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".

TLC's other content will include Us ratings hit Breaking Amish, which follows the lives of five young Amish/Mennonite men and women who move to New York, and Oprah Winfrey's Oprah's Next Chapter.

UK commissions include fashion series Ultimate Shopper, which will feature Holly Valance, »
