See if you can solve the tricky True Or False conundrum that accompanies each deal. Go on, it’s not rocket science.

THE DEAL: Roobarb And Custard Too: Vol.1 & 2 DVD's £2.99 each. Find out more about the Roobarb remakes and where you can get them here.

TRUE OR FALSE?  First developed on the back of a fag packet in the mid-1960s, the characters of Roobarb and Custard were originally based on the former Prime Minister Harold Macmillan and his Chancellor of the time, Reginald Maudling.

THE DEAL: The World At War: 30th anniversary 11 DVD Boxset - just £34.99 if you follow the link. Resistance is futile.

TRUE OR FALSE?  World War II never officially ended – it is still being fought on a low level in the Virgin Islands, kept alive as an attempt to break the world record for the longest ever war. At present, it is being fought between two retired maids, one from the Philippines, the other from Holland. They are each armed with socks filled with ping pong balls.

THE DEAL: Gillette Fusion Razor Blades. An 8-Pack for just £11.76 delivered – find out more here.

TRUE OR FALSE?  Before the advent of the safety razor, men would use anything sharp to remove their facial hair. This could have been anything from a carving knife to the rib of a piglet or the sharpened tip of a surfboard.
