Quiz: Can You Figure Out Which TLC Shows Are Real and Which Are Big Fat Extreme Fakes?


Sky has launched TLC today, unleashing a great flood of jaw-dropping lifestyle content that we have only ever heard mutterings of. From big names like Toddlers in Tiaras to niche content like Gypsy Sisters and Craft Wars, there’s no shortage of fake-sounding shows that have to be seen to be believed.
