Reggie Yates’ hour-long BBC drama MAKE ME FAMOUS, with Sam Baker-Jones, takes a deep dive into reality television and the afterglow of fast fame, attempting to answer what happens to a reality star when their phone stops ringing.

It follows Billy, a beloved former contestant on a fictional constructed-reality show, focussing on his life one year on, but with flashbacks to his interview process to get onto the show.

“A year after the show has aired, while some of Billy’s co-stars’ careers are thriving, Billy struggles to balance the afterglow of fame, social media, and tabloid kiss & tells, and the resulting assumptions people have made about his character – forcing deep vulnerabilities to the surface.

“Can Billy escape the reputation that now precedes him?”

BBC Three’s Make Me Famous is now available on BBC iPlayer and will also be shown on BBC One at 9pm on Thursday 25th June.
