The Truth about Goats
Hosted by the delectable Holly Willoughby, ITV’s flagship light entertainment programme will bring together four curmudgeonly editions of Magna Carta, for the first time in 800 years. With tears and laughter, Holly will reunite the handwritten documents with a group disenfranchised Barons, one dyspeptic Monarch and a leper called Ulric.
Since Runnymede 1215 the copies have been separated, unaware of the other’s existence. Subsequently, the studio audience will be treated to an emotional roller-coaster of surprises; including a witch trial, rolling a burning barrel down a hill and Holly using sheep’s dung as a contraceptive.
The show will begin with Cilla Black singing the theme song: ”…life is full of surprises. Not least of which is Black Death’. It will also feature the touching story of a serf who has raised money for his local Crusade to the Holy Lands.
Most will be hoping that King John and his rebellious Barons will be able to bury the hatchet somewhere other than each other’s head. Meanwhile, the Magna Cartas will be sprinkled with their tears as the affable Holly, egged on by the audience, tortures them with the rack, thumbscrews and the Cilla’s back catalogue.
