Reality TV contestants re-emerge after a year to learn about Brexit, Trump

Published: Updated:

Cut off from reality, a group of TV contestants who spent a year in the wilderness will re-emerge to find that Donald Trump is US president, Britain is about to leave the EU and Leicester won the Premier League.

The contestants who took part in a UK TV show Eden will have to come to terms with what has taken place in 2016.

The show first aired in July last year with 23 strangers trying to survive in the Highlands of Scotland with no technology or modern tools for one year.

However, according to British media the show only aired for four episodes, as viewing figures dropped from 1.7 million to 800,000. Additionally 13 contestants reportedly dropped out.

As a result, the show was taken off air, but the remaining contestants were not informed that their life in the wilderness was not broadcasted.
