CATFISH UK SET TO RETURN TO MTV FOR SECOND SERIES

Julie Adenuga and Oobah Butler are set to return to MTV for a second series of Catfish UK, following the first series which aired earlier this year.



The series sees people who suspect their online relationship is too good to be true and want help discovering the real identity of their suitor. The US version has aired more than 150 episodes since 2012.



To apply for the second series, email CatfishUK@ViacomStudiosUK.com.


Commenting on the first series, Oobah Butler said: "It’s wild to me that the person who learned about the internet and deception by watching Catfish with his five brothers and sisters gets to be a part of its latest chapter. We live in a moment where everybody’s lives have moved online...



"I can’t wait to travel around the country, meet people, and use the tools I’ve developed making documentaries, to help them and better understand what it is about society that drives people to feel so inadequate that they cannot be themselves."


Julie Adenuga said: "As someone who has spent the most part of my career in the bubble of music and entertainment, Catfish UK is my first chance to connect with people in a completely different way, which is really exciting for me. The show is about vulnerability, empathy… and drama."



Catfish UK is available on MTV.
