Continuity mistake: In the Daffyd sketch, Daffyd has two nipple piercings. As those other gay men come through the door and he pushes them back, his right nipple ring has moved up his body - obviously a clip on. It stays there for a few moments, until the next shot where it's back on his nipple, with no time to put it back on. (00:10:05)

Season 2 Episode 1 - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: In the sketch with the Prime Minister, when Sebastian brings over the chocolate fingers, a shot before he brings them over there is nothing on the table.

Season 1 Episode 4 - S1-E4

Deliberate mistake: In the scene where Peter Andre and his producer watch the footage of the royal family, in the background you can see princess Diana and the queen mother who had both unfortunately passed away before Little Britain was made. They had to use the old footage but it is still a mistake.

Show generally

Plot hole: In "Little Britain Abroad", Marjorie swaps places with another Fat Fighter from somewhere called "Rocksprings" in America. In the first episode, when Marjorie is pushed into a police car by the sheriff, it says "Miami Dade". However, in the second episode, the American Fat Fighter, Blanche, says that she is from Rocksprings, Texas, not Miami.
