Channel 4 have denied rumours that an upcoming documentary about the death of Princess Diana in a car crash ten years ago will be anything but voyeuristic.
A spokeswoman for the channel told The Spoof that the British public deserved the chance to see what many viewers around the world had already seen.
"She was our princess, yet few of us have had a good look at the crash scene. The Americans have seen much more than us. The French too. And the Italians, not to mention the Spanish. But she wasn't their princess, she was ours. I think we need to reclaim her. This programme will help us do just that. It will be dignified. It will be responsible."
The channel's head of light entertainment insisted: "This will be a ratings winner. There are a lot of sick viewers out there who will be hoping to see the mangled victims. Whether they will or not depends on how the viewers vote."
She went on to say that none of the victims would be identified unless the majority of viewers chose the the "I want to see the bodies" option in the accompanying phone vote.
Shadow culture secretary Huge Swine called Channel 4 bosses, "Sick in the head."
