Briefing: Good grief, could celebs be more Z-list than this?
Sunday 11 November 2007
Winter is here, the nights are drawing in, and as if that were not depressing enough the annual parade of the Z-list is on its way. 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!', the most inappropriately-named TV programme since a group of people on ITV claimed that they were out looking for "the X Factor", begins tomorrow with an all-loser line-up.
Some people claim to be disappointed after rumours of a slightly starrier cast failed to come true, as they do every year. It's a case of You Want: Paris Hilton; You'd Take: Delia Smith; You'll Get: Anna Ryder Richardson from 'Changing Rooms'. But who is the most entertaining? Delia would turn the basic rations into a nutritious and evenly-toasted meal, which would be tedious. Paris would hardly baulk at putting a witchetty grub in her mouth.
This year's show promises a typical line-up, with a boy band member, a surgically-enhanced hottie, a slightly scary older woman and jaded former controversialist. Just add kangaroo testicles for the show of the year.
