Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino has landed his own reality show.

The 'Jersey Shore' star has already begun filming scenes for his spin-off series, which will focus on the party animal's family life and his wild antics in the New Jersey suburbs.

TMZ is reporting Mike has rented a house during production which is right next door to the pad where his former co-stars' Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi and Jenni Farley filmed their own spin-off, 'Snooki & JWoww'.

Fans of 'Jersey Shore' are already familiar with Mike's younger sister Melissa, who memorably enjoyed a flirtation with housemate Vinny Guadagnino, and it is thought his older brothers Frank and Marc could also make an appearance.

Mike - who appeared on British reality show 'Celebrity Big Brother' in 2012 - checked into rehab for an addiction to prescription pain killers last year and has been on a mission to turn his life around and stay sober ever since.

He later confessed: ''I took a lot of things for granted and I was very blessed. I wasn't making the right decisions and before it got too worse or before I started to hurt others, maybe continue to hurt myself, I was able to turn around and fix myself and make a positive change that was needed.''

However, he hasn't given up his party lifestyle, so plenty of womanising and bar fights are to be expected.

Pauly D - real name Pauly Delvecchio - has also starred in his own TV show about his DJ career since 'Jersey Shore' ended, while Vinny has signed up to front his own talk show for MTV.
