Setanta's Casting Couch to be postponed temporarily

Plans to broadcast angling's latest TV show - Casting Couch - have been put on hold.

The first show, which is hosted by former Olympic decathlete Dean Macey, was due to be shown on Setanta Sports today (June 16th) but due to technical difficulties the launch date has been temporarily postponed.

Ashley Sim's is the brains behind the project and he insisted it was only a short-term problem.

"We are really sorry that we've had to move the start date but I'd like to reassure everybody that Casting Couch will be hitting TV screens in the very near future,"  he said.

The delay is not related to satellite channel Setanta's recent financial difficulties.
