Men In Tights

by | 21st, October 2003

‘FOLLOWING on from our observation on TV’s latest ruse – making identical programmes but calling them by different names – tonight we present an episode of Faking It, in which eight shipyard workers get to train with the English National Ballet.

‘Anyone want to swap?’

Except it is not called Faking It because that was a Channel 4 programme – it is called Men In Tights and is on ITV tonight at 9.45. Billy Elliot, eat your heart out.

If you’re a fan of these Trading Places programmes, then tonight is a bumper night with Wife Swap on Channel 4 at 9pm.

Tonight sees Victorian mum Judith swap her clean and efficient household in Leyland for the Stevenage home of Belinda, a woman who doesn’t believe in disciplining her children, letting them eat what they want and go to bed when they want.

Needless to say, the experiment ends in tears with Judith unable to cope with Belinda’s children, Judith’s husband unable to cope with Belinda and the viewers unable to cope with any of the above.

Wife-swapping was never less fun.’
