TV show Big Brother last night announced a shockingly desperate attempt to win back viewers in its final ever series. A statement explained "We are proud to announce that a game of Russian roulette will be played on the final night of this years show to decide the winner".
It is understood that the remaining six house mates will contest the grand finale shoot-out. In a move likely to please human rights campaigners, producers have altered the traditional rules of the game thus permitting contestants to aim their weapon anywhere at their body they please.
Reaction to the news has been a mixture of shock and excitement.
BB 1 winner Craig Scouser admitted he was horrified at the cheap tactics. "eeeeee Its like human life like. F***in barbaric like".
Celebrity big brother winner Chantelle Wannabe analysed the event as "well out of order".
The show's presenter was much more optimistic telling fans that it was going to be "super duper exciting!!!"
This move is the latest in a series of decisions that prove producers are still looking for new ways to push the boundaries of acceptance on our screens. Next month sees the first episode of a new reality talent show "Get out of jail free" where real life inmates attempt to sing and dance their way to an early release from jail.
