Topping the list is none other than celebrity trophy wife Brynne Edelsten. The full cast is:

The program incited a social media backlash and prompted critics to unsheathe their claws after it made its debut in the UK.

Despite the backlash the show’s first episode has been described as a ratings winner after 5.5 million people tuned in. The program also achieved a peak audience of 6.3 million.

But the result did not stop the Daily Mail from asking if celebrity diving is TV’s “biggest belly-flop”. The same paper also said the show was “so bad it was good”.
