Random Rewind: Prized Apart, BBC One

Random Rewind: we look back at some the best, and occasionally worst, entertainment shows from the past decade.


Prized Apart

2015, BBC One


Filmed on location in Morocco and in a UK studio, Prized Apart featured 10 couples who compete in a series of stunts and tasks to win a life-changing sum of money.



However, there is a twist as the couples are 'prized' apart for a maximum of six weeks without any contact - but even at a distance, they are still in it together.


Each couple comprises an adventurer and a studio player. The adventurers compete in a set of physically and mentally challenging tasks in Morocco with Reggie Yates on hand to support them - their aim is to stay in the competition as long as possible and avoid being sent home to the UK until the last episode.




The studio players remain in the UK, watching the week’s action unfold in the studio, and could find themselves answering make-or-break questions posed by Emma Willis to keep them and their partner in the competition and in the running for the prize.



The programme was axed by BBC One after one series after a string of negative reviews.
