Everyone's favourite guilty pleasure has been picked up by broadcasting networks in both Nigeria and Spain, with Twitter already going crazy after hearing the "non-serious but still chaotic" news.

Rumours of the news originally circulated on social media, but a producer from the upcoming show has now confirmed to TheMetro.co.uk that the first season of the Nigerian version will be broadcast on TVC for terrestrial and 9 Vision Media for digital.
