Subject: Location Location Location want your help

Dear House hunter
 
Channel 4’s Location Location Location want your help to challenge the stigma around mental illness.
 
Kirstie and Phil want to find dream homes for house hunters who live with a mental health condition.
 
If you have experienced depression or anxiety, an eating disorder,  a panic disorder or any other serious mental illness, are currently looking for a home and want Phil and Kirstie to help, then please get in touch.
 
We are looking for people who have experienced a mental health issue and who would be happy to step forward and talk about their experiences.
 
By showing people with varying mental health issues going through the milestones of everyday life – like buying a home – we hope to take the emphasis off the health issue and put it back on the person.
 
So if you are looking for a property, please get in touch with Daniela asap on 0141 *** **** , or send an email about yourself and your property search including your phone number to location@iwcmedia.co.uk
 
Kind regards

I think that programme already has more than its quota of mentalists.

ME: Yes Krusty, I have a mental health condition.

K: What is it? Would you like to share?

ME: Yes, every time I see you on the TV I want to jump off a tall building.

How much more mileage can they possibly get out of that tired old format Location Location Location.

Maybe I'm just getting grumpy in my old age, but is this really the best programming idea C4 can come up with.

Actually, I have a panic disorder brought on by the prospect of having a mahoosive mortgage for a pile of baked clay.

The parody writes itself. Imagine Anne from Little Britain being advised on house buying by Kirsty.

Kirsty: To secure the property you should make an offer of 10% over the asking price.
Anne: Ugh ugh ugh!
Kirsty: Do you want me to call the agent for you?
Anne: Ugh ugh ugh!

Kirsty: They've accepted the offer. You're going to be a homeowner!
Anne urinates over Kirsty

Is that a wind up?

Can property TV stoop any lower or get any more surreal?

Those two w*nkers bullying retards into buying overpriced housing - this is unconscionable surely!?

Are mental health issues a prerequisite for getting the "punter's job" then?
I guess you have to be a couple of sandwiches short of a picnic to buy one of their recommendations!

Only HALF a mind... you'll be perfect for the show... :lol:

Plenty of vendors locally that could be right for the show... suffering from delusions... think a 3 bed shitbox with no garden is worth £400k

Comes to something when nobody wants Phil and Kirsty to act for them in the purchase of a house, so they target people with a mental illness

Is there no limit to the level they will stoop?

Someone should sign up, play along for a bit, then do this every time the camera starts rolling:

Then when they get angry, you could cry and claim it's a symptom of your condition.
