Just found this

I'm a Celeriac , Get me Out of Here .

Monty Don , Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall (Dressed up as Cauliflower related foodstuffs ) , An Organic Veg Box and a clutch of reality / little known soap stars are abandoned in an allotment. They have to perform tasks eg pricking out , trimming beans and double digging . The public has to vote for the genuine vegetable & the winner is blanched and served up with a teriyaki sauce before being offered a part (as a finger puppet ) in the reality programme "Made in Etsy"


OK I know it has been done but my version is - Strap two crossword addicts into a rocket on a launch pad (with austronaut suits and big gloves . ) Give them one of those space tiny rollerball pens and papers floating round in zero gravity. They have to solve a 24 letter anagram before the 10 , 9 . 8 take off sequence / Otherwise shot into space and the algorithms for getting them back they have to work out from a number piped into the capsule

Monkey Tennis

Alan Partridge said it first but I'd vote for it

Im not as funny as you ladies but they will never make anything where you get a woman above a size 14 playing a romantic lead.

How about Cherry does PND, after all of her (who the fuck is she?) random documentaries about childbirth and hair removal, we find her rocking in a corner, and agonising over choice of anti-depressants.

That other one, Dawn Porter, she did a Lesbian thing and a "I will starve myself for a laugh thing" surely she would be up for a "Dawn does Heroin" or a "Dawn is incontinent" laugh fest.
