New gameshow alert! Prize Island starts this weekendBecca Day-Preston , 22nd October 2013, 13:14
The long-awaited Prize Island has a confirmed broadcast date! The exotic gameshow, which will see couples compete in wacky challenges in an exotic location in order to win prizes, will hit our screens on Sunday 27th October at 5:40pm, on ITV. It’s presented by familiar faces Emma Willis (Big Brother) and Alexander Armstrong (Pointless).
The challenge-based gameshow will invite couples to compete in games like ‘Coconut Superstore’, ‘Shipwreck’ and ‘Swiss Family Plumbing’ to win fitted kitchens, TVs and other prizes, building up to the final ‘Buried Treasure’ challenge that will see them compete to uncover (and win) £50,000 and a brand new car.
Endemol’s Richard Osman wrote this about Prize Island last year, in an article for the Guardian: “I’ve just watched a couple from Birmingham win a fitted kitchen by bouncing off an enormous inflatable octopus.” Sure, why not?
