With Aldo Kane as the series’ extreme locations expert.
Returning for what promises to be a harder, hotter and tougher series, The Bridge, now supersized, is set on a new tropical location with double the drama and double the money up for grabs. Two teams will go head-to-head to be the first to get their hands on a £200k jackpot.
The 8-part series, hosted by AJ Odudu will see 16 strangers come together for the chance to win the big cash prize, but unaware of the epic challenge required to take the money home.
The contestants must put egos and differences aside to tackle the ultimate test of physical ability, mental skill and teamwork.
Going head-to-head, the teams face a race to build a bridge over 1,000 feet of water in just 12 days to reach the cash held on top of ‘Fortune Rock’. But will whoever reaches the money first choose to share it with their teammates?
Adventurer and explorer Aldo Kane joins the competitors in the paradise islands of Ha Long Bay, Vietnam, overseeing the challenges that will test the teams’ nerves and ability. He’ll make sure no one reaches the jackpot without giving it their all.
Along the way, the teams will face surprise dilemmas and devious temptations that disrupt the whole competition as we discover who is prepared to deceive their teammates for their own personal gain. Working together is key, but in this pressure-cooker environment everyone must decide who to trust and where their allegiances lie.
Speaking about hosting the new series, AJ Odudu said "The opportunity to front The Bridge has happened almost serendipitously. From the Strictly Ballroom I have taken off onto my next, new adventure. Literally. It's so exciting to front a show that promises to push the envelope and I know The Bridge is going to be bold, full of excitement and filled with plenty of drama. Bring it on."
And on joining the series, Aldo Kane said "Over the last 25 years, I have been operating in some of the world’s most extreme, remote and hostile locations, but this is one of the highest-stake missions I’ve ever worked on. For those involved in the challenge, if they can survive the pressure, this could be a truly life-changing experience, for more reasons than just the prize money."
"The cash won’t come easy though, I am looking forward to putting the team through their paces and stretching their every fibre, from morals and emotions to basic campcraft and survival. This hybrid formula from Workerbee is going to be epic!"
The Bridge returns later this year on Channel 4
