What X Factor and I’m A Celebrity really needed were villains. People to divide opinion and create column inches and radio topics.
Unfortunately this year’s contestants, however fun or talented, have been rather bland.
I’ve missed throwing things at the telly when Jedward were on, or laughing out loud at the awful Wagner or Chico.
And apart from Matthew Wright, no-one threw any major tantrums or caused major rumbles in the jungle.
So I’ve written to ITV with my 2014 wish list – Anne Robinson, Amy Childs, Fiona Phillips, Davina McCall, Louie Spence, Peaches Geldof, Jodie Marsh and Frankie Boyle. I’m feeling majorly irritated already!
