Review: Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners

We really need* more programmes that artificially set mutually antagonistic people in conflict against each other, writes Mark Lewis

Shitty house. Shitty idea 
Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners (Tuesday Channel 4, 8pm) puts super-clean people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in the homes of obsessively unclean people with whatever the opposite of OCD is. The supercleans are bright orange harridans with faces so buffed they look like burns victims. The revolting uncleans... well, the revolting uncleans have got shit in their kitchens.

I really don't know where this ends. But if any Channel 4 commissioners are reading, here are some suggestions:

It's Raining, Cats and Dogs: feral toms and hungry pitbulls are put outside in appalling weather and asked to share an umbrella.

Or this:

Obama’s Republican Tea Party: The US President discusses the abolition of the British monarchy with 911 Truthers over a lovely cup of Earl Grey.

Or this obvious TV gold:

Holy Land Cartoon Critique: A Palestinian would-be suicide bomber is made to evaluate a picture of Mohammed drawn by an Israeli Mossad assassin.
