With Eurovision time coming round once again, we got to talking in the office about our top TV guilty pleasures. Read on, but please, please don't judge.
4. Diagnoses murder
Starring the legendary Dick Van Dyke and his son Barry, this comedy-drama about a crime solving doctor has held the BBC2 lunchtime slot for years, delighting students and stay at home spouses alike. Over the course of 8 years the show has run 178 episodes. Hands up if you've seen them all... just us then?
3. Jeremy Kyle show
Since the Jerry Springer show first burst onto our TV screens in the 90's, we've imported a string of similar shows from our cousins across the Atlantic. This trend wasn't too bad until we started to make our own, which in 2005 culminated in the Jeremy Kyle show. The lie detector, the DNA test and an annoying man shouting at people for very little reason. We all know the format and whether we like to admit it or not, we've all watched it at some point!
2. The only way is Essex
Yep, we just went there. Another British take on an US format, 'Towie' first burst onto our screens in 2011 in all it's heavily made up 'glory'. Yes, we know it's all staged, yes we know they're all incredibly annoying, but maybe we'll just watch one more episode – I mean where else could you hear a conversation like this?
1 .Take me out
Now the dating game show may not be a new concept, but somehow this ITV staple manages to be cringeworthy and addictive on a whole new level. A bit like a mash-up of Blind Date, X-Factor (the early rounds) and Battle Royale - this is car crash TV at it's very finest. As Paddy likes to say, 'if you're turned off, turn off'... but sometimes it's just so damned hard to do. Just take a look here.
So there you have it, four of the hungryhouse team's most shameful secrets laid bare. There's more, oh believe us there's more, but perhaps it's best to quit while we're ahead!
