In the April Fools video returning landlady Linda Carter can be seen unveiling a surprise for husband Mick in front of his daughter Frankie – in the form of renaming the pub The Lady Di after their beloved dog.
Caught by Frankie opening a package, Linda said: “It’s nothing exciting, it’s a surprise.
“It’s for all of us. I’ve been dying to have a look, I’m so excited.”
Opening the package, she gushed: “Oh my God it’s amazing. It’s even better than I thought it would be.
“I really wanted it to be a surprise, for him, for you, for all of us. I think it should be a new beginning for us all.”
Turning to the Queen Victoria statue, Linda said: “Sorry your majesty.”
Raising a glass she said: “To new beginnings.”
The camera then panned down to reveal a look at the new sign which had a picture of the Carter family’s dog Lady Di.
The sign read: “The Lady Di.”
And then outside the signage had changed removing the Queen Vic.
