The mother of all reality TV shows returns on 28 June with  the one and only ringmaster, Jeff Probst. This time around the most interesting Survivor tribe members take on the fans of the game. The new series is set on the islands of Micronesia and that ­nasty but lovable , self-proclaimed best player of ­Survior Johnny Fairplay is back! Good times ahead!

Keeping up with the Kardashians

E! Entertainment

Come on, admit it, you know your Sunday ­afternoons are incomplete without a Kardashians marathon. Ridiculous, strange and completely insane  (and that’s just referring to Bruce) this reality show is   unmissable. While fans wait for the new season to begin we’ll just have to settle for a season of Kourtney and Khloe take Miami.

Kimora Lee Simmons: Life in the Fab Lane

The Style Network
Starts 5 July

It’s crazy times in the Simmons home. The OTT mansion?with?the gold plated toilet is enough to keep anyone glued to the TV. And then there are those Kimora Lee-isms that are priceless: “I am a normal mother when it boils down to it,  I can be a soccer mom ... no wait we have a driver and I could never let my kids carpool ‘cos that’s gross!”

So you think you can  dance
Starts 4 July

Acrobatics, samba moves and hip-hop dancers looking like they’re about to break a leg, what more could you ask for in reality TV drama? An all new season of the South African version will hit screens with Sade ­Gilbereti. With last year’s top 10 opening the World Cup ceremony its proof we’ve got real talent on our hands.

Amazing Race

Sony Entertainment
Continuing series

Jetting off from one end of the world to the other, ­annoying partners and ­cryptic clues is the name of the game in this adrenaline pumping show. Presenter Phile Kehogan is always cool, calm, and collected no matter what the situation is. He brings a nice balance to the show and of course the fact that it’s produced by Jerry Bruckheimer helps too.
