image for 'Have you seen my career?' Wins Ratings War
An old TV.................

Gillian McKeith, Keith Duffy, Dane Bowers, Lofty from Eastenders, Adrian Chiles, and Lorraine Chase are the latest high profile celebrities to feature in the rating busting show "Have you seen my career?".

Playing like a mixture of Win, Lose or Draw, Call My Bluff, and the much missed shows Is this your Paper-clip? and Is this your Sheep?, the show attracted 23 million viewers during its first five minutes.

A song sung by Dane Bowers, which featured a non-auto-tuned Katie 'Jordan' Price and a record breaking 14 separate fainting fits from McKeith during the shows first three minutes meant that the viewing figures soon fell to 5 million.

Adrian Chiles' contribution consisted of glowering, scowling, flatulence, and whinging, while Lorraine Chase spoke about playing Aunt Sally in Worzil Gummidge. The show, and its bank busting prize of £5 went to Keith Duffy, who had the highest number of votes from the audience.

Simon Cowell is said to be interested in the format for the programme, and has offered more than £100 for first American rights. American stars Tiffany, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, and an extra from Beverly Hills 90210 (the first time series) are said to be interested in appearing in the first episode.

Make Ben Macnair's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
