Brennan Reece

Meet our host: Laura Whitmore

Set in the sizzling South African savannah, Laura Whitmore will oversee the action as we pit a team of girls against a team of boys in the ultimate battle of the sexes.

Laura said: “I'm absolutely buzzing to be part of the Survival of the Fittest team. The ITV family always manages to come up with exciting and innovative formats and this brand new show is the ultimateBoys versus Girls. Having worked on five series of I'm a Celeb... I didn't think that it was possible to find a backdrop as exotic as the Jungle - cue the African Savannah. I can't wait to get out there, bring on the battle of the sexes!”

Award winning comedian, Brennan Reece, will also be on hand to provide the voiceover for the nightly shows which will update viewers with the latest action from The Lodge.

Brennan said: “I am so excited to be a part of the show. The closest I have ever come to being on Safari was a school trip to Chester Zoo one November, no one wants to see a crocodile shiver.”
