A first look at the new series of Shipwrecked has been unveiled this week.

The reality show, which first aired in 2000, sees a batch of castaways left on a deserted island.

It's been seven years since the series was last on TV, having spent over a decade on and off air up until 2012.

Now it's set for a return to E4 in 2019, with a first look trailer revealed today.

The new series is called 'Battle Of The Islands' and features a new format.

It will see a batch of adventurous young castaways competing in the ultimate popularity contest on two uninhabited paradise islands in the South Pacific.

The two tribes – Sharks and Tigers – will battle it out to win over new arrivals to their respective islands, with a £50k prize fund at stake for the largest tribe at the end of the competition.

Broadcaster and presenter Vick Hope will be the voice of the all-new series of Shipwrecked, which will air for 15 episodes next year.

Vick said: “I’m chuffed to be voicing the all new series of Shipwrecked. I was such a fan of the show back in the day on T4, and my friends and I would be so invested in all the tribal twists and turns on Shark and Tiger Island, so it’s a real honour to get to have the first sneak peek at winter’s hottest reality show.

"There are some amazing characters, epic bombshells and lovely waves of nostalgia ahead.”

Karl Warner, Controller of E4 added: “Shipwrecked changed the game, and we’re very excited about the new series that confidently shakes up reality TV once again.

"Thanks to the amazing creative team behind the camera, a diverse cast of characters and the brilliant talents of Vick Hope, the new series has all the ingredients for a fresh blast of sunshine and surprises to kick off a hugely exciting year ahead on E4.”

Shipwrecked will air on E4 in early 2019.
