I’m sure you’ll agree that one of the good things about being in a long-term relationship is that you never have to go through the ordeal of meeting a partner’s parents for the first time ever again.
I’m not sure if I will be able to watch the new series of Meet the Parents tonight without hiding my eyes ..
Alex Zane hosts the reality game show in which an unsuspecting member of the public is challenged to spend an entire evening with their partner’s family – in fact a group of actors trying to make events as uncomfortable as possible.
The victim in this first episode is poor Greg, who has been set up by his devious girlfriend Jenny unaware that his every move is being recorded on 30 hidden cameras.
Her family from hell consists of a mother who communicates with aliens, a father who appears to be gambling away the family home, a total geek of a brother, and a sister with a secret life as a high-class escort.
With writing contributions from duo Stewart Williams and Tim Allsop, there are six episodes to glue yourself to, starting tonight at 9pm on E4.
