Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was a hit in the Us, but was attacked by some critics, who accused the show of exploiting its central star, 7-year-old beauty pageant contestant Alana 'Honey Boo Boo' Thompson. One critic described the show as a "horror story posing as a reality television programme".
UK commissions include fashion series Ultimate Shopper, which will feature Holly Valance, »
