Poppa Diddly's heir to the throne, @alexdiddly, is back to host episode 31 of Don't Touch The Bugles, the podcast where six brothers from other mothers chew the fat on the most random of topics.

In typical, unscripted fashion, the guys start this weeks show with a treat from overseas as Diddly manages to get his Mediterranean hands on some non-standard flavours of everyones favourite cone shaped snack and the inspiration to the name of this podcast, it's Bugles! A pop song of old dedicated to everyone's favourite fake Mexican, Angelo, is shared with the group before his birthday gift reveal, part 2, commences. An invention from Diddly's Poppa goes worldwide and makes a TV appearance, there's an 18 mile bike ride with mega frustrations and an update on Teddy's charity ride too. Ellwood tells us all about his open and itchy gash, Chunk tells all about his 80's and 90's rave and there's a new king of the tea (not something we ever thought we'd talk about on here!)

The Bugles League is back with a brand new jingle too and then its onto this weeks topic which is 'first and worst gigs'. Wow, listen up for some horrors!

Finally, it's Weird Shit of the Week which this week includes Robot strippers, a Spanish drugs raid and a builder doing a shitty job!

As ever, all this and more so download, share and enjoy.

This week's episode is brought to you by @angelobugle, @jiggsofbugle, @chunkybugle, @vancan41 and @alexdiddly

Don't Touch The Bugles has hit another milestone everyone and this time it's the big 3-0, that's right.....The Bugles have managed to squeeze out every last drop of bullshit they have into 30 episodes and there'll be plenty more of where that came from so buckle up and enjoy, as @angelobugle is hosting.

There's a very heartfelt and poignant message from Jiggs to start this week's episode and we urge you to listen to his very wise words carefully. Don't forget, it's always OK to ask for help and it's always OK not to be OK. If you don't have anyone to talk to, we sincerely mean it when we say, reach out to The Bugles for someone to share a problem with. 

Then the guys recap on their week which includes talk of the annual Bugles and Buglettes summer bash. This year, there's a game which involved Diddly face planting the ground, Angelo's weak arm is exposed, Chunk dropping balls on his face and Ellwood paying someone to 'lick the cricket'.

Angelo talks about another stupid impulse buy from the weekend, Jiggs had a new claim to fame only weeks after the guys revealed all theirs, there's an update from a Bugle who recently went Glamping and the guys each share their life mottos.

It's then onto this week's topic which is 'What would you put into room 101?'. This is the chance for the Bugles to convince one another that they have something so annoying, it should be banished and never to be seen again. There's even listener nominations - and some bloody good ones too!

Enjoy as ever and listen again next week for more from your favourite podcast.

@JiggsofBugle is your host this week as The Bugles are back at Podcast HQ for another episode of your favourite show.

Things start with a flashback to last weeks show as some late 'Claim to Fame' entries from listeners are read out before The Bugles each discuss who the most famous celebrity they've physically met before is. 

There's a Salt and Vinegar crisp debate, talk about two rappers (just to be clear, that's rappers not wrappers!) and then out of the blue, another Bugle turns up......along with a cryptic message from his dad. You can probably guess which Bugle it is but can you work out what Poppa was saying?

It's one of the Bugles birthday and a surprise gift opening takes place before things move onto the main topic this week. Now you need to listen carefully to this bit because it could happen in real life and the guys have you sorted should that ever happen. The topic this week is 'how to survive a zombie apocalypse. Just a little warning for you, don't follow @angelobugle's ideas, some would say they're a tad on the unrealistic side of things!

Finally, it's Weird Shit of the Week which this week includes stories involving sex prevention toilets, a Thai chef who went AWOL on his way home, Donald Trump being Donald Trump and there's a Cabbage-gate update.

All this and much much more from the fanatics of crunchy cone shaped snacks, which this week included @chunkybugle, @jiggsofbugle, @alexdiddly and @angelobugle

We're on the fun bus again this week as the Bugles take a trip down the road from Podcast HQ to Casa Ellwood as the Canadian wanabee, @vancan41, is back to host episode 28.

There's no maple syrup on show for this episode but the guys do get off to a sweet start by chowing through some mammoth sized doughnuts whilst Angelo heads back to podcast HQ to get some of the vital recording equipment he forgot. What a douche!

As ever, it's another random catch up of the week gone by including Ellwood's rejected dinner date and a Bugles golfing day out which resulted in them being eaten alive by mozzies. Ouchie! There's an update on the Don't Touch The Bugles podcast YouTube channel (go check it out by the way!) and whilst we're getting digital, listeners of episode 27 will remember Jiggs put a half eaten tub of Marmite on Ebay. Did it sell? On that note, the Bugles come up with a mini Ebay challenge of their own but we won't say what it is....find out in this episode.

Teddy talks about a previous run in with the boys in blue - no, not his beloved Everton but rather the long arm of the law!

Finally, the guys get onto their 'claims to fame' which include being on TV, being on the radio, being in the newspaper and the most obvious one, being a Bugle!

@chunkybugle is back to host episode 27 of your favourite podcast - well we hope it is!

This weeks show starts with Chunk's new look and let's just say, we have two celebrities on hand to help you work out who he looks like. Talk then turns to another device eaves dropping on one of the Bugles, Area 51 and the Bugles being described as "British as fuck!". There's also an exclusive opportunity to buy a *world famous piece of Don't Touch The Bugles podcast memorabilia from eBay! One of the Bugles shares a prank he was at the end of this week and there is also a debate on how much the tooth fairy should pay out. 

Then it's onto this weeks big topic which is Heroes and Idols. The guys each share theirs however this part of the podcast comes with a disclaimer as unbeknown to the Bugle loving boys, there seems to be a weird noise.....almost like an electrical current running through them? Either that or a ghost has taken over! Anyway, apologies in advance but it soon sorts itself out.

Finally, the guys wrap things up with another round of weird shit of the week.

Download and enjoy another hour of man-childish carnage brought to you this week by @chunkybugle, @teddypaling, @jiggsofbugle, @alexdiddly and @angelobugle.

This week @teddypaling brings you "The Three Amigos" podca…, wait, stop....we're lying, he's actually hosting episode 26 of Don't Touch The Bugles but there are only two other Bugles with him this week. Worry not listeners, it's still it's as entertaining as ever.

The guys start talking about what has been happening in the week since the last episode was recorded and talk soon turns to a family member taking a trip to casualty (the emergency part of the hospital, not the BBC drama!) for a broken bone. Naturally, this leads to them speaking of "serious" injuries they've encountered over the years and of course, more trips to the hospital.

There's a quick shout out for notable anniversary and birthdays before the guys move onto the main topic of the week which is "jobs at home or work that never get done if you don't do them". The Bugles had to be careful not to out their better halves so they included some of their own faults too!

Please do leave us a review on iTunes.....good, bad or ugly, the cast of Don't Touch The Bugles always love to hear what you think of the podcast.

Welcome to episode 24 of Don't Touch The Bugles, hosted by @angelobugle, everybody's second favourite Italian (at least according to @alexdiddly!)

The guys start with random chat about a friend of one of the Bugles who is about to hit his century, and we don't mean in cricket, and his salute from his friends. Talk then moves onto how somebody got a tattoo of pop sensation of old, Cher. Or did they? Oops!

To mix things up a bit this week, the Bugles start with Weird Shit of the Week which includes stories of a gimp suit offender, ghost anal sex, spying technology, an affair revenge and a Wild, Wild, Netflix recommendation.

This week's main topic is Worst Ever Impulse Purchases. As ever, we don't like to spoil the surprise so you need to do two things: 1) Download episode 24 of Don't Touch The Bugles and 2) follow @buglespodcast on Instagram to see photos of some of the purchases. Jesus - some of them are shameful!!!

Finally, the guys wrap up with a bit of 'Dear Bugles'......the podcast version of 'Dear Deirdre' whereby the Bugles give advice to real life problems and yes, they are weird and wonderful problems!

The guys kick things off with a round up of their week before Jiggs surprises everyone and takes them all on a trip down memory lane to episodes of old with a quiz. As with every quiz, there are points and what do points make? PRIZES! Well, in this particular quiz, you only get a prize for losing and if you get a prize for losing, you my as well change the word prize to forfeit!

Then it's onto this week's main topic which is 'lies your parents told you as a child'. As ever, we won't spoil the surprise but there are a lot of parents out there for have some confessions to make.

And of course, it wouldn't be an episode of Don't Touch The Bugles if we didn't have Weird Shit of the Week which this week includes tales of buying a mansion with your best friends, a new trick to avoid having to pay for excess baggage weight and nurses who eat a cake they really shouldn't have.

Teddy is in charge of proceedings this week as he welcomes you, every man on the planet and his dog, to episode 22 of Don't Touch The Bugles.

It's a three man podcast this week and the guys kick things off with a round up of their respective, and eventful weeks which include stories of a distinct lack of attendees to a prestigious sporting event, a Bugle who lost their shit and had a fight and another Bugle who had a fight to try and lose his'll make sense when you listen to it.

It's then onto this week's topic of choice - Near Death Experiences! The Bugles share their own close brush with the grim reaper which include stories involving a swimming pool elevator, a trip to the hospital, a lucky lay-by, 9 lives tattoos and making front page news for being creating a city gridlock.

The Bugles, guided by Teddy, then move onto Weird Shit of The Week, your regular update of crazy happenings around the globe. This week, stories are told involving football kits gone wrong and one that looks like a Burger King staff uniform, incorrectly being pronounced dead, a criminal toilet blocker and a name change with a body part/animal hybrid. Dear oh dear....

Teddy than has a surprise up his sleeve (metophically speaking of course, he had a t-shirt on because we finally have sun!) and introduces two games to the guys. First up, he plays the role of Matthew Kelly as they play 'Stars in their Eyes'.....or should that be 'Stars in their Mouths'?. He then takes inspiration from 80's children's TV presenter, Timmy Mallett and plays a bit of word association but with a difference.
