It's embarrassing. It's public humiliation. It shouldn't be allowed. And that's just how we feel about admitting to watching it. It took us less time than ever to get completely hooked on Britain's Got Talent this year, and while we're not proud, we are entertained.
Obviously it's a bit difficult to decline your best mate's birthday night out because you're "staying in to watch a Geordie that can burp the theme tune to the Poddington Peas", so we've created a drinking game. Invite one other person (or more) and suddenly you "already agreed to go to a party". You'll never have to go out on a Saturday night again.
The rules are very simple. Fill a pint glass with the booze of your choice (weak please - just because we play it with wine doesn't mean you should) and drink thus:
One shot and a toast to the screen
if there's a standing ovation.
if David Walliams insults Simon Cowell.
if Alesha looks bored.
if Ant and Dec go on stage during an act.
if an act verbally abuses the judges and/or storms off.
for each of the following:
- Belly Dancers
- Men in Drag (not including Simon Cowell)
- Any animal that refuses to perform
- Somersault fail
if an act is seriously deluded about their level of talent.
if an act has been on the show previously.One shot
if Amanda Holden bothers to turn up for work at all.
And there you have it. How to make TV gold even better. You're welcome.
