The cast of MTV's latest reality TV show have dismissed comparisons with Towie and Geordie Shore.

The group claim the show isn't just about partying and getting drunk but about learning skills that could lead to jobs.

The eight students will be put through a series of beauty school master classes before being let loose on real customers.

The contestants were talking to Newsbeat's entertainment reporter Nesta McGregor.
