More votes in reality TV than the general election?

This morning it's been revealed that more 18 to 22-year-olds have cast their ballot in reality TV shows than are planning to vote for the next government.

With just over six weeks to go until the General Election a poll of potential first time voters found:

  • Around a third voted on the X-Factor or Strictly Come Dancing

  • While less than a quarter were planning voting in the election.

  • 70% said they would consider voting for 'none of the above' if the option was available

  • And a third agreed with comedian Russell Brand on refusing to vote as a protest that political parties don't offer them anything
