Puzzle for you... what does the Vauxhall Vivaro, Sky Television, and the Simpsons TV series have in common? Any ideas? The short answer is Northern Ireland - the long answer is too distressing to publish before the watershed. Let us focus on the short answer. Seventy versatile Vivaros have been supplied to Sierra Support to form a two- million pound fleet. These will travel the country – sporting Simpsons stickers - as part of Sky's installation and service team. In fact, estimates suggest that over the next three years everyone in Northern Ireland will see one of these vehicles every four to six weeks.

Jim Humphreys, of Fleet Financials, said: “The strong support - all the way from the factory to the dealer - was key to us winning the deal and supplying these vehicles. The Vivaro is rightly recognised as a national fleet vehicle, and because we’ve worked with the Vauxhall brand for the last 15 years, this gave us the absolute faith in the vehicles’ abilities.”

That sounds fair enough. The Vauxhall Vivaro is a capable machine, after all, and every member of the fleet is powered by economical yet potent 2.0-litre 115bhp engines. The vans are fitted with shelves and roof racks too, making them even more versatile. But why - why for the love of load-luggers everywhere cover them with Simpsons stickers? Yes, it is 'okay' entertainment for kids – but enough is enough. It feels like it has been broadcast everyday of my life. There must be something better to watch on Sky. Formula 1, perhaps.
