BBC announces ‘hellish’ new Saturday night challenge show, Prized Apart

Couples will be under the spotlight when the BBC launches a new Saturday night entertainment challenge show, Prized Apart, in the spring.

Emma Willis and Reggie Yates will host Prized Apart, which wil be filmed on location and abroad, and will feature 10 contestants competing in a range of challenges.

Each week, the bottom placed contestants are flown back to the UK to a studio hanger where their partners await. The stay-at-home players must keep their loved ones in the competition by answering a set of questions in a head-to-head round against the other partners. If they succeed, their loved ones will get back on the plane to continue the game.

Emma said: “Prized Apart will be nail biting, emotional and full of energy. I’ll be there with the partners in the studio as they watch their loved ones go through their hellish challenges in mystery locations abroad. It should be lots of fun to see how far the contestants will go for their loved ones. I can’t wait to get stuck in.”

Reggie Yates commented: “I’m thrilled to be a part of such an exciting and fresh show in Prized Apart with Emma. I’ll be getting to know the adventurers and will be with them every step of the way as they perform the tough challenges. It’s going to be an incredible experience and I can’t wait to get started.”

The six-episode series of Prized Apart will screen on BBC One.
