more celeb shows debut in the UK.
The British are getting all hot and bothered over celebrities in reality TV shows. That, or they just realize that realize it’s better to keep their C-list celebs locked away rather than allowing them to roam the streets. After the finale of the latest I’m a Celebrity broke records, Five debuted Back To Reality on Sunday night. 1.8 million people watched the new reality show, in which the celebrities “live together in the luxury mansion and complete reality challenges.” The celebrities include Uri Geller, Pop Idol‘s Rik Waller, and American reality TV “star” Joe Millionaire‘s Sarah Kozer. Up next, the British will lock eight celebrities for a week in Chillingham Castle, which is apparently haunted. I’m Famous And Frightened! will debut March 12 on Living TV.
