But there are many shouders to stand on here. When Ellen couldn't come to Viva La Gong, Jem worked on the act with Chantel.....reworked it in a bit of a different way.

It has been performed with different people adding a different character to it each time including Jen Webster, Louise London, Ella Hogan.
