Emma Willis to co-host Prize Island
Tuesday 10th Jul 2012
Emma Willis will join Alexander Armstrong to present ITV1's spectacular new game show set on a tropical island.
Contestants will work in couples of either family or friends to take on exhilarating challenges that test their clue-solving skills and relationships in order to win the increasing pile of prizes .
Each episode will begin with four couples, but one will be eliminated after each round, leaving the last two couples battling it out in the final game for the chance to win a brand new car - with a whopping £50,000 locked in the boot.
Emma Willis said: "I am beyond excited to be one of the presenters of Prize Island. It promises to be a show like no other, where contestants win unbelievable prizes and get to visit one of the most exotic and beautiful locations on the planet.
"It’s going to be a show that will transport the viewer to the other side of the world every weekend, and I can’t wait to be a part of such an ambitious and unique project for ITV1."
Elaine Bedell, ITV Director of Entertainment and Comedy, said: "Prize Island will be fantastic family fun in a stunning, paradise island setting, and promises a lot of laughs and thrills for our viewers, both from the games themselves, and the wittiness of our brilliant hosts Alexander and Emma, who we're really pleased to have on board."
Nick Samwell-Smith, Creative Director at Initial, said: "Prize Island is fabulous and ambitious and we are thrilled to be making it for ITV. The contestants are set for the journey of a lifetime to a tropical paradise that promises spectacular and ingenious games, surprises round every corner and prizes ripe for the picking absolutely everywhere.
"The entire desert island is our set, from the warm waters of the golden beaches to the towering sand dunes and the mysterious interior and you can win more awesome stuff than you can shake a coconut at."
Prize Island will air on ITV1 in 2013.
