Meanwhile, back to "reality"...

While channel hopping on Friday evening, I stumbled across Channel 5’s The Bachelor (honestly, it wasn’t intended – but once I’d landed there it was only fair to give it a chance).

For the uninitiated, The Bachelor is a programme in which a bunch of women are prepared to endure ritual humiliation at the hands of our favourite tangerine, the artist formerly known as Gavin Church, as each one attempts to launch a new career as a D-list celebrity win his heart.

I’d obviously missed a few episodes as the initial group of 25 had already been whittled down to 12 and Gavin lost no time in jettisoning another in Friday’s episode.

“It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do,” mumbled Gavin, as usual looking and sounding as if he’d been heavily sedated. His ex-wife must be delighted.

“I opened my heart but I have no idea what he is thinking” sobbed the unfortunate young lady.

Thinking? I guess there’s a first time for everything...

Truth is, indeed, stranger than fiction.

Is there a different program with Charlotte Church with a bunch of bachelors?

Love the post. There are planks of wood with more personality than henson. I guess we ll call it a win for the rugby world as he has taken his egotistical business elsewhere. Shame he was such a waste of talent....
