OVER at the Lea Valley Athletics Centre, an emotional Christine McGuinness was sounding less like a 100-metre hurdler and more like Lee Harvey Oswald as she geared up for ITV’s latest celebrity challenge, this week. “The thought of the crowd, the people, the gun . . .” the grassy knoll, the CIA cover-up. “I’ve only got one shot,” she sobbed.

But who would she take out? A fellow competitor? One of the ITV presenters? Or, better still, the cretin who brought this thing back from the dead?

It’s The Games, which ran over four series, in the mid-Noughties and is remembered, if at all, for Bobby Davro’s spectacular bellyflop in the ten-metre diving event.
