No doubt you've seen all of those adverts for Channel 4's new show Eden but just what is it about?

Asking 'if we could start again?', cryptic ads for the new show have been EVERYWHERE from TV to magazines, billboards to YouTube.

Eden will follow a group of 23 Brits who are dumped in the remote Scottish wilderness and challenged with building a life for themselves and creating a brand new society from scratch.

It sounds a LOT like BBC's Castaway 2000, which had a similar format and was also set in Scotland.

Participants on Eden come from a variety of backgrounds and bring with them a mix of skills, from a doctor to a chef.

Isolated from the rest of the world, the group will be provided with some basics to kick start their experience but after that they're on the own.

From building shelter and growing food to deciding on rules and laws, everything must begin again.

Channel 4 say: "The series aims to challenge everything about modern living, raising questions about what we need to be happy, what we want from our communities and how we are all influenced by society as a whole."

As for when Eden starts, no exact launch date has been confirmed yet but we know it'll begin some time in July.
