As the Bedroom Tax takes grip on over 660,000 victims, the BBC has reacted by changing the name of their flagship show. Couples, and single people from around the UK will be invited to appear on the show, in an attempt to "create a series that viewers can finally relate to". Prospective buyers will be seen 'downsizing' to 'ordinary flats and houses'.
The series, has already begun filming with new host Kate Garraway at the helm. Since losing her job at Daybreak, Kate commented on her role on the re-vamped show. "The producers felt they wanted an ordinary face viewers could relate to, being a busy working mum, I was perfect for the role".
Three episode have already been filmed, with producers apparently 'happy' with the results. Viewers will soon be able to see couples and single homeowners checking out pissed stained mattresses, fungi in coffee cups, a neighbour jacking heroin in a stairwell and one wheelchair using participant offered a fourth floor bedsit in Crawley.
A BBC insider commented, "The show isn't directly connected to the Welfare Reform Act, but viewers will see ordinary working class families struggling to downsize from their West London apartments". "Kate Garraway herself can relate to the problem, and can be seen in one episode considering a move to a shared rastafarian household, and listening to loud dub-reggae music".
The move by the BBC comes after a spate of complaints, claiming the BBC has 'become out of touch'. Other revamps in the pipeline include 'Homes Under the Hammer' being re-named "Rich F****** C**** Get Even Richer".
