Shipwrecked is BACK with a new series and a new look

Shipwrecked will be returning to E4 for a brand new series, it’s been confirmed.


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

It’ll seven years since the show was last on TV, having spent over a decade on and off air up until 2012.

Filming this summer, the sun-kissed reality series will be re-imagined for 2018 with a new generation of islanders setting up camp on two rival islands: Shark Island and Tiger Island.

E4 say that the two tribes will battle it out to win over new arrivals, with the largest tribe at the end of the life-changing adventure being crowned as winners of the ultimate popularity contest in paradise.

Both tribes must use their creativity and skill to make their camp the biggest and best, and this time the islands will hold secrets, hidden treasures and tempting traps that could change the islanders’ winning hopes.

Radio DJ and recent Strictly Come Dancing star Vick Hope will host the series.

“I’m chuffed to be voicing the all new series of Shipwrecked,” Vick said. “There are some amazing characters, epic bombshells and lovely waves of nostalgia ahead.”

The comeback series will run for 15 episodes and air on E4.


Neale Simpson, Executive Producer, Fizz, commented: “These incredible islands are waiting to welcome the next generation of Tigers and Sharks. Shipwrecked has always been known for its richly diverse and remarkable characters and we can’t wait to meet the new islanders bringing hedonism, heroism, heart, and hilarity to our paradise island adventure.”

Abigail Adams, Executive Producer, Motion Content Group added: “We’re delighted to be working alongside Fizz and E4 in bringing back this well-loved brand and to welcome a new generation of paradise castaways to this exciting, supercharged series of Shipwrecked.”
