Endemol has teamed up with an international space programme to establish a human colony on Mars.

The company's Darlow Smithson Productions subsidiary will work with Mars One, which trains astronauts on the future project.

Dsp aim to produce a "worldwide TV event" focusing on candidates as they get ready for the mission.

Endemol and Mars One have claimed that human colonies on Mars can be completed, but that there would be no return trip to Earth.

The project will include 705 candidates chosen from over 200,000 applicants, who have applied to live the rest of their lives on Mars.

They will be tested using an intense programme run by scientists and astronauts.

Astronauts: Living in Space – TV review

It's extraordinarily brilliant, but I still want to know how real astronauts go to the loo and whether they have Skype sex

Wow, Astronauts: Living in Space (Channel 4) is like Gravity, only real. Well, Gravity before the debris hits. And with real-life astronauts Koichi, Mike and Rick in the Sandra and George roles. So a little less glam, less A-list.

They're in the International Space Station, orbiting 240 miles above the earth at 17,500mph. It's both extraordinarily brilliant and also a tiny bit frustrating.

How so? Well, it's extraordinarily brilliant because of where they are, and how they are there, and why they are there, living for six months somewhere properly different. It's "a bit like camping", says Koichi. Nothing like any of the camping I've ever done, it's not. (Immediately cancels all future holidays and starts saving for space tourism. Is Branson really the only option, or will there

Watch: What '32' Is Really Like

If the kids you spend most of your time with would be more likely to belt out a song by Tim and the Space Cadets called "2nd Grade Show" than Taylor Swift's hit "22," then this is the parody for you. Space Cadets front man, Tim Kubart, has taken on an alter-ego called Tambourine Guy to make parody videos that aren't for little children, but for the people who are raising them. Based on this first release, we feel pretty good about the switch.

No, Kubart isn't the first to remake Swift's bubblegum hit. Fuse TV's "32" went completely viral earlier this month, for one. Their parody, however, centered on the single city-dwelling 32-year-old who has "tiny little dinner parties," "a cat" and "a dentist, maybe." The stars in Kubart's clip are markedly parental ("Yeaaah, we're mommies and daddies and we're exhausted by the middle of the day") and there is

Hotel Gb: checking out Channel 4's reality show

The week-long reality show is a jumbled mess of ideas and personalities. Will anybody, apart from Mary Portas, emerge with their reputation intact?

It may only be early October, but it's probably safe to call Hotel Gb the weirdest television series of the year. While its competitors have been busy ploughing funds into scripted television – drama in the case of ITV and the BBC, comedy in the case of Sky – Channel 4 has decided that it badly needs to invest in the kind of celebrity reality show that people haven't really enjoyed watching for five years.

If you haven't seen the opening two episodes, then Hotel Gb is best described as The Hotel, but with celebrities. Or Big Brother, but about a hotel. Or The Apprentice, but with more Gok Wan. Or Carry On Camping, but with Kim Woodburn instead of Barbara Windsor. Or Hell's Kitchen, but with Paddy McGuinness instead of any discernible point.

'The Hunger Games' Snags Josh Hutcherson And Liam Hemsworth In Today's Dailies

'The Hunger Games' Snags Josh Hutcherson And Liam Hemsworth In Today's Dailies
The hunt for Gale and Peeta is over. After weeks of speculation, Lionsgate has announced that Liam Hemsworth ("The Last Song") and Josh Hutcherson ("The Kids Are All Right") are heading for the big screen version of Suzanne Collins' insanely addictive series "The Hunger Games" to play male leads Gale Hawthorne and Peeta Mellark respectively, reports Hollywood Crush.

Hemsworth and Hutcherson join Oscar-nominee Jennifer Lawrence, who was chosen to play "Hunger Games" heroine Katniss Everdeen last month. Both actors expressed interest in the highly anticipated project, which will be directed by Gary Ross. Hutcherson disclosed his feelings on the character, saying: "The character is so much who I am — self deprecating, a people person. And he’d be such a great character to play!"

Meanwhile, back in January, Hemsworth had hinted to MTV that he could very well be taking on the role of the stoic, first true love of Katniss,
