The truth lies just a little closer to home

The latest reality TV show to grace our screens, Exiles, debuts on Thursday. It follows the trials of six Irish men and women in Vancouver, Canada who, according to the pre-publicity, have emigrated there to start a new life.

Which is of course all well and good, except that at least two of those six are to be seen knocking around Dublin these days, with current Made in Chelsea star Nicola Hughes (inset) being the most high-profile, and a cynic might suggest that it was actually a case of "six Irish people go to Vancouver to film a TV show, then come home".

The actors may have been a long way from home - but RTE's description of the show is a long way detached from the truth.
