If you watch BBCAmerica, you know interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowes. Now, on an upcoming BBC show, he will be trained for a new career in politics.
But it's not just another whacky celebrity reality show -- really! This has a noble purpose: "'We chose Laurence because we’re looking to make a programme that would make politics more accessible to the people,' says a BBC spokesman." Hmm, I would think with the BBC coming in for such criticism recently, they'd want to steer clear of the subject. But what do I know?
Meanwhile I assume this means we can look forward to Paula Abdul tackling education policy on the American version next year.
