The British Broadcasting Authority, that bastion of all things British and upright, is introducing pro celebrity wrestling into it's Summer schedule.

BBC 1 will screen matches featuring celebrities fighting professional wrestlers from the 1970s and 1980s. The first bouts have already been arranged.

Alan Titchmarsh is due to square up against Kendo Nagasaki followed by Noel Edmonds grappling with Mick McManus, who though in his 80's is still a fighter of note, McManus not Edmonds.

Other celebrities are hoping to fight, with the shows being filmed at Plymouth's Barbican Centre. Newsreader John Craven and local Television personality and comedian Jethro, who is very funny indeed, are said to be interested in fighting also.

It is expected that old ladies will sit around the ring cheering on their respective heroes and booing the villains.

It is expected to be quite a hoot and I for one would watch such of show, of note.

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