For Pete's sake
NEW! Pete's PA, Living, 10.00pm
Hmmm. We were wondering precisely what Living TV were going to do to fill all those holes in their schedules that were caused by the Great Anti-Racism Jade Goody Embargo of 2007 (out of curiosity, is that still running? We assume so, but we haven't really been checking lately), and the answer would appear to be thus: they're going to reuse the formats and get someone else to front them. That is assuming that we're not being simplistic in assuming that Pete's PA will essentially be a new series of Jade's PA, only with Pete Burns instead of Jade Goody. We were kind of hoping for Naomi Campbell to be the replacement host, because that shit would've been unmissable, but this will do.
There was talk following Pete's appearance on Celebrity Wife Swap that perhaps he wasn't as confrontational as people expected, and that it rather ruined the fun of the format for people to essentially, minor disagreements notwithstanding, get on fairly well and have a bit of a giggle. With any luck, Pete will be significantly more unreasonable in this, even if it's only pantomimed for the cameras. Because we suspect that a show where competent PAs sit a few tests for a standard PA job without being regularly berated by the potential boss would not ultimately be compelling television.
So the obligatory first-episode footage involves Pete sifting through the various obsessive fans and camera whores and attempting to find someone who might actually be able to do the job properly (not that it really matters whether we believe the winner will go on to be his PA or not; we're assuming that most of us will stop caring the minute the cameras stop rolling, assuming we ever started caring in the first place, which remains to be seen), eventually selecting ten finalists. Seeing him delivering a few verbal putdowns to the more hopeless efforts should be worth tuning in for, we should think.
