    Okay - I'd like to see this

    Channel 4 is spending £5million on new show Space Cadets where the joke is on the contestants who will think they've been jetted to a Russian space agency for training. But they will be flown around Britain and the North Sea for four hours before landing at a disused UK airbase done up as a space centre.

    They will then be sent into 'space' for five days.

    Their shuttle is really a prop from hit movie Space Cowboys, and its launch will be faked with sound effects and vibrations.

    Later a giant screen outside the shuttle will beam pictures of space. There will be no need to simulate zero gravity as contestants will be told they are not far enough above Earth

    I know a few Space Cadets I could recommend for the show.
