Yet another show in which wannabes battle for “a once in a lifetime opportunity”. This time the prize is a reporting job on a glossy magazine. There’s the usual wacky bunch of contestants, who make up in attitude what they lack in experience. They’re working at a saucy women’s magazine and are sent out to join hordes of baying paparazzi at a red carpet do.
Former glamour model Hayley is in her element but the novelty soon fades for plummy posh-boy Felix who keeps muddling his questions, while another of the budding journalists doesn’t have a clue who these so-called celebrities are. Glamorous it certainly isn’t.
