More lazy productions

March 5, 2008

mrmrs.jpgNews reaches Badger Towers that Mr & Mrs is set for a remake 35 years after originally screened. Hosted by TV’s perfect image of a happy couple, Phil and Fern (I bet Richard and Judy are fuming) the new version sees celebrity couples answer questions on each other.

Can you tell I’m simply bursting with fruit flavour?

“[Viewers will] also get an insight into their home life as All Star Mr & Mrs takes a trip around each of the couples homes.” No. Please. Stop. Stop the excitement I can’t take it.

And which A-list couples are due to make an appearance? Brad ‘n’ Ange? Michael ‘n’ Catherine? Er… Anthony Head and partner Sarah; Christopher Biggins and partner Neil; Kerry Katona and husband Mark Croft; Vic Reeves and Nancy Sorrell; Lembit Opik and Cheeky Girl Gabriela Irimia; Laurence and Jackie Llewelyn Bowen; and Vicky Entwistle and partner Andy Chapman.

Aside from the fact that most of the ‘contestants’ aren’t even a Mr or a Mrs (but hey, who am I to argue semantics in this day and age), do we forget how terrible the format seemed in the 90s with Julian Clary? It was a total flop (insert Clary-style raised eyebrow here). This is going to be even worse.

Instead of ‘normal’ everyday couples who clearly love each other, we’ll be forced to trail the revolting Katona and her fame-hungry ‘husband’ as they show us around their gaudy estate; watch as creepy MP Opik paws over his anorexic, man-in-drag lover; gag as the floppy-haired Llewelyn Bowens try to cover up the fact that Mrs LB has a MASSIVE BEARD ON HER FACE all the while wondering who Entwhistle is.

BMTV’s ironic trivia of the week…
The show’s original theme tune had the lyrics: “Mr and Mrs, Be nice to each other, Mr and Mrs, We’ve got to love one another.” Lyricists Tony Hatch and Jackie Trent divorced soon after writing the song.
