Only fools in hearses
Reality based. Interactive elements.
John Challis presents two teams of celebrities competing to arrange a funeral. The arrangements take place over four days with a viewer phone vote on the fourth day (premium rate numbers) and the funeral held on day 5 (this is not ripped off from that Jenny Bond programme with the chefs, honest). The teams are headed by Nicky Campbell and Lowri Turner. They put in place various necessary funereal elements, choose the venue, the service, place the obituary, and have to drive the hearse and arrange the burial or cremation. This can involve celebrities behind the scenes gravedigging or at the crematorium.
An opportunity for the general public to see the fun side of undertaking, and the caring side of unsympathetic celebrities.
Proposal for involvement in pilot episodes: Larry David (to arrange the obituary naturally); Jane “Cruise singer” McDonald; Leslie Grantham; and
