Channel 4 is looking for men and women to take part in a new series of the survival show.

Norfolk dwellers could swap farmland and greenery for a more tropical outlook by taking part in a new series of The Island.

The show, in which survivalist Bear Grylls strands a willing group of British men and women on a desert island, will be back for a sixth series and you could be a part of it.

Channel 4 is looking for men and women over the age of 18 to swap the luxuries of modern life for the survival challenge.

Apart from the age restriction there are no other requirements listed on the casting call which states: 'No experience of adventure or survival pursuits is necessary.'

Those looking to take part are asked to contact theislandc4@shine.tv. The closing date to register your interest is Monday October 8.
