From various corners of the UK, 18 contestants find themselves stranded in an exotic paradise, split into two competitive tribes. They will go head-to-head in assorted tests of wit and endurance, vying for either rewards or immunity.

The famed Tribal Council sees contestants voted off step by step. As tribes merge, the competition intensifies, narrowing down to a one-on-one showdown.

In the end, only one cab earn the title of Sole Survivor.

What’s the Survivor UK prize money?

The winner of Survivor won’t just take home bragging rights, they’ll also pocket a cool £100,000 cash in prize money.
