FAKING FAKING

You might need a moment or two to breathe deeply to get over the horror of yet another celebrity reversioning of a reality TV format, but there is something quite enticing about the plans for Celebrity Faking It. Four former Blue Peter presenters (at the moment it seems only Peter Duncan has been announced) are going to try and pass themselves off as an Abba tribute band. There is a flaw in the concept here: how, exactly, does one convince anybody that you are a genuine tribute band; it's like being a genuine forgery, surely? But we do hope this means we get to see Janet Ellis in a white jumpsuit.
