It's a sad day indeed when you have to use a reality TV show to point out the absurdities of modern life. It's an even sadder day when the people watching the show are actually more awful than the contestants.

Yet that is the strange position in which we now find ourselves. I am talking, of course, about Love Island.

Due to my other job as a TV critic, I often have to watch this sort of brain-killing nonsense (I do it so you don't have to, etc) and I've long since given up on being surprised or appalled by the antics of the sort of dead-eyed, fame hungry, eejits who appear on them.
