Dark side of reality.

Byline: Joan Burnie

A SPOOF French TV gameshow supposedly proves that, if offered the opportunity, the majority of us would torture someone to death in front of the cameras if there were a few Euros and five minutes of fame in it.

The audience was apparently totally unaware the programme was a hoax and roared the contestants on to "punish, punish, punish" the victim, while he screamed in pretty authentic terror.

Some, however, have suggested they knew all along it was a set-up.

But having watched the baying which orchestrates the X Factor auditions, not least towards vulnerable contestants, I wouldn't be too sure.

Vee ver only acting under TV reality orders.
