There is a scene on a bus where Bert is "receiving unwanted attention" from a woman. Unable to take it any more he stands up and shouts, "Are we at Ilkeston yet?" This is a reference to Robert Lindsay's home town in Derbyshire in the United Kingdom. The role of Bert Rigby was written for him, and the character's background mirrored his own. Originally he wanted a portion of the movie to be filmed in Ilkeston, but the producers thought Ilkeston no longer looked "industrial enough" to match the character's background. So the bus scene is the only bit of Ilkeston that made it to the final product.
