Multimillion dollar homes, LA lifestyle, model type real-estate agents and lot's of drama. That's the basis for Selling Sunset, and it's easy to see why it's so incredibly popular. Netflix has seasons 1-3, but if you're like us and that's a day's watch, you'll be happy to know the series has been renewed for a 4th and 5th season. The TV series is based on the high-end real estate brokerage The Oppenheim Group - following the real estate agents around in both their professional and personal lives. All we can say is if you're looking for a super entertaining and easy watch - then this has your name on it.

This series follows the fab five's adventures as they help people be the best version they can be - giving them a full makeover in all sectors of their life. Each one of the men will help the individual in a specific sector, so Anthony is cooking, Tan is wardrobe, Jonathan is grooming, Karamo is in charge of culture and Bobby, who has the biggest job of them all, focusing on the interior design.

Sad about the end of Ru Paul's Drag Race? Then worry not dear readers, because Ru is giving much-loved contestants from past seasons the chance to come back and earn Rudemption with the hotly anticipated UK vs The World.

According to reports, similar to the American all-stars version (Katya was robbed!) previous queens will return to fight it out for the crown to become the next drag superstar, with a mini and main challenge every week, from sewing to acting. And with the franchise now getting bigger -by what feels like the second - this time the queens will be coming from all over the globe.

The bad news is no official date has been confirmed yet, though rumours suggest that filming is already complete. What we do know is it will be shown on BBC’s iPlayer and possibly BBC Three when the channel returns to TV screens next year. BBC have already released artwork for the show (that you can see below) which makes us think we shouldn’t have to wait too long.
