Tempting Fortune | Preview (Channel 4)

Paddy McGuinness presents as 12 strangers give up all luxuries to endure a gruelling 18-day trek across the South African wilderness, to reach a shared £300,000 prize at the finish line.

The competitors will be given only the most basic equipment and rations to help them on their tortuous journey. But there's a catch: along the way, they'll face a series of incredible temptations designed to entice them into spending their collective prize money on their innermost desires.

Who will give in? And more importantly, will they tell their teammates they've spent a chunk of the loot on themselves? When a single shower costs £1000, the bill can rack up quickly...

Phil Harris, Head of Entertainment and Events at Channel 4 said “Tempting fortune is a brilliant cocktail of Sanjay’s high concept factual and our trademark subversive entertainment that should provide a brilliant mix of action, drama and comedy on an audacious scale”

Jonny Rothery, commissioning editor for Entertainment at Channel 4 said “Tempting Fortune really stands out as a new twist on the adventure format. Not only will we be taken with our cast on an extraordinary adventure but seeing them tested by the very visual mirage temptations will have us all shouting at the TV questioning why someone would pay £5000 for an ice-cold beer.“

Tempting Fortune begins Sunday 26th March at 9pm on Channel 4.
