image for Hit TV game show "Is this your paperclip?" to be replaced
Rejected Sheep, yesterday.

Following the demise of 'Is this your Sheep?' the BBC has revealed that a similar game show is also on its last legs.

'Is this your Paperclip?' which is currently hosted by Dermot O'Leary will not have its contract renewed. The programme has been losing viewers at a steady rate, with more than 14 million tuning into the first episode. Now, it only has one viewer, Ms Hope Neville, who works on the show, and tunes in to see her name on the credits.

Ms Neville tells us: 'I am a big fan of the TV, and always wanted to work there, so it is always a thrill to see my name on the credits. My parents were also big fans of the TV, they named me after a character in Auf Weidersen Pet, so I always liked TV. I have the credits on a loop. It is on my Mobile Phone, I show it to complete strangers. I have spent a few rough nights in Police Cells, but one time, 14 million people watched what I do'

Ms Neville's job was to look after the stock of Paperclips. The game never changed. Paperclips always look the same, and if the contestant chose one that looked different, then they were disqualified.

Mr Scapegoat from the BBC said: 'We are always trying to push back the boundaries of what is acceptable. It would appear that this show wasn't suitable for a wide ranging audience. We can only apologise. It won't happen again, at least until the next time'.

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