LEIPZIG, GERMANY - MAY 26: Gothic enthusiasts take a break during the annual Wave-Gotik-Treffen music festival on May 26, 2012 in Leipzig, Germany. The event began in the 1990s and has since grown into one of the biggest gatherings of Goth scene followers in Europe with around 20,000 participants. Many of those attending wear elaborate outfits and makeup which is a departure from the traditional black of the Goth scene. Punk remains a strong influence in today's Goth style as witnessed in Leipzig, but newer trends, with names like Cybergoth and Steampunk have emerged that blend bold colors with Victorian fashion elegance and 19th and 20th century fashion accessories into a look reminiscent of a mutated Venetian carnival. The five-day festival includes performances by around 200 bands. (Photo by Adam Berry/Getty Images)
As this series of Love Island finishes, it is now thought that ITV have missed out on their original target audience of Goths and Emos.
ITV’s Head of Entertainment, Peter Thape is under increasing pressure to resign after publically acknowledging that he has failed to capture the interest of his targeted demographic.
Thape was criticised heavily when, at the programs media launch, he also spoke of hoping to embroider the interest of typical Radio Four listeners, and those who might ordinarily frequent The Ballet.
‘I can’t see where we’ve gone wrong? We’ve ended up with a completely vacuous, vain, and unimaginative audience,’ admitted Thape.
‘Good job there’s millions of people like that,’ added Thape.
