Crack open those spandex dungarees as we head over to the beautiful Greek islands and talk all about the super-smash hit ‘Mamma Mia!’ In a bid to drive Tommy over the edge, the boys are once more going head-to-head over the merits of this show. They talk all about what has made it such a phenomenon, Jimi explains away the mysteries of the Eurovision Song Contest and the guys finally open up about their opinions on jukebox musicals.
