Stroud brings you 'The Good Weed Guide'

#1 - she'd compact the sediment rather than lifting it. You want someone more angular like Louise Mensch.

The Hardest Man in Lancashire

Contenders selected from the less-celebrated towns of Lancashire (Rishton, Colne, Brierfield etc). Fighting talk, local rivalries and beefing are actively encouraged. Each week has a different event: bare-knuckle boxing, cage fighting, 'new generation' MMA etc. Commentary by a couple of smug Yorkshiremen, at least one of who gets punched out at some point in every episode

That'd be an AB magnet.

AB could appear as a regular character witness, testifying to the terrifying hardness of the contestants involved, and relaying in tremulous tones how they had reversed their SUV over his garden-gnome collection, or dropped their dumb-bell onto his toes

Milton Keynes

Murder in Midsummer Boulevard. Just set up a remote camera in any of the underpasses for a month and then edit and present the results. It would be a new reality TV sensation, and cheap to produce. You could then do a celebrity version on the back of it.

It was the man in the tank-top and flares!

A selection of twentysomethings have to live in a remote Shropshire farmhouse. The winners get a daytrip to Shrewsbury.

You could make them walk up the Long Mynd, in the snow.

Closed Pubs in Croydon - not because I think it's a good idea, it's a terrible idea, but because some idiot's managed to make a whole almost-article about it and I thought we should all share the joy.

https://www.mylondon.news/news/nostalgia/brilliant-1990s-croydon-pub-crawl-21473330.amp

For the avoidance of doubt, the crawl could never have been done, because not all of the pubs were open at the same time, and furthermore, that's not a route, it's an incompetent game of darts.
