  New challenger to Osbournes TV crown
Updated 01 January 2003, 13.34
Chris Eubank
Yet another rival to The Osbournes hit TV show is coming to our screens, and this time it could go the distance.

The eccentric former boxer Chris Eubank has had cameras from Channel 5 in his house for the last month making a one-off show about his family.

Eubank is now more famous for his bizarre lifestyle than his skills in the ring, and telly bosses hope the show will be a knock-out in the ratings.

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne
Will The Eubanks be bigger than The Osbournes?
The colourful character is famous for wearing jodhpurs and driving a huge truck around Brighton and describes himself as a "Victorian dad".

The show will centre on Eubank's 2m home in Hove in Sussex, showing life with his wife Karron and four kids.

Eubank has been on reality TV before when he was in the first series of Celebrity Big Brother and a series of The Eubanks could be on the cards if the first show is a success.
