Channel 5 Orders Celebrity Couples Countdown Show


LONDON: STV Productions and GroupM Entertainment have been commissioned by Channel 5 to produce Ultimate Celebrity Power Couples ’16, which counts down the top 40 most powerful celebrity couples of the year.

Ultimate Celebrity Power Couples ’16 will spotlight such romantic pairs as Beyoncé and Jay Z, Kim and Kanye, Angelina and Brad, and Hillary and Bill. The couples have been ranked according to their reported wealth, media impact and political influence. The two-hour special will include interviews with a number of celebrities, comedians and showbiz insiders.

Liam Hamilton, deputy director of content and executive producer for STV, remarked: “One of the most interesting aspects of the show is the latest social media data that we’re using to compile the list. This wasn’t available in previous years and vividly reveals the media penetration of the most successful celebrity couples.”
