Stacey Solomon, Alicia Douvall and Ian H Watkins for Living’s Party Wars!

LIVING have today announced a new reality series, Party Wars.

In each episode viewers will have front row, unedited access to the parties of four contestants who agree to attend and judge each other’s party. The winner and their three friends will then be whisked away by helicopter to holiday of a lifetime. But how do you measure a good party? And what happens when the inevitable culture, class and personality clashes happen. Well, LIVING invites you to find out and watch the best parties in the UK without having to leaving the comfort of your home to enjoy them.

Each party will be scrutinised and judged by three categories – Host with the Most, Rate My Mates and Night to Remember – with each category being marked out of 10 by each contestant, and with a final score out of 30. Five of the episodes will have an added twist to the format with a celebrity replacing one of the regular contestants. Celebrities to feature include X-Factor finalist Stacey Solomon, socialite Lady Victoria Hervey, glamour model Alicia Douvall, The Apprentice contestant and posh boy entrepreneur Raef Bjayou, and former Steps band member Ian H Watkins.

An impressive array of party themes will be covered in the series and our celebrities will be competing against contestants who have planned the most lavish and outlandish events, including a pole dancing heaven and hell party, a boozy Magaluf themed house party and a racy 1940s Burlesque Marilyn Monroe event.

LIVING TV Group’s Head of Commissioning Mark Sammon said: “After the phenomenal success of Four Weddings we wanted to explore other subjects which would fit in with the winning format. Parties were the obvious route to go down, as like weddings, everyone has an opinion on parties whether they’re a guest or watching from home.”

Executive Producer of Party Wars, Michael Kelpie added: “Four Weddings has been a tremendous success but a wedding is only one of the important events in our lives that we celebrate with a big party. On Party Wars, you’ll be hooked by the extraordinary, unique, imaginative and outrageous party hosts, as they attend and judge each other’s milestone parties. If you thought Four Weddings was good, hold on to your hat ‘cos Party Wars is a whole new game!”.
