When I first saw the trailers for this new reality show in which five ladies spy on their fellas during a lads’ holiday in Marbella I must admit I thought it looked like it might be fun. It seemed like Sun, Sex And Suspicious Parents – only with girlfriends instead of parents. Channel 5 mainly plugged it during and after Celebrity Big Brother and it certainly appeared less heavy going than what had been happening in that house. Then my questions began. If the lads think they are going on a lads’ holiday then – boys being boys – won’t they just act up for the cameras and get themselves into more trouble than they would have done if they’d gone camera-free? As for the girls, what happens if their man does something really despicable? Would filming her ensuing despair not be a little exploitative? Obviously any such moral issues would have been batted away instantly if the five couples taking part turned out to be attention seekers who appeared to be in it for the (small) chance of fame. So there was some relief when we were finally introduced to them. Let’s just say they all appeared to love the camera and none of them seemed like natural born keepers. Also, while “ Love Island rejects” would perhaps be a bit too harsh a description I’m willing to bet at least half of them have applied to be on the ITV2 hit at some point.
