Here's a first look at ITV2's new reality show Survival Of The Fittest.

The South African savannah will be the backdrop to a new ITV2 entertainment show launching this weekend.

Survival of the Fittest will see a group of young, hot singles living together under the searing sun as they take part in the ultimate battle of the sexes, in order to win a big cash prize.

A team of Girls and a team of Boys will battle it out in a series of stunning physical and mental challenges to determine which sex has the upper hand, while romantic dates will test their loyalties to the limit.

Will the girls put sisters before misters and will the boys choose mates over dates? Or will the temptation be too much and they end up in bed with the enemy?

Hosted by Laura Whitmore and from the makers of Love Island, this brand new stripped entertainment series will give viewers the power to decide who stays in the competition, who goes home, and which sex ultimately comes out on top.

In this video, host Laura Whitmore gives us a lowdown on the series including a tour around the South African lodge which will be home to the contestants.

Laura said: "Survival of the Fittest is the ultimate battle of the sexes. From the makers of Love Island and I’m A Celeb, it’s a brand new format and there hasn’t been a show quite like this on TV.

"It is the perfect time of year for the show to be on because we are set under the South African sun in the savannah, so while it’s miserable weather in the UK, you can watch some lovely people in some glorious surroundings."

She continued: "The really interesting thing is the battle of the sexes element – we are going to challenge and pit our contestants against each other in two teams, Boys and Girls.

"The contestants are all single so could they be distracted along the way?

"You can expect drama, excitement, rivalry and humour... and hopefully a bit of romance as they are all single!"

"Obviously I’ll be rooting for the Girls! And we have Brennan Reece voicing the show to represent for the Boys. But I’m really intrigued to see what happens," added Laura.

Survival Of The Fittest airs from 9PM on Sunday night (February 11) on ITV2.
