I TALK TELLY

FIRST LOOK Trailers: Celebrity Showmance, Chris and Kem, The Last Post, Red Dwarf XII

This week’s new telly trailers include two new ITV2 shows, a new BBC One drama and the return of Red Dwarf.

Here are the latest telly trailers to have hit the internet this week…


Celebrity Showmance | ITV2, Wednesday 4th October at 9pm

This summer, Chloe Sims, Lady Victoria Hervey, Hayley Hasselhoff, Abz Love, Jamie O’Hara and Kyle Christie have spent the entire summer pretending to be in a relationship, all in the name of a brand new ITV2 show, Celebrity Showmance.

These six single celebrities have been paired into three very unlikely ‘couples’ and set ridiculous challenges to attract maximum social media attention. They have to persuade their friends, family and fans that it’s real, and more importantly, generate the most likes and comments on social media.

For each challenge, they must act out scenarios based on the stereotypical phases of famous celebrity relationships that we see splashed across social media, with each challenge culminating in a photo or video, which the celebrities must post on social media.

The couple that generates the highest number of likes, comments, shares and retweets about their relationship is awarded the most points, so the pressure is on to take the most iconic selfie.

The couple with the highest score at the end of the series will be awarded a trophy and declared winners in the game of Celebrity Showmance!


Chris and Kem: Straight Outta Love Island | ITV2, Sunday 1st & Monday 2nd October at 9pm

If there’s one TV show that dominated this Summer, it was Love Island. Since it ended, life hasn’t been the same. Yes you can follow them on Twitter, Instagram or Snapchat, but it’s not the same.

But it’s OK because the nation’s favourite couple from the show, not winners Kem and Amber, but Chris Hughes and Kem Cetinay are back with a new two-parter on ITV2.

Chris & Kem: Straight Outta Love Island will follow the two lads as they embrace life outside of the villa and set out on a musical journey of discovery, exploring the world of rap, grime and hip-hop.

Having already achieved their dreams of finding love, it’s time to turn their attention to their next affection as they hit the streets to meet the great and good of the rap music scene. Of course there’ll be special appearances from some of their Love Island counterparts along the way,

As they build to their first ever live performance, will they be able to pull off performing to a sell-out crowd?


The Last Post | BBC One, Sunday 1st October at 9pm

Set in the swinging sixties, The Last Post stars Jessie Buckley, Jessica Raine‎, Amanda Drew, Ben Miles and Stephen Campbell Moore alongside newcomer Jeremy Neumark-Jones.

Written by BAFTA winner Peter Moffat, The Last Post is based on childhood memories, his father’s career as an officer in the Royal Military Police and his mother’s struggle between being what the army required her to be and what she felt like being. The Last Post is a close up view of army life set in the heat, glamour and extreme danger of Aden in the 1960s.

Set in the shimmering heat of Aden (Yemen), the drama centres on a unit of Royal Military Police officers and their families. Their job is two-fold: half soldiers and half policemen who face constant insurgency and threat. Danger is everywhere. Hand grenades, mines and sniper attacks are a constant threat.


Red Dwarf XIIThursday 12th October at 9pm on Dave

The original cast of Red Dwarf, Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Craig Charles (Lister), Danny John-Jules (Cat) and Robert Llewellyn(Kryten) are back for a brand new series.

For the very first time, the rest of the crew discover just how it feels to be Kryten when they’re arrested by the Mechanoid Intergalactic Liberation Front. The Dwarfers come across a ship where criticism is illegal, and a space station where the crew have developed a cure for evil.

When all the machines on Red Dwarf go on strike Rimmer and Kryten hold a Presidential election, while The Cat faces an identity crisis like never before when he discovers he needs glasses. Lister discovers a simple update of the ship’s latest software could be a matter of life or death.

Finally, Rimmer decides to leave Red Dwarf in search of a parallel universe where he isn’t such a massive loser.
