The Further Voyages Of…

The castlist for the 2008 ‘I’m A Celebrity: Get Me Out Of Here’ social experiment has been announced today, and the main surprise was that there were many actual stars in the line-up. For those of you who do not live in Britain and thus do not understand, this scientific project has happened once a year in Britain for the past seven or so years. A group of celebrities are taken to the Australian jungles (statistically the second-most likely place to get killed in the World, after Bridlington) and stranded there for a few weeks, and kept under surveillance. This is so that British scientists can study the celebrities, and eventually cure cancer. It’s also televised, so that the costs of hiring such massively famous celebrities can be regained afterwards.

This year the celebrities include:
  • Esther Rantzen (she stars in legal adverts);
  • Robert Kilroy-Silk (a notable fascist, I’m informed);
  • Martina Navratilova (the producers are hoping for hot lez action this year);
  • George Takei.

That’s right. 'The Tak' is going to take part in the show this year. Interestingly, this announcement comes just days after it was announced that gay marriage was banned in California. Is there a link here? It seems like Takei could be trying to foster a welcome from the British, before he moves over here permanently. If he does move here, this would be quite the feather in the cap for Britain, one which would make us quits with America for the whole ‘Independence’ debacle. But anyway, that's not important.

Because Wilftonville officially endorse George Takei for King Of The Jungle 2008.

That's right: we're coming out for Takei. In a thinly-disguised jab at all the websites and TV shows which slavishly covered the American Election as if it wasn't incredibly obvious who was going to win all along, Wilftonville will now be devoted almost exclusively to keeping track of Takei's actions within the Aussie jungle. This is going to be fun!
