Calm down, calm down! It's only two reality soaps
Any doubts so-called 'reality soaps' are taking over will be swept aside at the news that two more UK-based shows are heading for our TV screens.
Hot on the heels of the Bafta-winning The Only Way Is Essex, aka TOWIE, (ITV2), Made In Chelsea (E4) and Geordie Shore (MTV) comes Liverpool-set programmes Desperate Scousewives (no, really), to be broadcast on Channel 4, and MTV's Mersey Shore.

Little wonder a Mersey spin-off has been commissioned; casting sessions are said to be underway. The Sun reports that...

Critics on both sides of the Atlantic have universally acclaimed this multi-award winning comedy series. To mark its 10th anniversary, we present some trivia about The Office...
MTV's Geordie Shore girls hail their Geordie idol
Have you been watching MTV's Geordie Shore? The show (inspired by Jersey Shore, the hugely successful US version) has been a massive talking point - even with politicians.
Well, in honour of one of Newcastle's famous daughters, the Geordie Shore girls pay tribute to Cheryl Cole's most iconic looks in this week's more! magazine.

Banned! Spartacus is a different man on some DVD posters
This is the approved version. Not bad eh?
But the unapproved version would probably make you spit out your coffee.
