Family Misfortunes – More TV Phone In Scandal

According to the , staff on Kaye’s hideously naff ‘retro’ and ‘ironic’ Saturday Gameshow Marathon failed to count around 10,000 text entries in a competition with prizes worth £25,000.

Those 10,000 viewers, who texted the correct answer to the question “In which gameshow would you hear the phrase ‘Our survey says?’ (it’s Family Fortunes, by the way) didn’t receive a confirmation text until after the deadline.

ITV have since apologised and is now planning to stage another draw for the people affected, a move which will apparently cost the broadcaster and additional £25,000.

Come back Les Dennis, all is forgiven.
