The BBC has plunged into fresh controversy today at the unveiling of their summer TV schedule. Amongst the many middle class domestic based family sitcoms that are to be aired is also the new celebrity show 'Dancing On Rice'.
In the show the selected celebrities will have to perform their dancing routines whilst standing on Anneka Rice. An excited BBC executive said "this will have the nation gripped. As everyone knows Anneka has one of the most famous posteriors in Television and watching these celebrities trying to keep their balance on it whilst performing routines such as the Maccerana and Agadoo really is hilarious."
One of the celebrities appearing on the show, Bob Holness, likened the experience of dancing on Annekas backside as "like trying to ride a bucking bronco". Another participant, the extremely pointless Ray Quinn, stated that it was similar to "being on a living bouncy castle".
A number of pressure groups have raised concerns about the proposed show. A spokesman for the UN said that they were worried the show was exploiting a national treasure who is desperate to get back into the limelight. "This is the woman who gave us such great TV programmes as Treasure Hunt and Challenge Anneka for Heavens sake, to put her through something like this is degrading and inhuman. We only hope that President Obama lives up to his promise and steps in to stop this abuse immediately."
Miss Rice was unavailable for comment at the time of going to press.
