Pop Idol now Kung Fu Idol

China's Shaolin Temple are to host a "reality TV" show where viewers will have the opportunity to vote on their favourite Kung FU martial arts experts. Unfortunately all contestants must be men (boo!) and practicing monks from the temple are not allowed to compete (boo! again).

The Winners of "Chinese Kung FU Star TV competition" (catchy), which started last week on chinese TV will be given the opportunity to play roles in a number of TV series about the legendary Shaolin Temple with the possibility of landing a role in a Hollywood movie.

So watch this space, we could be watching the discovery of the next great talent after Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan and Jet Li .
