The makers of Love Island debut their new TV show on Sunday – Survival Of The Fittest.

Hosted by Laura Whitmore, the ITV2 show features “a group of young, hot singles living together” in sunny South Africa.

EastEnders’ star Danny Dyer’s daughter, barmaid Dani Mas Dyer, 21, and I’m A Celebrity winner Georgia “Toff” Toffolo’s ex-boyfriend James Middleton, 24, are among the contestants.

The 12 singletons “take part in the ultimate battle of the sexes”, with physical and mental challenges, to compete for a cash prize.

Whitmore says: “You can expect drama, excitement, rivalry and humour… and hopefully a bit of romance as they are all single.”

Love Island, hosted by Caroline Flack, was a huge, surprise hit for ITV2 last summer – and returns later this year.

Survival Of The Fittest starts today at 9pm on ITV2.
