Friends Jamie, Lindsay, Ashley and Grainne from Cabra in Dublin are among the box-watching besties.

All four ladies are self-confessed reality TV addicts. Sisters Lindsay and Ashley spent their childhood holidays with Jamie as their mums were best friends. After Grainne joined the gang aged 12 they became inseparable.

Other people set to feature on the series include Tallaght residents Szymon and Aga. Originally from Poland, the pair have been best friends since they met in college 16 years ago.

Aga moved to Ireland from Poland in 2004, having completed her masters degree in environmental protection science and went on to receive her PHD at UCD, while Szymon arrived in 2007 to celebrate Halloween.

He fell in love with the country and never left.

Viewers will also be introduced to the Grufferty family, from Co Kildare. Parents Laura and Des met 14 years ago when Des walked into his future wife's hair salon and left with her phone number.

The pair have four children and will be joined on the couch by their 12-year-old daughter, Danielle.
