    This week it's the Bachelor of Buckingham Palace.

    This is the inside story of one of the world’s most bizarre and ballsy reality dating shows. In early 2013 a group of twelve unsuspecting American women were flown to a sumptuous Elizabethan estate in the heart of the Berkshire countryside, where they competed for a chance to win the affections of one of the world’s most eligible bachelors. “Oh my god,” shouts one of the contestants as their suitor arrives by helicopter, “That’s Prince Harry!”. The Bachelor Of Buckingham Palace tells the gripping, entertaining and unsettling story of how Fox duped a group of women into believing they were dating a man who was fifth in the line to the British throne.
