Brain Swap: Celebrity Special grabs huge Easter ratings.

New Dr Who: Adventures in doing time and space

It was the surprise ratings grabber of the Easter bank holiday weekend, even seeing off ferocious competition from the BBC’s rejuvenation of its classic Doctor Who character, now portrayed by former BBC One VJ Jonathan King and his trusted teenage boy sidekick.

Brain Swap: Celebrity Special is ITV’s spin on it’s own phenomenally popular reality TV show/ prank show, in which TV presenter Carol Smillie has her brain swapped with a member of the public and proceeds to trick their family into thinking nothing has changed.

The hilarious conclusion to the last series, aired in November 2004, saw Smillie ‘swappee’ Jan Shedling sectioned at the behest of her husband who feared that his wife was suffering from bipolar disorder.

It eventually took the series production company ‘Savaged Pensioner’, and a team of lawyers a month to have the decision reversed and Smillie and Shedling returned to their own heads.

Saturdays Celebrity Special featured both Charlie Dimmock and Kate Moss as the willing Celeb swaps. Viewers watched stunned as Smillie, former Miss Highlands refused to have her brain swapped back with Kate Moss.


However the highlight of the show was without doubt the scene of Smillie’s husband, TV presenter Eamonn Holmes complaining after sampling both Dimmock and Moss that sex with Moss was, “like shagging a self-obsessed bone bag, mind you it’s a good mush to look at when you pop.” Before adding, “then again, sex with Dimmock is like humping a navvy with saggy bitch tits”.


Holmes did go on to admit that having Dimmock brained Smillie around the garden was terrific, unlike Moss brained Smillie who did nothing but, “smoke, eat and moan all the bloody time”.


Following the success of the Easter Special, ITV have already commissioned six week run. The tabloid press are today full of claims that celebrities are queuing up to appear in the new series.

I take it you know Johnathan King is 'out' now. Careful, he could come looking for you. He likes pretty boys!

Hope he's not allowed to come back to Panto. I'd thought we's seen the last of him!

Oh no you haven't!
Oh yes you have!

No such fucking luck!

Just watch your back, he could be lurking in the shadows, or even worse, backstage...waiting to surprise us with some more, mindless bullshit.

Hey, that's not really a surprise is it?

What? you think the fact that king was released just a DAY before Eccleston quit as the Dr was a coincidence?

Come on!

You'll see - he'll be the best Dr yet, with his great new catch phrase,

"Just a bit of fun, don't tell your mum".
