Living the Dream

This six-part series follows a British family, the Pembertons – husband Mal, wife Jen and their two teenage kids, Tina and Freddie – who decide it's time to leave rainy England and move to the sunshine state of Florida.

Mal's bought an RV Park with plans for a booming family-run business, but it soon turns out that they are not going to be living the dream they hoped.

Before they've even settled in, Mal discovers that the park is home to a group of eccentric residents who are not exactly thrilled to meet their new owners.

Jen has to learn how to survive American suburbia and the kids have to navigate a US high school.

With culture clashes aplenty, life in Britain soon seems even further away than they'd thought it would.

But with the support of each other and their crazy new friends, they begin to learn how to live the American dream.

Come Dine with Me UK 12

Five strangers come together to wine, dine and entertain each other in the hopes of taking home the big cash prize at the end of the week.

In the Season 12 premiere: In north Surrey the first host, 39-year-old planning enforcement officer Becky, is joined by Petrina, Rob, Shoba and Giovanni.

Do her crispy croutons and lamb shank stew impress?

On the second night, Shoba is serving an Indian menu. The guests are less than impressed with the frozen fish curry; can belly dancing, Bollywood-style, save the day?

31-year-old drum tutor Rob is hoping his Thai-tastic menu will impress his guests and snare him the prize, as well as impressing the object of his affections, Petrina.

49-year-old Petrina hopes her experience entertaining on cruise ships gives her the edge. Or will it be her dessert: 'Petrina's Salted Caramel Chocolate Crunch Surprise'?

The final night in north Surrey is hosted by Giovanni, who wants to fly the flag for Sicily with family-inspired recipes. But a tagliatelle tragedy leaves him with Parmesan on his face.

Hey Timone - so yeah, Billions was SUPPOSED to start, but didn't. It's going to air in January instead. When we enquired, this was the channel's response:

We had to cancel it because we were having downloading problems and the material was not arriving on time, so they decided to wait until all the material is here in the building.
