image for Reality TV Show for Space Rovers to be Filmed on Mars
The planet where the new reality TV show is to be filmed

BBC TV have announced that they will be launching a new reality TV programme called 'I'm a Space Rover, Get Me Off This Planet', to be shown on the BBC's all new Reality TV Channel.

It will feature 15 space rovers specially built for the programme. 'Poppit' and 'Greeble' are just some of the specially constructed modules.

For two weeks, the Space Rover contestants will be placed on Mars, and will have to complete tasks, such as creating a slide, then sliding down it.

Every night, the audience at home will vote for which rover they want to see go next.

The losing Rover will be flown back home on a rocket, taken to pieces, have all its components stuffed with old newspaper, and will then be flown back into space, and dropped into the Earth's atmosphere, where they will burn up instantly.

The winner will, likewise, be flown back, and likewise taken to pieces, likewise have all its dismantled components stuffed with old rubbish...

...and it will be locked up in a top secret NASA impenetrable safe where it will be forgotten about.

The BBC has also promised us a celebrity version, featuring such famous rovers as Spirit and Opportunity.

'I'm a Space Rover, Get Me Off This Planet' begins May of this year on 'BBC Reality Channel', at 6:45 PM. Plans for the celebrity special are starting at the estimated time of next year.
