Scarborians, have you noticed posters popping up all along the South Bay? It implies lots of businesses are showing the last episode of Scarborough - but not all have TVs. Strange....."

It was followed by another tweet, accompanied by an image of barriers, stating: "Watch it here... But where?? And what are those barriers for?"

It was later revealed that, in celebration of the final episode, Derren and "special guests" will be heading to Sandside for a "party".
