The British public can be pretty inventive.
And, when it comes to alcohol, they’ll find any excuse to prise open a bottle of wine or crack the tops from a case of beers.
Put the two together and you get this… seven reality TV drinking games!

1. Ibiza Weekender
A simple and effective drinking game based on the overuse of a few classic Ibiza Weekender keywords.
Although series four has come to a close, you can catch up with all 10 episodes on the ITV player.
Slam a shot every time a boy guest uses the term “weapon” and you’ve got one hell of a night on your hands.
New drinking game, have a shot every time the boy guests say 'weapon' #IBIZAWEEKENDER

1 shot: Every time a female guest screams in excitement.
Down your drink: Throughout any Chyna v Jordan argument.
1 shot: Every time El Jefe says something sassy.
2. Celebs Go Dating
New dating series Celebs Go Dating proved an instant U.K classic and only recently finished its time on E4.
Catch up on the Channel 4 player and get a little messy this weekend.
Stop saying Cape Verde on @CelebsGoDating. If it was a drinking game I'd not remember the end of the episode 😵

3. Made in Chelsea
Airing every Monday night on E4 at 10 pm, start the week as you mean to go on, with a bottle of booze and a Made in Chelsea drinking game.
Of course, to suit the super posh characters of SW3 this drinking game is more on the civilised side.
