Channel 5 has revealed details of its new reality series The Candy Bar.

The show will follow the lives and loves of a group of young lesbians who are working to get London's Candy Bar ready for its relaunch following a recent refurbishment.

Among the stars of the show are former Big Brother housemate Shabby Katchadourian. Having struggled to cope with her newfound fame, the 24-year-old is now "hell bent" on achieving success while also finding love and security.

The series will feature owner Gary Henshaw, locally known for his portfolio of gay clubs in central London. Having only recently acquired the Candy Bar, Henshaw is on hand to keep things calm as chaos threatens to overrun the club's relaunch.

The six hour-long episodes will also introduce viewers to 21-year-old wannabe model and pole dancer Dannii Oriso, and her longtime girlfriend Lucy - who works as a bouncer at the Candy Bar. Meanwhile, DJ Lil Jo will be seen juggling her drama course with trying to find love and getting back on the decks in the club.

Andrew O'Connell, Channel 5's Head of Factual said: "With this brand new commission we aim to highlight a world that has had very little screen presence in the past and we want to bring a glimpse of their lives straight into the homes of our viewers."

The Candy Bar will be broadcast on Channel 5 in the spring.
