Shipwrecked Is Back And On The Lookout For New Contestants

Reality show Shipwrecked is back and bosses are on the lookout for sexy singles to audition for the chance to have the 'experience of a lifetime' and potentially win a tonne of cash at the end of it all.

Makers of the hit E4 programme are inviting 18-30-year-olds to battle it out as castaways in the original popularity contest.

Despite not being on our televisions for seven years, producers are expecting a fresh band of young people eager to impress viewers.

Executive producer Neale Simpson told The Sun: 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."

A TV insider told the publication: "Lots of people have fond memories of watching Shipwrecked in their youth and dreaming about joining the fun in paradise.

"Now Channel 4 have decided to give millennials the same experience, after Love Island proved sun-kissed hunks and beauties frolicking in a tropical setting can result in huge ratings.

"While there have been similar shows recently, like The Island and Mission Survive, they are all about making people miserable by forcing them to fight for their lives in the wild.

"On Shipwrecked, the biggest hardship the castaways faced was getting tan lines. It should go down well with the snowflake generation."

Anyone who fancies themselves as a castaway should apply here.
