This year’s TV guide is crammed with more of your favourite reality TV shows.

From dating to drama, soap-style entertainment and gruelling physical challenges – 2018 has it all.

Here is your essential guide to the must-watch reality TV shows that will unfold over the next 12 months.

Some are brand new, others are classic, but they’re all a must-watch!

FEBRUARY: Survival of the Fittest

From the makers of Love Island comes a raunchy new entertainment show that combines physical challenges with romance.

Hosted by Laura Whitmore, the brand new entertainment show pits men against women in a series of battles.

Who will come out top? Stay tuned to ITV2 to find out.

MARCH: Made in Chelsea

Yes, the stars of Made in Chelsea will be back on your TV screens sooner than you may have expected.

The 15th series of the show will return in March, with familiar faces in Spencer Matthews, Louise Thompson, Ollie Locke, Jamie Lang and more.

Bring on the cocktails.

APRIL: Britain’s Got Talent

Lead your way towards summer with the hottest talent show in the UK. Ant and Dec return as hosts while judges David Walliams, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell are confirmed to do the rest of the bickering on the side.

MAY: Love Island

Brace yourselves. After the huge success of Love Island 2017, the raunchy series will return to ITV2 at the very end of May or first week of June.

Who will follow in the footsteps of Kem Cetinay, Amber Davies and Chris Hughes and become the next superstar celeb couple?

JUNE: Big Brother

The eight week fly on the wall show is back for its potentially last series on Channel 5. After it was seriously trumped by Love Island last year producers will be keen to avoid a clash of start dates.

Off the back of Celebrity Big Brother’s success however, who knows what could happen.

AUGUST: Celebrity Big Brother

What, more Celebrity Big Brother you say! With Big Brother sandwiched in-between, a second Celebrity version of the show will air in August, if not the very end of July.

We don’t know much about the show although having January’s CBB ruling almost like an experiment, producers should be able to have a good crack at what makes good reality TV. You’d hope.

AUGUST: Great British Bake Off

It’s difficult to pinpoint a lot info about the next show because it’s so bloody far away. Can’t we have a bake off now!

Applications to be on the series are already closed however, which just goes to show how cake enthusiastic the nation of Britain is!


Considering every judge on the show is rumoured with an exit, we know very little about the new series of X-Factor 2018. Expect some singing. Expect Simon Cowell. And that’s all you need to know.

OCTOBER: Strictly Come Dancing, The Apprentice

NOVEMBER: I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here

OTHER: The Only Way is Essex (awaiting confirmation)
