Royal Wedding Car-Crasher TV
We’re slap bang in the middle of the most-hyped royal wedding of our lifetime, and broadcasters have gone mental with programming leading up to the big day. But last night really took the biscuit; Channel 4′s The Royal Wedding Crashers was the most tenuous, pointless wedding-related programme I’ve ever seen. Hopefully, it can only get better from here.
The programme featured Z-list celebrities, like Mario from Big Brother and Andrew Stone from Pineapple Dance Studios, trying to impress various wedding officials so they could earn an invite to the wedding. Fay from Steps vowed to donate blood – should a royal be injured on the day, Vanilla Ice dressed up like a choc ice (I’m serious), Jodie Marsh was a bumble bee. I presume the whole thing was a set-up. If it wasn’t, then these celebs are more gullible than I thought, but something tells me they knew exactly what they were doing. That said, the sight of the Cheeky Girls crouched down and flapping like chickens, and Big Brother’s Craig Phillips giving Al Qaeda a stern warning was enough to make me cringe with horror. Channel 4 really does some oddball comedy sometimes.
The ridiculous programme thankfully only lasted half an hour and I’m amazed I watched the whole thing considering how truly awful it was. Here’s hoping TV gets better from now until Friday! For all things wedding-related, take a look at our dedicated Royal Wedding page.
