Here's a round up of the cast on new Channel 4 reality show Shipmates - plus their Instagram usernames!

Across five episodes, two groups of friends board one of the most luxurious cruise ships in the world for a glamorous competition.

For five days they join 1500 party animals stopping off at the Med's biggest party destinations of Cannes, Ibiza, Palma and Barcelona.

The week-long popularity contest will see the group try to convince the other party-goers to vote for them in a week-long popularity contest.

However they aren't all.

Also on board are secret stowaways the players thought they'd left at home. Each day the rivals can choose a stowaway to send into the opposition to cause maximum disruption.

When does Shipmates air?

Shipmates begins on Friday, July 5 at 11:05PM on Channel 4.

In tonight's first episode, a holiday hook-up causes an awkward situation, and a work colleague in need of babysitting dampens the party spirit. As the ship sails towards the French Riviera, the teams and their stowaways gather for the first deck game, competing to win a fantastic upgrade experience when they hit Cannes.

There are five episodes airing weekly.

You can watch episodes online and catch up via the All4 Player.
