Top reality TV apps.

Whether they’re your guilty pleasure, or you fancy yourself as a contestant, most of us love a good reality show.


And as the season for snuggling down on a Saturday night sets in, we’ve listed some of the best apps to help you make the most of your TV time.


X Factor UK

The X Factor UK - iPhone, Android (free)


The X Factor is back again with a brand new series, so let’s start with what’s arguably the world’s biggest and most talked-about singing contest in TV talent show history.


The official app lets you watch performances just minutes after they appear on TV, which is perfect for when you want to see the best bits again (and again), without hogging the remote.


It’s also great if you’re out and about. So, if you’re busy being a social butterfly on a Saturday night but don’t want to miss out on any of the action, download the app to keep you up-to-date wherever you are.


And, if you fancy yourself as the next Simon Cowell, you can also put your X Factor knowledge to the test with the fifth judge function. Here you can make predictions, rate performances, receive sneaky peeks into backstage gossip and feast your eyes on some of the behind-the-scenes photos. And of course, you can use the app to vote for your favourite act, for free.

Million pound drop

The Million Pound Drop - iPhone, Android (free)


Think you’ve got what it takes to win the million? Why not play alongside the live show using this official app and see how much dosh you can get your mitts on. What’s more, if you answer a few simple questions at the beginning of each game you’ll be in with the chance of getting a live mention from Davina herself.


If you’ve an iPhone and realise you just can’t wait until the next live show to play again, you also have the option to pay £1.49 and unlock the single player game. For this you’ll get to play The Million Pound Drop whenever you want. With over 800 questions, sound clips from the real show and the ability to compete with friends, you’ll be kept in suspense for hours.

Strictly Come Dancing

Strictly Come Dancing - iPhone (£1.49)


The sparkly dresses and glitter balls aren’t just limited to the big screen. Download the Strictly Come Dancing app and you’ll be bringing the glitz, glamour and glory of show time to your iPhone or iPad.


This app contains a fashion activity pack, sticker packs and the ability to create your own Strictly pictures to enjoy and share. Ever wondered what you’d look like doing the cha-cha with Artem or Ola? Now’s your chance.
