The UK's latest reality show has just begun here in the UK. 12 people have been selected to go through intensive training with the Space Tourism Agency of Russia before a handful of them will be selected for the trip of a lifetime - a five-day mission orbiting the earth!
Or so they think!
The participants in Britain's biggest reality hoax may think they are going into space - but in reality they have never left the UK. The Russian military base is actually a disused airbase in Suffolk, while their journey into space will in fact be on a space simulator looking out at a giant IMAX style screen!
Will they fall for it? Well, with just a few days to go before blast off, they still believe that a few of them are heading into space.
The show began on Wednesday and is running over ten nights. The first few shows covers the selection and training process, before on Sunday the live space mission begins.
