When does The Bridge start on Channel 4 and how does the show work?

THE Bridge is a new reality TV show hitting British screens.

James McAvoy will narrate the series while contestants play.

When does The Bridge start on Channel 4?

The start date hasn't been confirmed, but it will be in late 2020.

Set in the English countryside, the picturesque series will be shown in five parts.

Channel 4 have said the show "is set to be the ultimate test of mental skill, physical agility and group dynamics".

How does The Bridge work?

The Bridge is a reality show featuring 12 people who will all enter the show as strangers.

They will meets on "the banks of a picturesque lake in the British countryside, totally clueless as to what awaits them".

Contestants must work as a team in order to win the prize, which is located on an island 250 metres away.

They do this by working together to build a bridge to the island in 20 days.

Channel 4 have said "surprise twists" await those participating, so it's not as straightforward as simply building a bridge.

If they are able to build the bridge in time, the group has to nominate one person in the team to go and retrieve the prize by crossing the bridge.

Each contestant gets one vote to pick who they think is "most deserving of the life changing prize," as Channel 4 explain.

Then, despite all the teamwork, the selected person has a choice: keep the prize entirely, or share it with the rest of the group.

So as well as building the bridge, contestants must also be likeable if they want a chance at being crowned the winner by their fellow teammates.

What do the winners of The Bridge get?

Winners get a whopping £100,000 prize.

Steve Handley, Commissioning Editor at Channel 4 said the series "is bound to start many conversations about just how far we would each go to secure £100k."

Warren Smith, Executive Producer for Workerbee added: "We aim to find out whether [contestants] will work in harmony or will ruthless behaviour play a part in securing the £100,000 winnings?"

We look forward to finding out.
