Viewers rage over Game Of Talents

Game Of Talents’ first episode saw Tess Daly and her fellow Strictly colleague Craig Revel Horwood take part.

As the show aired, many rushed to Twitter to share their thoughts.

One viewer tweeted: “#GameOfTalents is possibly the worst television I’ve seen in some time!”

“On BBC or ITV it’s between #icanseeyourvoice or #GameOfTalents. Now that wall-to-wall coverage of Prince Philip doesn’t seem that bad at all,” said a second.

A third said: “I don’t think a show’s left me with the feeling of such a violent shrug in some time, so well done I guess?”

“I watched the first 10 mins of the new programme #GameOfTalents. Load of rubbish in my opinion,” ranted a fourth who had clearly switched off. 

While a fifth added: “Amanda Holden on BBC and Tess Daly on ITV. It’s like choosing between a cough and a cold #GameOfTalents #ICanSeeYourVoice!”
