image for Pope Idol
Simon Fuller and Friends

Simon Fuller annouched today that he would do a religious Pop Idol. Pope Idol should hit UK screens later this year dubbed the "holy man's Pop Idol".

Pope Idol will see budding Priests, Bishops, Deacons, Monks and any other eager religious "nuts" battling it out to win the ultimate Bible-Bashers prize, along with the Divine Glory of being a nun's number one pin up.

With the church hit by recent scandal, this could not come at a better time to revive the fortunes of the papacy .

Judges have yet to be confirmed but certain religious figures have thrown their hat in the ring including the current Pope John Paul II, Father Jack Haggett of Craggy Island and that fat bird from the Terry's Chocolate Orange ads.

Fuller said: "What were looking for is the ultimate catholic. You know the ones who really hate Protestants. The ones who don't eat meat on a Friday. The ones that think every time they have that piece of smooth well cut bread you're eating into Christ's ample belly."

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