Speaking to The Sun, he said âI think a lot of reality TV is puerile. I mean. Strictly Come Dancing is great â you learn how to dance. But to go to the other end, to put people in the jungle â I mean, I know itâs popular and people want to watch it, fair enough.
âBut from my point of view itâs rather dreary. Thereâs a much more exciting life going on out there.â?
Titchmarsh also said that he feels older viewers are being let down, with too few programmes aimed at them.
âI think the middle-aged audience is very badly served sometimes,â? he said. âItâs treated abominably by broadcasters who just think that the only audience worth going for is youth.â?
âI think advertisers underestimate the power of middle-aged and older people. Make your product good and convince them. As a viewer I get irritated when itâs geared all to the younger person.â?
So, donât watch Iâm A Celebrity… because itâs dreary. Watch The Alan Titchmarsh Show instead, because that is guaranteed to get your pulse racing. Or maybe, take a stand for televisionâs sake and donât watch either? The choices are endless.
