Celebrity Big Brother-
Denise Welch beat Frankie Cocozza, Gareth Thomas, Michael Madsen, and Karissa and Kristina Shannon on the final night of CBB and took home the crown. Shortly after the show, Welch announced that she was leaving her husband, which explains all the flirting with Madsen. Since the show the Shannon twins have been planning their own reality TV show, as have the "Hugh Hefners" of England, Kirk Norcross and Frankie Cocozza. Norcross and Cocozza's show is set to be finalised this week and will air on channel 5, there has been no recent news on the Shannon twins show.

Big Fat Gypsy Weddings-
Big Fat Gypsy Weddings is now back! Every Tuesday at 9pm on Channel 4. The show follows travellers as the girls attend their first holy communions and the women get married. The weddings and communions are always filled with huge dresses, lots of fake tan, and make very good TV. Make sure you tune in!
After the 1st series, which we loved, the cast are eagerly awaiting the news on whether or not they have been commissioned for series 2. We hope that the show will be commissioned, stick with us for updates.
The Only Way Is Essex-
The BAFTA winning show is back! So far we've seen James "Arg" and Lydia split up, and Mario and Lucy split up and then rekindle their love. The show is different without Mark Wright, Harry Derbridge, Kirk Norcross and Maria Fowler, but we still love it. We have been introduced to new characters, James 'Diags' one of Joey's close friends, Georgina, a mutual friend of all the girls, and Ricky, another friend of the boys. Joey has fallen for Georgina however the feelings aren’t yet reciprocated! Tune into TOWIE every Wednesday and Sunday at 10pm on ITV2. If you don't, you'll be "100%, Well Jell!"
Geordie Shore is also back on our screens, with an extended 8-episode run, every Tuesday at 10pm on MTV. The cast has two new additions, Rebecca and Ricci, however Greg has left. Vicky and Sophie began the new series with boyfriends, however there is a budding romance between Vicky and new male Ricci. This week we find out if she chooses her boyfriend or Ricci. James finally 'banged' after two series, but not with Holly, despite her being desperate for it. However, trailers for this week’s episode hint that Holly and James may finally get it on. Vicky and new female have been fighting a lot and they definitely don't like each other! Gary and Charlotte also 'banged' multiple times, including on the 1st night in the new house. As a result of this and their strange on/off relationship, Charlotte left the house, however she returns this week. Jay and Rebecca have also been part of a budding relationship. Tune in this week to see the cast grafting by doing spray tans, and going out clubbing and getting MORTAL! We'd also like to say thank you to Gary and Vicky from the show for following us on twitter.
