British movie star Ray Winstone has launched a scathing attack on reality TV shows.

The King Arthur actor believes production companies take advantage of wannabe celebrities and fail to support them once the show's finished.

Winstone fumes, "My pet hate is all this reality stuff, Big Brother and that.

"What I find most annoying is that people come on to them shows and then, when it's over, they're dropped.

"Their whole life has changed for that 15 minutes of fame, but who's looking after them. It's the television companies behind it who really p*** me off."
