'Shipwrecked' 2019 Cast: Meet The Contestants Of E4's New Revival

The original island-based reality show is back.

After nearly seven years away, everyone’s favourite hangover show ‘Shipwrecked’ is returning to our screens, with bosses now revealing the opening line-up.

A new crop of castaways will be doing battle as two rival tribes when the new series launches in a new primetime slot on E4 next week.

The opening line-up for the new series of 'Shipwrecked'

As in the previous ‘Battle Of The Island’ series, each episode will see new arrivals land ashore and spend 24 hours with each tribe. The Tigers and Sharks must then do whatever it takes for the newbie to choose to stay with their tribe, culminating in them making their decision

The aim of the game is for each island to build the biggest tribe possible, with the winners bagging a £50,000 cash prize – but with the rules of the game changing at any time, anything could happen. 

Ahead of the first episode, here’s an introduction to the first nine islanders...
