image for Television moves onto the sixth clone of Josh Widdicombe
Donald Trump's 17th clone, seen yesterday.

It has been revealed that the world of television has moved on to its sixth clone of Josh Widdicombe. In related news, there have been 501 Piers Morgans, nine Kathryn Ryans and twelve Sara Pascoes.

A television spokesman said 'These celebrities only have a limited shelf life, so, to keep their image going, with the amount of work and projects they have, they need clones.

'They are created and stored in a lab in Basingstoke. Sometimes, the clones go wrong, that was how both James Acaster and Ed Sheeran were created.

'We always feel that Piers Morgan should be retired, but a lot of people watch him, so what can we do?'

Jimmy Carr has been replaced five times, Benedict Cumberbatch 18, and that chap who is in everything, but has a name you can't remember, that is the fourth one of him.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
