BBC TV ANNOUNCED today that it had given the green light to a new reality TV programme, to rival the heady heights of Channels 3's "I'm a Brother, Get Me Out Of Here," and Channel 4's "Big Celebrity."
The boss of the BBC refused to comment on this, insisting that it was "a closely guarded secret," but cameraman Billy Socks revealed all, shortly before being sacked and beaten to death by Anne Robinson.
He revealed the shocking news that it was to feature animals instead of people! The show is to be called "Animal Farm" and is to feature a range of normal, everyday animals from across the country. A celebrity version is also in the pipeline, featuring stars like Babe the Sheep-Pig, Pingu, and Lassie.
Viewers will be able to see the highlights of the day in a prime-time program on BBC1, hosted by Bruce Forsyth and Jeremy Clarkson, and watch it 24 hours a day on one of the BBC's many obscure and unwatched digital channels.
As usual, the public will vote our their least favourite animal each day, and the animals will have a series of tasks to perform to win food, including jumping through hoops and navigating a maze.
You can catch the new show on the 13th March, at 8:00PM, on BBC1.
