Joel Dommett to host Survivor as it lands on BBC One

Joel Dommett has been confirmed as host of Survivor, as one of the world’s most successful formats is set for a brand-new UK launch and the global entertainment phenomenon lands on BBC One and iPlayer.

Survivor, which is being made by Remarkable Entertainment (a Banijay UK company), is the reality competition series that maroons people from all walks of life in a remote location to play the ultimate strategic and social game. Deprived of everyday basic comforts, with little more than the clothes on their back, they will need to outwit, outplay, and outlast each other to get to the end.

They’ll form their own tribal societies, catch their own food, build their own shelter, and compete against each other in epic challenges for reward or immunity. Those who win immunity are safe from being voted out of the game at the iconic Tribal Council. At each Tribal Council, each tribe must vote out one of their own, until the Sole Survivor emerges and wins a life-changing £100,000 cash prize.

Joel Dommett says: ‘I’m the new host of the UK’s Survivor! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! A huge thank you to the BBC for trusting me with this. It’s such a hugely popular format all over the world and I’m super excited to help bring it to our sweet little country. Let the tribal councils BEGIN!’

Applications to take part close on Friday, 17 March 2023, and more information is available at
