entire team. The team think he is greedy but Dom tries to defend himself. Aled comes up with the idea of going into a syndicate with the listeners (of which there are 8 million). The team decide to go into a syndicate, but Tina and Dave aren’t happy with Chris buying extra tickets for himself and Dom. Dom has some figures on how much £166,000,000 is. Aled has decided to make a Twitter syndicate. The team carry on debating syndicate politics. Chris comes up with some ideas for when he and Dom win in their own syndicate.

09:01 Dom highlights the problem of Euromillions is that it’s open to all of Europe. Chris says it’s funny how the UK is happy to be part of Europe when there’s money to win. Dave thinks EuroMillions is the only benefit of being part of Europe. Chris warns the team that they better all be in work tomorrow.

09:08 Some listeners have text in about Euromillions tickets costing more in the UK. Chris is questioning Tina holding all the money in her kitty. Chris and Dave want a part of Tina’s kitty. Matthew Munnery (!/mjmunnery) on Twitter has promised to give some of his winnings to the team, if he wins. Chris appeals to the listeners that if any of them win that they give him a share. Dom and Dave also decide to make an appeal.

09:13 Aled’s Twitter syndicate is looking promising. Chris opens up a syndicate to the texts which will probably be thousands of people. Dave says Tina’s kitty will be big if they go buy that many tickets. Dave does some maths to work out how much the team are going to win in their syndicates.

09:44 Aled is having some problems with the phone system in trying togetting contestants on for Carpark Catchphrase.

09:45 Carpark Catchphrase Roy Walker had Tinchy Stryder, Dappy, Rochelle from The Saturdays and Pixie Lott over for tea last night. Holly Willoughby ran him a bath too. Roy asks if Chris some random questions. On Line 1 is contestant number 1, which is James from Doncaster. Chris asks if James wants a share of their EuroMillions win, all he wants is enough to cover his rent. On Line 2 is contestant number 2, which is Natasha from Luton. Natasha is nervous about being on the show.

Carpark Catchphrase 1: Mr Fish has been working on an ecohouse running on wind power for Jeremy Clarkson. Jeremy appreciates the work but doesn’t like the look of the house so asks Mr Fish to start again with the plans. Mr Fish says he’s done all his drawings and would need to go back to his plans. Natasha beeps in first with ‘Back to the drawing board’ which is correct!

Carpark Catchphrase 2: Mr Fish is helping run a party for a small firm of solicitors in Basingstoke. They’ve hired a special act called Tony Time who has special wings which help him fly. Tony says he won’t perform until the party livens up. Natasha beeps in again with ‘Time flies when you’re having fun’ which is correct, making her the winner!
