who's ligging who?
12 March 2019 | by gilleliathSee all my reviews

CGD was outed last night (though it might seem a strange word for a show that is already as 'out' as it gets) - two men were on a date, and the supposed celeb (a club rep from Bolton lucky enough to have been picked up by the cameras) was very excited to hear that his date, a self-styled singer and rapper who actually makes his living working at the Co-op, was planning a music video: 'this could tek me t' the next level!' The celeb is hoping that his date, who is obviously only there for the (oo-er!) exposure and gambling that getting a Z-list celeb in his video will make his name, can make *him* famous! Who's ligging who?

In short, far from being about finding The One (something for which most of them seem totally unprepared and unequipped), like most 'Celebrity' this or that this is really a show in which minor reality TV bods hope for a slingshot effect that will make them genuinely famous - too dopey to realise that they're being laughed at not with, and that such low-rent, exhibitionist fare only confirms them in their League Two status. For that matter, beyond fame they don't have an idea of any sort in their heads. I'm not talking quantum mechanics; from thinking you have to get to Wales by sea to not knowing what a Balti is, you name it, they know nothing whatsoever about it.

All of which is entertaining enough, and the new hosts (sorry, dating agents) have slotted in fine (certainly the new woman is less annoying than Duchess Nadia). I've particularly enjoyed watching the progress of Chelsee Healy (sp?), last seen in the mainstream on Come Dancing With Me nearly 10 years ago. Like most of them she has very clear and totally unrealistic ideas about what she wants in a partner, vastly overrating the power of her fame to compensate for what is otherwise an almost total lack of anything to offer. For the first few shows her distaste at not being offered a hot billionaire was written all over her face. Someone obviously sat her or her management down, though, and told her she was going to do herself more harm than good. Result? The constant RBF has been replaced by wreaths of smiles. Aww!!

They do need to do something, though, about Tom the receptionist. His excruciating camp innuendoes and constant attempts to impress by using long words which he doesn't really understand himself are really irritating. I'm free!!
