  • There was a ridiculous but funny bit in Sleep Creepers, On Floor 3, Luke fell asleep when he was meant to be sabotaging the game which may have in fact lead to his detection (Maybe) and/or failure to sabotage the challenge.
  • This is the only and last time where Sleep Creepers was played in Series 3, as well as its last appearance to date. It's also the only time Sleep Creepers was played after Faith Brown took over the role as the Voice.
  • Luke is the only boy to be trapped in Sleep Creepers.
  • On Floor 6, Zoe briefly coughed just before she voted.
  • Ellie is the only female Saboteur in Septic Sewers. She is also the only Saboteur in Septic Sewers to escape the Tower.
  • In Sleep Creepers, the Saboteur had 5 seconds to get back under the duvet after setting an alarm instead of the usual 3 seconds. The rule change might have something to do with saboteur alert challenges in Series 2 and 3 giving the saboteur 5 seconds (or even 7 as with Camp Fear) to sabotage on each attempt whereas the 1st series challenges would be less lenient and only give 3, so the rule change was likely done to keep the time limits in those challenges consistent. 
  • This is the only episode where the team get no incorrect guesses in Green Fingers.
  • During the voting on Floor 4, Luke was holding the bulbs.
  • Near the end of Body Shock, Luke attempted to take the brain from one of the Botherers until The Voice informed him that without the brain, the body cannot be completed. This caused Luke to let the Botherer get away with the brain, causing the team to fail the challenge.
  • In Sleep Creepers, the middle bed (occupied by Ellie) was missing its front bedknobs. This was likely due to Molly breaking the knobs off accidentally in Series 1, Episode 10 (Newcastle).
  • The Caretaker reveals in this episode that Fluffy needs to be fed at least every 12 minutes and that his favorite foods are fish and fingers (or more specifically children's fingers).
  • Ellie is the only saboteur in this episode who didn’t fail to sabotage a challenge. Chloe failed to sabotage Green Fingers on Floor 4, while Luke failed to sabotage Sleep Creepers on Floor 3, getting detected in both instances. However, Luke did successfully sabotage Body Shock on Floor 6.
  • Chloe and Ellie wear their hair down in the cage sequence. They wear their hair up in the challenges.
