ITV's "Love Island UK" received the MTV Movie & TV Award for Best International Reality Series. The show faced some fierce competition from other big titles in the category such as "Acapulco Shore", "Geordie Shore", "Nailed It!" and "RuPaul’s Drag Race UK". "Love Island" is owned by ITV Studios and Motion Content Group and is distributed internationally by ITV Studios. The hit show has been commissioned in 21 territories ranging from Australia and the US to Spain and the Netherlands and many more.

On the other hand, the castle edition of "I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!" will be adapted in Greece by Antenna TV.  The show will be produced in a scouted castle in Poland which has been turned into a production hub for more territories who wish to come in.



The Greek castle version will be produced by Silverline Media Productions and is expected to air on Antenna in 2022.  Maarten Meijs, President at Global Entertainment, ITV Studios says “The castle version of 'I Am A Celebrity in Wales' was the biggest show of 2020, boasting huge viewership for its first edition filmed in the UK. The series has served as an inspiration for our international team as well as our clients. On the back of this success we have sourced an alternative castle location which we have found in Poland. The hub offers a complete package for broadcasters around the world to produce their own version, within reach of most budgets: just fly in, plug and play. Our clients benefit from the infrastructure, learnings and experiences we already have. The game playbook is ready. We are thrilled to have Greece as the first country to set up camp in the castle in Poland."  

Stella Litou, General Manager at Antenna TV says, “Antenna TV is the home of the biggest entertainment  formats and we are thrilled to be introducing 'I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!' to the Greek audience. Our amazing team, on and off air, can’t wait to offer an amazing first season that will set new boundaries to prime time entertainment for the whole market, aiming to make it the most popular television brand for years to come in our territory.”
