The strength of Eurotrash isn't in its showcase of weirdness, tackiness and porno happenings within Europe, but in the English regional accents dubbed on to the subjects of its short films - many provided by talented voice artist Kate Robbins. There's something very funny indeed about hearing a Yorkshire accent coming from a voluptuous Danish blonde who clearly thinks she's being featured seriously. Has she ever seen the show? It mercilessly sends up whatever it features (while giving it lots of screen time, of course).
In the first four years, Antoine de Caunes and Jean-Paul Gaultier presented together. Their dual approach and the la-la tune proved a winning combination and the show quickly became a staple of late night UK telly and an unmissable weekly event.
Guests such as the odd Mr Penguin (an old bloke who dressed as a penguin) and the ill-fated Lolo Ferrari (she of the enormous boobs) added to the odd feel of the show. After the departure of Gaultier I felt the programme began to sag, although de Caunes has continued to soldier on with the same old blend of cover girls, Eurovision failures, and transvestites that were always the staple of 'Eurotrash'.
