ITV2 and the UK will be playing host to the ultimate all-American It girl Paris Hilton in the brand new and exclusive series Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend.

Paris Hilton has jetted into the UK with one mission: to find herself a British best friend.

Paris is never far from a whole host of people wanting to be her new best friend as she sashays from a red carpet event to fashion shows and parties. It can be a lonely life jetting the world in the blinding glare of the media spotlight, and it’s difficult to meet new friends.

In this 8-part series, Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend will follow the captivating Miss Hilton in the UK for an intensive search for a new friend she can depend on. Providing viewers with a candid insight into her manic world, they will also be privy to the true girl behind the media image through unprecedented exclusive access.

Paris says: “I’ve met all my potential British best friends and I’m so excited. This is going to be a wild ride that I’ll never forget. I love the Brits. Some of them are a little bit cheeky but it’s going to make for great television.”

Will the contestants have the energy to keep up with Paris’ dizzying schedule? Will they have the looks and style to effortlessly accompany Miss Hilton down the red carpet, or will they be hopelessly out of their depth? And will they really be genuine friends to Paris?

The ambitious wannabes will be sharing a house and will gradually be eliminated by Paris until one of them will be inaugurated as Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend.
