As another year in reality telly comes to end, we've taken a look back at our top five stories from the shows we cover.

We've gone over our stats here at TellyMix towers and discovered just which articles you lot have been reading over the past twelve months, and there were some big stories that quite a few people were all interested in.

Daley Ojuederie gets the boot from Big Brother

It's just as unsurprising as it is unfortunate to see this story at Number one: It's Daley Ojuederie's ejection from the Big Brother house. The pro boxer was kicked out by bosses after a drunken row with fellow housemate Hazel O'Sullivan turned nasty, with the model telling Big Brother she felt threatened by Daley's behaviour. Even with the series long finished, Daley's still not out of the woods just yet following a police investigation, tweeting in November: "Big Brother was ages ago but just now I get a phone call from my solicitor who haven't spoke to in ages saying police might still charge me"

Charlotte Crosby flashes on Celebrity Big Brother

A much more fun to side to the Channel 5 show is shown in our second top story of 2013, and it's Charlotte Crosby's boobs. The Geordie Shore star won the latest Celebrity series in the summer after this display in the house that saw her fellow housemates covering their eyes.


Rebecca Adlington is under fire for skipping trials

Everyone wanted to know just why Rebecca Adlington was avoiding so many trials on I'm A Celebrity 2013, and even now we don't know what was happening behind the scenes, except that it definitely isn't because she's pregnant. The Olympian said after leaving camp: "I didn’t know what the trials were, I had no control over them, you do the medical at the start and all you get told is that you can’t do them.

“It’s definitely nothing serious and nothing to worry about. Don’t panic. I am definitely not pregnant. I wouldn’t be going in the jungle if I was.”

Simon Cowell gets egged

Ratings grabbing PR stunt or not, Simon Cowell's egging during the final of Britain's Got Talent this summer will remain a reality telly highlight. No one saw it coming, as a member of the on stage orchestra put down her cello to lob a box of fresh eggs at the judging panel while a puzzled Richard and Adam did their best to continue to sing on.


Ola Jordan and Karen Hauer's backstage bust up

Our final top story of this year was the backstage bust up between Strictly pros Karen Hauer and Ola Jordan. The pair clashed in rehearsals after Karen apparently branded Ola a "rubbish dancer". There were claims of bullying between the professionals behind the scenes, but Karen insisted recently: “Really, it was nothing. I didn’t like how it was reported that I was bullying Ola, which just didn’t happen."
