Chantelle's Dream Dates

Following-on from e4's 'Living The Dream', which followed the progress of overnight celebrity Chantelle Houghton after she left the Big Brother House, the dizzy Essex girl has been given her own show proper. Oh my God!

Chantelle's Dream Dates is essentially a re-hash of Davina McCall's old late-night dating show Streetmate, however the format has been re-jigged to include some new twists this time around.

First, the bubbly blonde host will scour the streets of Britain to find a girl who's desperate for a date and prepared to admit it. So far, not dissimilar to Davina's offering.

Next, however, Chantelle will convince the hapless candidate that she needs a makeover. Then, in something of a 'kick her when she's down' manoeuvre, three potential dates will be shown a VT of the girl, pre-makeover, pleading for a date.

Gee thanks Chantelle, you sure know how to make a 'gal feel good about herself. Not!

To be honest, we're not sure if the show's going to work, mainly because it doesn't appear to have been thought-through all that well.

I mean, what girl in their right mind would attempt to pull a hunk by going-out looking their worst, in the hope that their would-be beau will be wowed by some kind of Cinderella-style transformation?

Still it could be fun seeing how things progress, and at least the girl gets to hear all the boys' comments and can challenge them if they've been unkind.

Just one thing, expect plenty of inane banter and lots of enthusiasm from host Chantelle, but don't expect a polished and professional performance or bags of charisma.

After all, she was just a talentless Paris Hilton lookalike three months ago... and now she's a talentless Paris Hilton lookalike who's been given airtime so that Channel 4 can cash-in on her fame.

Ooh, we're such cynics!

Chantelle's Dream Dates, a six-part series, begins at 10pm on Wednesday the 12th of April 2006 on digital channel e4. Look out for the inevitable repeats if you miss it.
