Michael Barrymore is to star in a new reality show - back on our screens for the first time in 3 years.
Canadian Cable channel ZXR Yukon have signed the star for a series of 13 programmes aimed at raising his profile at home and abroad. The programmes will at first only be broadcast to the Innuit population of the Northwest territories (population 8), but if successful will also be syndicated to Greenland and Iceland.

The multi-dollar deal is being kept secret at the moment, but is believed to involve the openly gay Barrymore getting into "hilarious" mishaps learning the Innuit way of life - skinning seals, cutting ice blocks and fishing.
His agent, Mohammed Cohen, claimed when contacted that he hadn't spoken to Barrymore for over a year.
