Hosted by Alexander Armstrong & Emma Willis, Prize Island is a new, action-packed game show set on a sun-baked tropical island. Here, ordinary couples arrive in an extraordinary place to participate in incredible games and challenges to win prizes.  The island is a magical place, remote and untouched by the modern world - it is exactly the kind of paradise where we all dream of being marooned, filled with wildlife, sweeping landscapes, the odd vast shipwreck and tons of prizes.
The entire island is the show’s set, with over-the-top stunts and colourful games scattered across the landscape. A surprise lurks round every corner… fitted kitchens appearing from the ocean, TVs in the undergrowth, even hairdryers with very modern technology that lock in moisture dug from the prize seams beneath the abandoned Old Gold Mine. There is even the wreck of a half-submerged pirate galleon in one of the bays across which the contestants must race to stay in the competition.
In this week’s show four couples arrive on Prize Island to compete in thrilling games like ‘Leaving On A Jetty Plane’, ‘Shipwreck’ and ‘Mine Swing’. After each round a team is eliminated, leaving only one couple to compete in the final located at the remote and mysterious Moonfish Bay. In ‘Buried Treasure’ the finalists will attempt to locate and win the ultimate prize buried in the sands - a new car and £50,000. 
Housemates Hannah & Lisa are Yorkshire born & bred, they are inseparable and most of all they laugh at each other… a lot. The other contestants might think they are silly and funny – which it’s hard to deny – but they reckon that deep down they have the skills to win.
Flatmates David & Sarkis are like a real life “odd couple”. David is a psychologist and Sarkis is a lawyer and to not put too fine a point on it, they bicker. They are also however highly competitive and if they can just put their differences to one side for a moment, they might be in with a chance.
Mother & son Rachel & Nick are thrilled to be on Prize Island and offer the perfect combination of brains and brawn. He’s the brainy medical student and his mum’s the outdoorsy fitness type making, they think, an unbeatable team.
Finally, if they would just stop snogging for a few minutes, there’s Vincent & Jo, recently married and carrying a long list of “wants” and “must haves” from both their respective kids. Jo is nervy, but Vince is highly competitive. Have they got the prize-winning magic touch?
