It looks like summer 2017 is going to offer us the usual juicy reality TV fare, wat with a new series of Big Brother and Love Island on the cards, it looks like your viewing for the foreseeable future is sorted.
But there’s always room for one more reality show and Channel 5 have come up with the utter opposite of Love Island – new show We’re On A Break The new show will concentrate on couples that are mid way through breaking up. And as a last ditch attempt to save their failing relationships, all the couples live together in a resort in Mexico.
