Voltage TV's highly successful reality format, Tempting Fortune, has been recommissioned for an eight-episode second series on Channel 4. Hosted by the charismatic Paddy McGuinness, the show's first series was one of Channel 4's most successful new launches last year, captivating audiences and becoming one of the most-watched shows of 2023 among 16-34-year-olds on Channel 4's free streaming service.

In this exciting new series, a fresh group of contestants will be transported to a tropical jungle location to face the ultimate test of willpower and honesty. Stripped of their comforts, they will rely solely on basic rations and survival gear. However, surviving the jungle is not the real challenge; it's resisting the tantalizing temptations that could transform their rugged jungle experience into a luxurious tropical getaway.

With a substantial cash prize at stake, contestants must resist spending any of it on luxuries if they want to take home their full share. While some are in it for the chance to win a life-changing sum, others are more interested in indulging themselves. Will the bonds formed between contestants convince some to resist temptation? Will those who give in come clean to the rest of the group? And will any of the prize money be left by the end of the adventure?

Paddy McGuinness, the show's host, commented: "Last series was full of backstabbing, betrayal, and sheer determination… but this time there are added twists! I'm thrilled to be back for an even bigger series, challenging a new set of brave, daring, and cunning contestants in the hot and sticky jungle. Let's see if anyone can resist my temptations!"

Steve Handley, Head of Reality & Entertainment at Channel 4, said: "Tempting Fortune has all the hallmarks of a classic Channel 4 format. It's the smart and mischievous love-child of an adventure series and a reality show, testing free will and human nature, often with hilarious consequences. I can't wait to see if our next batch of recruits can resist the irresistible temptations that Paddy has in store for them in the jungle."

Genna Gibson, Commissioner Editor, Reality & Entertainment at Channel 4, added: "It is fantastic news that Voltage and Paddy McGuinness are once again teaming up to deliver another exciting series of Tempting Fortune. Building upon the success of the first series, our new tropical jungle location will provide an even more challenging backdrop for our intrepid but somewhat unlikely explorers to dodge or succumb to their deepest desires. I, for one, can't wait to see what unfolds."

Tempting Fortune was commissioned for Channel 4 by Steven Handley, Head of Reality and Entertainment, with commissioning editor Genna Gibson. It is an 8x60' series produced by Voltage TV and GroupM Motion Entertainment. The executive producers are Sanjay Singhal and Jon Crisp for Voltage TV, with Melanie Darlaston for GroupM Motion Entertainment. Georgina Hinds serves as Showrunner. Cineflix Rights is the exclusive worldwide distribution partner for the format and series.
