Nice to see this reality TV show was recognised at the BAFTA awards at the weekend since it`s probably the most watchable programme of its kind
The premise is very simple: Get two totally ill matched couples and swap one of the spouses round for a week , light the blue torch paper and hope no one gets murdered by the last day
I almost felt sorry for some of the people featured , in fact I would have if someone had stuck a gun to their heads but no one did and all the people featured volunteered to go on the show . One of the couples were a childless black couple with the female swapping with a white woman whose teenage children were racist . How do I know they were racist ? The fact that they kept calling their guest " A f***ing black b*tch " made me jump to that conclusion . An edition featuring a hard working middle class woman swapping places with a woman with seven kids who had never worked a day in her life led to a national debate about weather people on long term benefits should be allowed to have kids while there was a couple of more light hearted editions where a wife who doesn`t drink swapped with a woman who runs a pub meaning the husband was allowed a certain drinking allocation and who wasn`t allowed to watch television while having his dinner , with another episode featuring a regular kind of family man swapping with a spaced out Welsh hippy whose girlfriend was into astral plains and who didn`t believe her dogs benefited from housework ( ! )
I can`t really do the show justice by talking about it here . If you get the chance too see WIFE SWAP watch it , even if you hate the whole reality TV fad
