Make Me Famous cast and start date from new BBC Three drama

Make Me Famous is coming to BBC Three – who’s on the cast and when does it start?


Make Me Famous is a one-off drama written by Reggie Yates which explores the impact and consequences of fast fame on reality TV contestants.

A synopsis teases: “When Billy succeeds in impressing the producers of a fictional constructed-reality show, he believes his life is set to change forever.

“A year after the show has aired, while some of Billy’s co-stars’ careers are thriving, Billy struggles to balance the afterglow of fame, social media and tabloid kiss & tells, and the resulting assumptions people have made about his character – forcing deep vulnerabilities to the surface.

“Can Billy escape the reputation that now precedes him?”
