  • The final scene of this episode featured a parody of the music video from Love Machine by Girls Aloud with a caption reading "Girls Aloud in the Queen Vic" (as opposed to the Eskimo Club in the actual video). Bianca, Whitney, Stacey, Janine and Pat lip-synced as the original song played over the characters dancing.
  • The end credits srolled up as the end of Love Machine played and the five women walked down Bridge Street. The characters names were in lower case on the left with the actors/actresses names in capitals on the right. At the end, a shot of Tiffany blowing a kiss to the audience was shown before the logo card faded in.
  • John Partridge was credited as the choreographer and Richard Marce was credited as the Tango Advisor.
