Teen Mom UK is coming.

If, like us, you're pretty obsessed with the US version of the MTV show, then you'll want to keep your eyes peeled this autumn when a British version of the smash hit series comes to screens.

MTV UK announced today they're bringing the ground-breaking, access-all-areas documentary to our shores, with eight one-hour episodes to air in autumn 2016.

Farrah's the most famous star of the show.

The channel is looking for young mums and pregnant teenagers to take part, with the support of their families, and those interested can apply via this link.

MTV UK's Jill Offman said: "MTV UK has a great track record of re-versioning hit shows from our sister channel in the U.S. – we turned Jersey Shore into Geordie Shore and smashed ratings records in the process.

"We'll use this expertise to give Teen Mom a fresh lease of life, combined with a unique British twist, which we're confident will have massive appeal to local audiences."

Teen Mom fans will know the show is a spinoff from MTV's 16 & Pregnant, which followed pregnant US teenagers as they prepared for their children's births.

There have been 12 seasons of Teen Mom in the US so far, with the most recent series reaching peak viewing figures.

Arguably the most famous Teen Mom UK star to date is Farrah Abraham, who rose to fame in 16 & Pregnant, which followed her pregnancy with daughter Sophia, now six. Since then she's become a TV personality, most recently seen in last year's autumn Celebrity Big Brother.

Other familiar faces to come from the franchise include Jenelle Evans, Caitlynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, Amber Portwood, Maci Bookout and Leah Messer.
