Awesome British Telly Shows You Just Have To Check Out

Updated on January 29, 2015

British television rocks and there are so many cool and entertaining British television shows. If we were to name and write about all of the British shows we like, we would be here for like a week! This is why we shortened up our list and have decided to include a few of the best British TV shows that everyone should watch. If you think there are some British shows that we should have mentioned here, then feel free to leave us a comment and let us know which show should have been discussed or at least mentioned here.

Four In A Bed

If you are not familiar with British television, then you're probably not familiar with the show Four In A Bed. This show features four contestants who run their own Bed & Breakfasts somewhere in the United Kingdom. The four owners take turns staying at one another's Bed And Breakfast. At the end of each guest's stay, they pay what they think their stay was worth, which means they can pay the normal rate for the room they stayed in, underpay or even overpay. At the end of the show, the owner who gets the most money wins the game.

Four In A Bed is quite entertaining and you get to see a lot of cool Bed And Breakfasts that you may end up wanting to stay at.

Come Dine With Me

Come Dine With Me is another British classic. It's a game show, but a unique one that is well-worth watching. This show features five people who are competing for a thousand pounds, so that's more than $1,000USD! They compete for the money by cooking dinner for one another. Each person hosts a dinner party on each weekday, and at the end of the week, the person with the most votes wins that week's Come Dine With Me. As for who decides who wins, the people competing do. They vote on the dinner when the night as concluded, and they score the dinner between a 1-10.


EastEnders is a British soap opera and a good one at that. Even if you don't like soaps or you're used to other soaps in other countries, you should give EastEnders a watch. We are a fan of soaps in general, but EastEnders is one of those types of soaps that brings things to the next level. Want to find out what that level is? Then go and checkout EastEnders for yourself. We are confident that you will absolutely love it.

Coronation Street

Coronation Street is another soap opera and it's one the same level as EastEnders, which means that Coronation Street is just awesome and you should watch this awesome British soap opera. And we may be wrong here but we think that Coronation Street is the longest running soap in the world! And we have a feeling it's just going to keep on going and going and going and not lose any steam when it comes to popularity.

Britain's Got Talent

Not all talent shows are created equal and Britain's Got Talent is one of the best British television shows around. Most countries have their version of this show (America's Got Talent, Australia's Got Talent and so forth) but it seems that Britain's Got Talent takes things to a whole new level. Let's not forget that Simon Cowell is usually a judge on the show and he is just awesome!


This show is great. It's a sitcom and it's filled with so much comedy that will have you laughing throughout the entire episode. Benidorm is about Brits who stay at a resort in Benidorm. The show centers around specific tourists and staff that works at the resort. This show features memorable characters, funny plot lines and much more. If you love comedy sitcoms, then you will love Benidorm.

Asides from the British shows previously discussed, there are other ones you should watch, and this includes:

  • Downtown Abbey
  • Emmerdale
  • The X-Factor
