What is Shipmates?

In Shipmates, two groups of friends go head to head in ‘the ultimate popularity contest’.

For five days they join 1500 party animals stopping off at the Med’s biggest party destinations of Cannes, Ibiza, Palma and Barcelona. The aim is to convince the other party-goers to vote for them in a week-long popularity contest.

At the end, the group that gets the most votes will win a luxury holiday to beautiful Bali.


In the first episode tonight, as one team edges ahead, cracks in friendship groups begin to show, and when team tactics turn to flirting, one ex-flame is left all at sea. Stormy waters lie ahead…

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