Reality TV contestants spent a year in the middle of nowhere, unaware that their show had been cancelled

Contestants of the reality TV show 'Eden' have just returned from a year in the wilderness, only to discover that the series hasn't been aired for eight months.

Last 18 June, Channel 4 broadcast the first episode of Eden, a reality show in which contestants were challenged to spend a year cut-off from civilisation in a remote area of Scotland to try to build their own community.

In March 2016, 23 young people said goodbye to modern society and ventured into the Highlands. The ten participants who made it to the end must now be feeling both bewildered and just a little bit peeved.

After 12 months scraping a living in the middle of nowhere, contestants have just discovered that the series hasn't been aired since last August.

In November, people were already commenting on Twitter that the contestants were sure missing out on a lot.

Brexit, Trump, all those celebrity deaths... they knew nothing about any of that. And what's more, all the things the contestants hoped they'd get after their year in the wild – fame, interviews, book offers – none of that has happened. Nobody remembers their faces. Nobody cares about their TV show.

Channel 4 has promised that it will broadcast the programme again soon. And there are even rumours that this whole story is a marketing ploy to generate public interest in the show's relaunch.
