He said: “But I’m not going to suck the blood out of you like Peter just did.”

Despite the dig Peter then responded, and said: “That’s a really good offer.”

“And a lovely first offer. You shouldn’t take it, but it’s great.”

Fans decided that Steven – who came in with an air of fairness – got their seal of approval.
