Was anyone else completely unaware of this?
What was the TV show of your childhood? Was it Blue Peter? That's So Raven? Lizzie McGuire? The Suite Life Of Zack and Cody???
All those, obv. But a definite contender for the top 5 has to be YOUR FACE OR MINE.
It was the most brutal / horrible / entertaining show we've seen ever in our lives. Hosted by Jimmy Carr and June Sarpong, it was premised on a couple of contestants choosing who was the most attractive out of two faces on a screen, which were then put to an audience vote.
IT WAS SO CRUEL WE LOVED IT SO MUCH.
Then at the end they'd choose from two final mystery faces, and always act surprised when it turned out to be them. Even though it was every time. Apart from the time it was their mums. That was very brutal.
Anway, it's coming back to our screens in Spring of this year on Comedy Central and will be hosted by Jimmy Carr (again) and Katherine Ryan.
Jimmy said previously in a statement: "I’m delighted to be bringing back Your Face or Mine to Comedy Central.
"In an age when people are forever judging individuals on how they look, placing attractiveness on a pedestal above intelligence, and forcing others to fit societal norms of beauty, why not make them do all of those things, to their loved ones, on national television and for money?"
And managing director of producers, Leon Wilson, added: "We’re bringing this hugely popular and much loved gameshow bang up-to-date for the Tinder generation. It’s a devilish format perfectly suited to today’s swipe–right, swipe-left society, and we’re delighted that Jimmy will be guiding us through it."
