Hosted by Alexander Armstrong & Emma Willis, Prize Island is a new, action-packed gameshow 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.
 
For the final time this series four couples arrive on Prize Island to compete in thrilling games like ‘mine-o-mite’, ‘Shipwreck’ and ‘Ship to Shore’. 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. 
 
And what a line-up of contestants Xander & Emma are ready to greet down at the arrivals jetty. Linda and Anna are the closest of friends, but it wasn’t always that way. They used to loathe each other, but will their relationship stand the pressures of Prize Island? Hina and Gilly from Manchester are getting married soon and would love to leave the island laden with fabulous goodies for their new marital home. But Hina is notoriously lazy. Can Gilly get her motivated for the challenges that lie ahead? One couple who definitely have their eyes on the prize are identical twins James & Daniel. Both are now in their mid twenties and settling in to family life. For them this is one last great big adventure together. Can they go all the way and win the biggest prize of all? Not if Penny and Richard, the guesthouse owners from Bath, have anything to say about it. They may be the oldest competitors on the island this week, but their energy, tenacity and humour make them serious contenders.
 
Who has it in them to defeat their opponents and take on everything that the remote and fabulous Prize Island throws at them?
