My new favourite dating show is a crash course in car crash television. It is Channel 5’s latest offering; Make Or Break. This show is so bad, that is actually amazing. It was clearly devised so quickly to fill the cavernous cavity left by Love Island; a show I feel blessed to have missed.
The producers at Channel 5 must have sent out a brief that was something like the following; ARE YOU DATING SOMEONE WHO EMOTIONALLY ABUSES YOU CONSTANTLY? IF SO, WE’LL BUY YOU A FREE HOLIDAY TO MEXICO SO WE CAN HUMILIATE YOU.
It’s full of the same fame hungry people that just want to boost their Twitter followers. There’s the typical fare of regional accents; Essex, Geordies and the like, plus some token posh people. Two people, who are clearly the laughing stock of their professions, which includes sex therapy and behavioural psychology. I’ve forgotten their names.
It’s the type of colour coded couple show that makes you happy to be single, or if you’re loved up, it makes you so grateful that you’re not dating such a big twat as these people. Because one of the many dating rules I subscribe to is never dating someone who has appeared on Channel 5.
