Will the 'Crip' Factor Make the Undateables Unwatchable?

Tuesday (3 April) sees the start of a new series on Channel 4 called The Undateables or as I like to call it Would You Shag A Crip? It follows disabled people as they look for love. There's nothing like a good freak show to improve the ratings. The advertising around this programme has been deliberately controversial. A series of billboards for The Undateables with pictures of six of the participants has the tagline "love is blind, disfigured, autistic." Channel 4 would undoubtedly say that this was to help encourage debate and things but I doubt a teenage disabled person would cope very well with being told they were undateable.
