The Se­cret Life of the Ball­room 8pm, W

The Guardian - The Guide - - Tv Films - JS

Re­al­ity TV might be over-reliant on ex­treme cir­cum­stances and wacky char­ac­ters, but this is too far the other way. Five pairs of or­di­nary Brits with no ball­room danc­ing ex­pe­ri­ence – three cou­ples, a woman and her gay friend, and a mother and son – em­bark on in­ten­sive train­ing. Can they ac­quire enough ex­per­tise to hold their own on the com­pet­i­tive “Sun­day cir­cuit”? Every­one’s nice, but with noth­ing at stake there’s no rea­son to care.
