The BBC reboot of Survivor is calling for applications for the 2023 show which will see the winner receive a £100,000 cash prize.

The popular reality competition, which last appeared on UK screens in 2002 on ITV, sees members of the public battle in a tropical location to win what the show calls a “unique game of social, mental and physical skill”.

The contestants, who will be eliminated over a 16-episode series, will be fighting to become the Sole Survivor.

The BBC said previously that contestants would be divided into two tribes which would go head-to-head in a range of physical and psychological challenges.

After a number of players are eliminated at the tribal council, the two groups will merge and continue to compete until one person proves they have what it takes to be the ultimate survivor and walk away with the cash prize.

The new UK adaption has been commissioned by BBC One and BBC iPlayer from Banijay UK company Remarkable Entertainment and will be led by producers Natalka Znak and Claire O’Donohoe.

The reality competition is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, after the show was first aired in Sweden in 1997.

The BBC has said 50 versions of the programme have been commissioned around the world to date and the USA adaptation is airing its 43rd series.

The broadcaster also announced that the hit ’90s series Gladiators would be returning to the BBC next year.

Big Brother, which was a hit on Channel 4 before moving to Channel 5, is also making a comeback next year following a five-year hiatus, after being revived by ITV.

Survivor applications, for people aged 18 and over, will close on February 24 2023.
