Can it be entirely coincidental that on the very same evening that the BBC bade farewell to its high-rating series about older people (New Tricks, in case you hadn't realised), it launched a new show about older people, Close To The Edge, a 7-part Reality TV show based around a group of older men and women living in Bournemouth?

Nice guy, Joey Essex. Modest too, or at least he gave a convincing impression of being an unpretentious Essex-boy when he turned up for a chat on my Sunday morning radio programme Pienaar's Politics. No small feat, considering the star of the hit reality show The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE) was surrounded by a small army of camera operators, producers, fixers, publicists and, for all I know, food tasters and hair-gel bearers , when he joined my guests and me in the studio and talked politics for 15 minutes.

No stranger to reality TV and already a successful businesswoman, Gemma Collins clearly has some idea of what she is doing. The truth detection consultant and cynic in me wonders if Bobby Norris' best friend knows her audience better than we think, because although the anxiety is real her response to it does seem to be slightly disproportionate
