Though he didn't quite take home the title of champion in Love Island 2019, Ovie Soko was undoubtedly the season's breakout star. 

Standing tall at 6ft7, the basketball player found himself with fame unlike ever before, thanks to his charming personality and modern-day gentleman characteristics.

Upon leaving the villa, Soko found himself with some big decisions to make. Did he want to pursue the life of a celebrity in showbiz, or return to the sport he’d always loved?

Fortunately for Soko, he has some friends who have already tread the reality TV path to guide him along the way. 

I'm A Celeb winner and former Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison chats to him about making money after finding fame, whilst original TOWIE cast member Mario Falcone warns of what he sees as the dark side of the business.

With both pros and cons in abundance, it’s ultimately up to Soko on exactly where he goes from here.

Though the country is feeling more divided than ever before, Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) has worries more close to home, in hoping to secure an appropriate bride for Prince Charles (Josh O'Connor), who remains unmarried at 30.

Enter young Lady Diana Spencer (Emma Corrin), who's instantly welcomed into the hearts of the British people as she transforms from teenager to Princess of Wales.

Of course, we all know how this story ends and, behind closed doors, Princess Diana’s life is anything but magical.

No Man’s Land - Starts November 22nd on Starzplay

Félix Moati takes on the role of French youth Antoine in this new series, which delves into the depths of the Syrian civil war through his eyes, as he hunts for his presumed to be dead sister.

Though the rest of his family believe her to have died in a suicide bombing, a chance spotting of someone who appears to be his sibling on a news report sets him off in pursuit of answers.

Joining forces with a unit of Kurdish female fighters, along with international idealists who support their cause, he finds himself in some increasingly-dangerous situations.

With a compelling story and a glimpse into the tragic events currently going on in Syria, this isn’t a new show you should sleep on.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2020 - Start date to be announced, reported to be Sunday November 15th

Whilst we’re still waiting on a launch date, the celebrities taking part in this year’s Bushtucker trials are all lined up and on stand by to join Ant and Dec for a first-of-its-kind series, taking place inside a Welsh castle.

Exactly how the series is going to work this year hasn’t yet been revealed, but trading the lush jungle of Australia with a spooky and rundown fort will certainly be interesting.

We’re sure that, despite the change in location, producers will be hoping to keep the authentic I’m A Celeb experience as close to what audiences are used to as possible.

With names like Mo Farah, Victoria Derbyshire and Beverley Callard all rumoured to be taking part, it could be one of the most entertaining seasons to-date!
