It's A Royal Knockout Is Back!
According to the 'News Biscuit' - the BBC are considering a re-stage of the infamous 'It's A Royal Knockout' as a fundraiser for the Duchess of York?
Buckingham Palace has today announced plans to reprise the one-off 'It's A Royal Knockout' tournament with all proceeds going to their favourite charity case, the Duchess of York.
"If you are lucky enough to be born into privilege," said Prince Edward, the brains behind the original 1987 fund-raiser, "then I think it's beholden on you to try and give something back. Mummy really wants to give Fergie back, so fingers crossed we can raise enough to get her back on her feet and out of our hair for good."
The evening's entertainment will kick-off with a twist on the traditional greasy-pole challenge. Journalists from The Sun, The Mirror, The Mail and The Express will dress up as Arab sheikhs and attempt to gain access to Prince Andrew by running through a treacherous oil slick while attached to bungee ropes and delivering £500,000 in a briefcase to the Duchess of York...
It's A Royal Knockout was a British slapstick television game show that aired in 1987, based on the original It's a Knockout (the British version of Jeux Sans Frontières) but including members of the British Royal Family.
The programme featured Princess Anne, Prince Edward and the Duke and Duchess of York as team captains, each representing a chosen charity and dressed in novelty costumes. BBC Radio 1 was there with Mike Smith doing the Breakfast Show and Steve Wright was there with The Radio 1 Roadshow.
