Get Your Reality Fix With The Best Shows On The Box

Summer might be over, but the selection of reality TV treats on the box has never been hotter! Some of our favourites from over the years are back and better than ever – so grab the popcorn and dive into the action…



Wednesday @ 9pm, Virgin Media One, Virgin TV 103


If you like watching TV to see people watching TV, then we’ll hardly need to remind you that Gogglebox is back! Whether prompting uproarious laughter or provoking rather more serious thoughts, the crews on the couches feel like our mates by now - even if we’re a little unimpressed that Michael Tea Higgins has been bumped for a Pope cosy this time round! 



Saturday and Sunday on Virgin Media One, Virgin TV 103


The judges might have changed but the story remains the same, as the good, the bad, and the tone-deaf hit the stage with the hopes of becoming Britain’s next singing sensation. Robbie Williams, Ayda Field and Louis Tomlinson - along with the evergreen Simon Cowell, of course - are only just beginning to sort through the contestants, so hop on board now to make sure you catch as much as you can!




Saturday on BBC One, Virgin TV 108


High-kicking its way back onto our screens, it’ll be sambas, salsas and sequins for the next few months as another clutch of familiar faces flaunt their fancy footwork! Former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts has been installed as an early favourite - being, y’know, a professional dancer and all that! - but if you ask us it’s the rank amateurs who are going to be most entertaining! Our early call for the most unintentionally hilarious? Graeme Swann, who most certainly looks like he has two left feet!




Nightly on Virgin Media Two, Virgin TV 105


After the fireworks of the celebrity edition, a new batch of civilians have just entered the famous abode; we’d suggest they’re “normal” people, but we all know how odd the BB house can get! Superfans should also hop on over to Virgin Media Three right after the show, where Rylan will deliver the Bit On The Side – where the fireworks are as frequent as they are in the house!




Monday @ 9pm, Virgin Media One, Virgin TV 103


Having shared a bunk bed with Nathan Carter (no, we’re not jealous in the slightest…) and cosying up to TOWIE’s Gemma Collins, TV’s loveliest lodger is already off to a flyer this season. The likes of Nadine Coyle, Ivan Yates and Deirdre O’Kane will be opening their homes to the bould Ms Kennedy in the coming weeks; we’re not going to guess what they’ll get up to, but we’re pretty sure that dull moments will be few and far between!
