What is Survival of The Fittest about?

Survival Of The Fittest sees a group of hot, young singles sent to the South African Savannah to take part in the ultimate battle of the sexes, involving mental and physical challenges.

But the strength of the ladies and gents is not the only thing being tested.

Throughout the series the contestants will have the opportunity to romance the opposite sex – but only at the expense of their team’s chances in the competition.

Will they choose dates over mates, and find themselves in bed with the enemy? You can count on it…

As with Love Island, viewers will be able to vote off the contestants that don’t tickle their fancy.

They will also be responsible for choosing which of the sexes comes out on top.

“Her experience presenting spin-off show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! NOW! will come in handy as she interviews the programme’s stars once they’re booted off the Savannah.

“She’ll be there for the launch episode and the final, as well as any other pivotal moments in the series.”
