Chart Throb. The ultimate pop quest. Ninety five thousand hopefuls. Three judges. Just one winner. And that s Colin Simms, the genius behind the show. Colin always wins because Colin writes the rules. But this year, as he sits smugly in judgement upon the mingers, clingers and blingers whom he has pre-selected in his carefully scripted search for a star, he has no idea that the rules are changing. The real is about to be put back into reality television and Colin and his fellow judges (the nation s favourite mum and the other bloke) are about to become ex-factors themselves. Ben Elton, author of POPCORN and DEAD FAMOUS returns to blistering comic satire with a savagely hilarious deconstruction of the world of modern television talent shows. Chart Throb. One winner. A whole bunch of losers.
