How does Shipwrecked 2019 work?
On two remote islands, two rival tribes, the Tigers and the Sharks, battle against each other in the ultimate popularity contest in paradise.
In each episode new arrivals land ashore where they’ll spend a day and night with each tribe.
Both the Tigers and Sharks will do whatever it takes to win the new arrivals over in a bid to prove that they are the better island.
According to E4: “At the end of each episode the new arrivals must decide which tribe they want to join…but in Shipwrecked, anything can happen.

At the end of the series, the biggest tribe will win the cash prize of £50,000.
