Season 2

Star Stories is a celebrity news gossip show that reveals the hottest lurrrve tips and the juiciest gossip the stars don't want published.

The show is a light-hearted look into the closely guarded world of celebrity, as the lives and loves of Hollywood actors and international pop stars get satirically reconstructed.

Star Stories returns for a second season of comic parodies of the world’s biggest stars.

Topics covered include everything from controversial religions to high-waisted trousers, and all the stories that the stars wanted to keep a secret are exposed in gloriously imaginative detail.

Through the twisted Star Stories filter we explore the comeback of pop phenomenon Take That - apparently their success was nothing to do with Robbie Williams at all.

Tom Cruise talks about Scientology and his first tender moments with Nicole Kidman, Simon Cowell muses upon his road to success and what happened when he hired Louis Walsh and the series wouldn’t be complete without Britney and her shaved head.

Sit back and see a different side to all those big celebrity stories. If the real life stories had you laughing...
