The scourge of ‘reality’ TV seems to be alive and well in 2016.
We had CBB drag on and fucking on for weeks, as a bunch of pseudo celebrities none of us give a flying fuck about divided their time between screwing or talking about Premier League footballers they’ve had sex with. *Sigh*.
We celebrated it’s climax and the opportunity for some rest-bite from piss poor telly, but ITV have come and ruined it all with the introduction of their latest I’m A Celebrity series.
And guess what? The shows bosses are hoping that it will be the sexiest series yet (oh joy). In a desperate bid for ratings they have even built a secret cave next to the jungle shower, to encourage its contestants to get hot and steamy.
Apparently once they’re inside, the ‘celebrities’ have total privacy from other contestants- but not from the millions watching at home of course.
Speaking to The Mirror, producer Oli Nash said:
Quite obviously this is the shower. Next door is a secret cave which will be hidden behind a locked door. It will be used a number of times through out the series for our celebrities. Inside it is just a plain cave with a bench but we will be using it through out the series for various events. The floors a bit hard – but it can be used for romance.
But it seems the makers of the show haven’t really thought it all through as the only two singletons in the jungle will be Carol Vorderman and Joel Dommett who have already said they’re not looking for romance.
Though to be fair as we learnt from CBB, having an S.O. hasn’t exactly stopped people before so who knows what could happen.
A source added:
The celebrities won’t know it is there and some of them will be sent into the cave when they least expect it. Some of them may be put together and others may have to do trials on their own. It is going to make for brilliant TV.
C’mon now, I wouldn’t go that far. Planet Earth II is brilliant TV, this isn’t even in the same league.
