TV commissioners are a fickle bunch and the nation's surprising passion for the previously niche Olympic sport is bound to inspire various spinoffs of dubious quality. So to get ahead of the game, Reality Bites has pitched five possible follow-ups that could be taking over Saturday nights in the future.
The Only Way Is Wiggins
Cameras follow the sideburn-clad Tour de France champ, Sports Personality of the Year winner and Olympic legend as he lives his day to day life - pedalling around, hanging with Paul Weller, grooming his sideburns, more pedalling.
The cameras would follow Wiggo around the clock with every vajazzle replaced with trips to the barber for a sideburn trim and nights out at Sugar Hut swapped for sessions in a velodrome.
The Mo Factor
The search for Team GB's next great track and field superstar starts right here! Mo Farah trains wannabe Usain Bolts and Jess Ennis's of the future in three key areas. Mental strength. Physical strength. And their ability to do a Mobot on demand at any given occasion.
Rounds would include the 110m hurdles and the triple jump and would finish on a painful 10,000m run that would make the Gladiators Travelator look like a breeze.
Neigh! With Zara Phillips
Tally-ho! The most famous face of British equestrian brings horse jumping to Saturday nights. Celebs get to test their equine skills as they take on dressage, show jumping and eventing with the dashing royal Princess at their side.
Dean Gaffney falling off the saddle. Paul Danan mucking out the stables. One of the Chuckles Brothers taking on the obstacle course with style. The possibilities are endless.
Olympic gold medal winner in the ring, Nicola Adams picks a selection of D-list down on their luck celebs and trains them as boxers. Adams takes the famous faces under her wing for some serious sparring sessions and ends the day with a trip to her favourite eatery of choice - Nandos.
The prospect of Bobby Davro, Trevor and Simon, Katie Price and Toby Anstis knocking seven bells of silly out of each other is surely too good a prospect for a TV commissioner to turn down.
Strictly Come Trap Shooting
Peter Wilson - the easily forgotten sports shooting gold medal winner from London 2012 - brings some double-barrel action to primetime telly. What the event lacks in thrills is made up for in the danger factor as cast members from TOWIE and Made In Chelsea are let loose with each other on a shooting range.
