Fáilte Towers - 15th August

More Clowning Around at FÁILTE TOWERS

The five remaining Fáilte Towers celebs were given a task with a difference today when a group of 15 seven and eight year olds arrived for a kiddie’s birthday party. Party organiser Michelle Heaton whipped her colleagues into shape as Brian Dowling served up a hastily concocted birthday cake and Don donned the greasepaint for a stint as the party clown.

Will the children be scarred for life? Tune in tomorrow night.

Meanwhile sources at the hotel say that tomorrow night will see the hotel’s first on-air proposal as a young Irishman prepares to propose to his Bulgarian girlfriend. The unsuspecting fiancé-to-be (or not, perhaps) will sit down this evening to a romantic meal for two; little does she know that her parents have flown over especially to see her and are secreted in one of the hotel bedrooms where her boyfriend has already asked for her hand. Will it be yes? Will it be no? Will Jennifer be the bridesmaid? All will be revealed tomorrow night.

Said an insider today: “The mood at Fáilte Towers is pretty good. John is missing Sean as they were good pals, but I think everyone has the home-stretch in sight and the focus is on getting out!”

Fáilte Towers continues on Saturday night, with the live final on RTÉ One on Sunday night. One celebrity will be checking-out tomorrow night, and the four remaining celebs will face the public vote on Sunday night. The public will decide, ultimately, who wins.

Over half a million viewers tuned in to Tuesday night’s show, when an average of 517,000 people watched, representing over 35% of people watching television, making the show the 2nd most-watched show in Ireland on Tuesday night across all channels available in Ireland. A peak of 636,000 people tuned in for the tense eviction.

Meanwhile, Wednesday night’s show was also watched by almost half a million people, making it the third most-watched programme in Ireland on Wednesday night.
