Fake game show

After the unmerited success of The Underdog Show where “celebrities” (like heroff the news, that bloke that sings; him that had a chat show and used to present whatdoyoucallit on Channel 4; heroff Press Gang; and heroff the news that was on Channel 5 last year complaining about the poor quality of British television) train dogs and their survival is determined by a phone in vote from the audience at home, and the MTV hit “Pimp my Car” the Beeb decided to cash in on both with a hybrid “Pimp my stallion” where celebrities are given a stallion and asked to tout it for business around racing yards and stud farms across the country.  The celebrities: Rebecca Loos; James Hewitt; Carol Thatcher; Carol Vorderman; Nicky Campbell; one of the Three Degrees; someone form The Spinners; and the lead Wurzel are accompanied on their travels by Justin Lee Collins – who is filming “Bring back Pimp my stallion” for Channel 4 at the same time as the original recording.

    Blimey, that lot don’t even count as B list celebrities . . .

    • The Underdog Show had escaped my notice until last night where I sat bemused as someone called Richard Curtis (presumably not the Comic Relief afficionado) did a dance routine with a couple of dogs to the tune from Mission Impossible. It was somewhat bizarre.
