TV Betting Odds

Whether its Eurovision betting, Britain’s Got Talent odds, the latest Love Island news, or speculation about the line-up for the next series of I’m A Celebrity, the United Kingdom loves reality television, and also loves having a bet on such reality TV shows.

Reality television came to prominence in the UK around 20 years ago, largely thanks to the success of programmes such as Big Brother.


The mix of competition and drama, either by a judging panel or the viewers of a particular show, grips millions of viewers every year – even when a particular show (such as Great British Bake Off or The Apprentice) isn’t even being broadcast live.


We’ve got the latest betting news here at freetips.com, along with information on all major current and upcoming reality TV shows in the UK…

Great British Bake Off

The Great British Bake Off 2021 is scheduled to take place next Autumn.

Expect the hit Channel 4 show to return around mid-September.

Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith are likely to be back for Bake Off 2021, while Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas may once again present the show.

I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!

I'm A Celebrity has been one of ITV’s most-watched shows ever since it first aired in 2002.

Around 10 million viewers turned in to see the I'm A Celebrity 2020 result, with Giovanna Fletcher being crowned the winner of the last series, which took place in Wales rather than Australia due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Details of the 2021 edition of I'm A Celeb… are yet to be confirmed, although the show is likely to start in mid-November and run for around three weeks.

Love Island

Love Island is set to return in 2021. Further details are yet to be revealed, but the next series is expected to once again every night on ITV2 (bar Saturdays), with Laura Whitmore the host.

Strictly Come Dancing

Strictly has been a smash-hit for BBC since first airing in 2004, and Strictly Come Dancing 2021 will start later this year on BBC One in the United Kingdom.

Strictly is likely to be hosted once again by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman. We'll have further details later in the year.

Bill Bailey was the surprise winner of Strictly 2020 after impressing the judges - and the nation - before Christmas.

The Apprentice

Who will be Lord Sugar’s next apprentice? It’s yet to be confirmed by the BBC, but after being scrapped in 2020 due to the pandemic, we expect The Apprentice 2021 to be back on our screens on BBC1 before the Autumn.

Expect Alan Sugar to once again by flanked by Karren Brady and Claude Littner for The Apprentice later this year.

X Factor

Once a ‘must-watch’ show for viewers on a Saturday night, X Factor has been facing low ratings in recent years, but ITV will keep it on the air again in 2021. Prior to the 2020 series being scrapped as a result of the pandemic, Simon Cowell and show producers had promised big changes after a bizarre spin-off in 2019.

X Factor betting odds will be available ahead of the show’s return in 2021. We’ll have more X Factor news available in the coming weeks and months!
