Sorry, @Dustydazzler for sending this thread sideways...

Next big celebrity tv show?
We’ve had celebrity singing, dancing, baking, diving and portrait painting... (and celebrity antiques buying.... why?)

Simon Cowells new show will be Celebrity Sparky!

Watch as a Loose Women presenter tangles with wiring a plug.... Be amazed at Joe Swash bending some 20mm conduit and someone from a 90’s boy band gets his fingers crushed by a downlight spring!

Our panel of judges include the old guy from DIY SOS that proclaims to be an electrician, Simon himself and one half of Jedward... for no apparent reason.

Every Saturday night from now until pantomime season (when all our competitors are booked elsewhere) on prime time ITV4 at 11pm.
Featuring guest appearances from expert electricians (from YouTube) and coached by the top dogs at the NICEIC, our celebrities will be given a 5 week crash course, hopefully coming out of it with new skills, new talents and a new career in the building trade.

I'm in.....but only if Harry Hill does the commentary,and ALL tool makers names,are on show ;)

I have a better idea....6 apprentices,all have to sit in one room,with their phones on a table...no matter what ringing and beeping...NO touching allowed...8 hours,winner gets the best massage they have ever had...and i'm giving it ;)

Think you could get arrested for doing that to an apprentice these days. Especially if your including the so-called “happy ending” :oops:

Many years ago there was a kind of trade talent show , I remember one episode where apprenticeship plumbers had to make a water feature using various pieces of copper pipes to create a big feature.
They would then hook it up to a hose and see it it worked correctly...

Don't worry, it won't get to that, most of them wouldn't last 20 minutes without their phone. No way would any of them reach 8 hours. Phones are like little life support machines for younger people!

Damn, that makes me sound like an old man...

I do remember watching that some of them were using different sizes of pipe and some were drilling holes in them left right and centre
