Mr Littleproud was presented with 10 of his 11 books on the house.

Mr Perrett on the other hand, handed Dexter one of his business cards to remember him by and being the witty man Dexter is, he replied "you can buy one of my books to remember me by”.

Mr Littleproud and

Mr Perrett were both looking forward to reading the books, but were warned by Dexter that they were addictive.
