Forget Big Brother. Watching Paint Dry is the new reality show. The first reality show to do exactly what it says on the tin.
Every day a different kind of paint will be put on to a wall. Confirmed contestants include; matt, silk, gloss, satin, vinyl, eggshell textured and smooth masonry - all of whom are eagerly looking forward to their first brush with fame.
Watch the action here every day via video link-up and vote for your favourite paint. The show will run for eight weeks and the results of the daily paint votes will be will be announced at 5pm every day. Plus there'll be a special 'Emulsion Show' every Friday when the paint with the least votes will leave the programme and head back to the DIY store.
Keep your eyes peeled for special guest appearances and look out for subtle changes in both the painting techniques and the style of brushes used.
The final show will witness the unveiling of the nation's favourite paint climaxing with a live demolition of the famous wall. So, if you are passionate about a particular kind of paint, keep coming back and voting!
Go Brits!!! I'm definitely speechless this time.
