Vick Hope joins E4's Shipwrecked
The broadcaster and presenter will narrate the latest series of the pioneering paradise reality show on E4 in 2019
Broadcaster and presenter Vick Hope will be the voice of the all-new series of Shipwrecked, the pioneering paradise island reality show returning for a new 15-part prime-time series on E4 in early 2019.
The new series will see a batch of adventurous young castaways competing in the ultimate popularity contest on two uninhabited paradise islands in the South Pacific. The two tribes – Sharks and Tigers – will battle it out to win over new arrivals to their respective islands, with a £50k prize fund at stake for the largest tribe at the end of the competition.
Vick comments: “I’m chuffed to be voicing the all new series of Shipwrecked. I was such a fan of the show back in the day on T4, and my friends and I would be so invested in all the tribal twists and turns on Shark and Tiger Island, so it’s a real honour to get to have the first sneak peek at winter’s hottest reality show. There are some amazing characters, epic bombshells and lovely waves of nostalgia ahead.”
Neale Simpson, Executive Producer, Fizz comments: “Vick is the perfect voice for the Shipwrecked and we're thrilled that she is joining us to tell the remarkable story of our island adventures. We've loved seeing Vick become instantly hooked on the mischief and mayhem that ensues as the Tigers and Sharks battle it out in the ultimate popularity contest in paradise.”
Abigail Adams, Executive Producer, Motion Content Group adds: “We’re delighted to once again be working with Vick Hope. Her humour and warmth shine through the series.”
Karl Warner, Controller of E4 adds: “Shipwrecked changed the game, and we’re very excited about the new series that confidently shakes up reality TV once again. Thanks to the amazing creative team behind the camera, a diverse cast of characters and the brilliant talents of Vick Hope, the new series has all the ingredients for a fresh blast of sunshine and surprises to kick off a hugely exciting year ahead on E4.”
The 15 x 60’ brings Shipwrecked back to our screens for the first time since 2011. Shipwrecked is executive produced by Neale Simpson and Kate Bates for Fizz, part of the Banijay Group and Abigail Adams for Motion Content Group. The series is a commission for E4 by Channel 4 Formats and Features.
