Love Island finished this week and if you are finding yourself endlessly channel hopping the moment it hits 9pm, we got you. After almost 8 weeks of loud kissing, re-couplings and ‘having the word gorlfriend’ stuck in your head, the finale hit our screens. We have rounded up loads of new reality shows to help add some drama into your life.

After a year of being locked down with no social interaction, I think we are all missing a little drama. Discover our fave reality shows that will help you vicariously live out other people’s arguments, make ups and break ups.

Reality shows worth investing your time in

My unorthadox life

Available on Netflix, this show follows fashion mogul Julia Haart, who is a former member of an ultra-Orthodox Jewish community. It explores her relationship with religion, her business and her family. It is a great insight into the life of a fashion CEO as well as life within religious communities.

Married at first sight uk

We have all been hooked on Married At First Sight Australia, but now it is time for the Brits to walk their way down the aisle. The latest series of Married At First Sight UK. The episodes will be airing weekly on E4, with 7 new couples saying ‘I Do’.

Real housewives of Beverly Hills 

Nothing says ‘reality tv’ like a new series of Real Housewives. The latest series is currently airing on Hayu and it isn’t one to be missed. Although series 11 started in May, you can binge it all on catch up.

Cooking With Paris

It’s almost 15 years since the last series of The Simple Life and we NEED more Pairs Hilton on our screens. Luckily for us, Paris is making a comeback with her Netflix original, Cooking With Paris. This is a celebrity cooking show like you have never seen before.


If you have a ‘Below Deck’ shaped hole in your life, then it is time toget invested in a whole new crew. Below Deck Mediterranean Season 5 is now airing on All4. Expect to see all the same drama and luxury, instead this time we are sailing to the Isles of Greece, Ibiza and the Amalfi Coast.

Selling Sunset season 4

We’ve been waiting for this one. The Selling Sunset team haven’t officially released the air date of Season 4, but according to Heather’s Insta, the team are back in business.
