10,000 BC: Meet contestants on Channel 5's new reality series

10,000BC Channel 5 cast revealed

Here's a look at all of the contestants taking part in Channel 5's new reality series 10,000 BC.

It's hard enough for most of us to go without wi-fi for more than 15 minutes, but this five part series will see contestants on this one-of-a-kind show have to suffer much worse than that.

10,000 BC will see hopefuls stripped of all their modern gadgets and conveniences, then forced to hunt for their own food and dig their own toilets, as they live like our Stone Age ancestors.

Their mission: to survive eight weeks in the wilderness existing only on what they can hunt, forage and make. The aim: to find out what ten thousand years of evolution has given us and what it has taken away.

As they come face to face with hunger, sickness and team mates doing the unthinkable, it turns into a race for survival. Out of the twenty who started, how many will make it to the finish line? How long before they all drop like flies?

10,000BC airs on Channel 5 Mondays and Tuesdays at 10pm, from 2nd February.10,000 BC: CAROLINE MORTIMER
