Doctor prescribes episode of Take Me Out to withdrawing Love Island fans


A doctor who has been inundated with withdrawing Love Island fans has issued a blanket prescription for a course of Take Me Outs, to be taken twice a day.

Take Me Out generally features a near-naked young man dancing in a fireman’s hat in front of 30 frothing women, which should, in turn, recreate the Love Island feeling.

The Doctor has been called to a number of homes where the Love Island fan has been found staring at a blank TV screen waiting for Celebrity Big Brother to start.

‘Paddy McGuinness’s show is an excellent modern day medicine,’ said the doctor.

‘Previously we could only prescribe a Dawson’s Creek or a Beverly Hills 90210 for people who desperately needed to watch a programme for teenagers,’ added the doctor.
