Do you love Love Island? Are you desperate for Desperate Housewives? Do you keep up with the Kardashians? Well... now you can step inside the television and become an actual real life reality star. Arrow Media, a London based production company, has just issued a casting call asking all British nationals living on the Palm Jumeirah to be a part of ITV's new documentary series.

While the name of the proposed series has not yet been released, we do know that it will be focused on the Palm and that the production agency is looking for individuals with "big personalities and interesting stories to tell."

We've reached out to the agency for an official statement, in the meantime, a poster has been distributed on a number of social platforms including British Mums in Dubai

The gig is specifically aimed at British expats, so unfortunately other nationalities can't apply.

But if you just read this and thought "Hey! I wanna be famous!" then chill out and don't have a diva moment just yet. MixFame, the region’s talent platform reckons they can make citizens of all nationalities famous.

Specialising in TV ads and presenting, the talent agency is looking to find the nation’s next big star and unlike some other agencies prior experience is not required.

If you’re rolling your eyes and wondering how starring in ads could lead to international stardom, just remember that Leonardo DiCaprio, Dakota Fanning and Brad Pitt all started out as campaign stars.

If you consider yourself more of a model than an actor or if the idea of a camera scares you, you’re in luck. MixFrame also has a number of services for aspiring models and presenters.

Now that you’re ready to “shine” like star, here’s how you can join the party…

Firstly, register here. When you register just remember to add a recent photo (no older than six months... so your senior school picture won't do!) of yourself.

Once you’ve added your details including body measurements, special skills (singing, dancing and languages), hobbies and contact details, you’ll successfully be a part of the MixFame family and database.

After that all you need to do is wait for someone to choose your portfolio – you’ll get an email notification when they do. If you want to up your chances of getting selected for TV roles and ads, co-founder Ally Khalil Iverson suggests that you add a short video of yourself to your profile (they need to know that you can act or have some star potential).

If you’re the competitive type, then you may want to register as a premium member because that way you’ll be able to see who has been shortlisted and who your potential competition is – we’re watching you girl with the curly hair and perfect smile, we’re watching you.
