Check out the audition videos of the 13 people chosen to be Castaways on a remote New Zealand island on BBC One’s new series.

The 13 Castaways taking part in the second series of “the original reality show” include a young Tory, a mother-of-four, a former drug addict and a lap dancer.

The original series of Castaway, broadcast in 2000, lasted a year and saw 36 people spend the time in the Scottish Outer Hebrides.

This time, the Castaways will spend 12 weeks on Great Barrier Island in New Zealand, where one viewer will also be able to join them eight weeks into the show.

The Castaways will have to build their own shelter, grow and collect their own food, and use the land and ocean to feed themselves.

The weekly series, presented by Danny Wallace, begins on Friday night on BBC1 and will run every night from Monday to Thursday on BBC3.

BBC One controller Peter Fincham said: “Castaway was the original reality show and the genre had evolved enormously since then… The original purpose, to see how people react once they are taken far away from all that they take for granted remains the same.”
