Muzza spent a lot of time trying to get Kane’s rugby career started last week, mostly through partaking in gay-friendly sketch comedy and calling it “the email” instead of email. Talking of speaking out of line, Garrett and new face Victoria had an exchange that would send Carrie to prom, if you know what I mean…
