Kilt-y as charged.

Byline: Kevin O'Sullivan

SATURDAY night... and ITV proudly presents a parade of scantily-clad drag queen lookalikes and an extremely northern not-very-funny comic called Paddy McGuinness.

"I'm the lovemeister general," reveals Paddy, helpfully. Hooray, it's telly's thoroughly modern new dating show Take Me Out - a jarringly sexist cattle market featuring 30 "single sirens" in a forwardthinking throwback to the golden age of demeaning beauty pageants.

Girls plastered in clown make-up stand there as men emerge from the "love lift" and regally decide which lucky lady they'll be kind enough to "whisk off to one of the most exclusive hotspots in Manchester". Wow... no expense spent!

But here's Scotsman Jim dazzling the lassies with his amazing party piece.

Removing his ankle-length kilt to show everyone the shiny blue leotard he's wearing underneath. Spellbinding.

Dragging on for an interminable hour, this dinosauric drivel is far too long. Memo to the producers: It's 2010. Not 1950.


Sap-stick comedy... Paddy
