THIS IS WHERE FAN­TASIES GO TO BE LAUGHED AT

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

THE eight-week It’s A Knock­out se­ries is snobfree TV — pure, unadul­ter­ated child­ish fun. There’s What A Cracker, where con­tes­tants must scale a wall into a pool, swim­ming to bis­cuit-shaped pon­toons and get seven team­mates on board at one time. Or the power socket chal­lenge, where blind­folded guys with over­sized foam ‘‘plugs’’ on their heads must take di­rec­tion from the girls to con­nect with a socket. Oh and they’re be­ing spun on a turntable at the same time. Favourite games from the ’80s ver­sion have been tweaked, such as the giants shop­ping ex­er­cise, where play­ers dress as tow­er­ing ‘‘mums’’ wheel­ing a baby in a trol­ley around var­i­ous hur­dles. A de­lighted Charli Robin­son trills: ‘‘It’s all your It’s A Knock­out fan­tasies come true. I love it as long as they don’t kill me.’’
