James McAvoy to narrate new Channel 4 reality series The Bridge

James McAvoy is to narrate a new reality series for Channel 4 called The Bridge, which will see strangers come together to build a bridge to reach an island where a cash reward awaits.

Channel 4 has announced a new five-part reality show called The Bridge, to be narrated by James McAvoy.

The show - based on a Spanish format - sees 12 strangers come together in an attempt to win a £100,000 prize pot.

The cash lies on an island 250 metres away from base camp in the English countryside and to win it, they must team together to build a bridge to the island.

Steve Handley, Channel 4's commissioning editor, said: "Filmed in the backdrop of the wide open spaces of the glorious UK countryside that many of us have been dreaming of in recent months this entertaining and utterly engaging new reality series is bound to start many conversations about just how far we would each go to secure £100k."

Exec producer Warren Smith added: "After months of lockdown, a group of strangers have come together to tackle an intense challenge. We aim to find out whether they will work in harmony or will ruthless behaviour play a part in securing the £100,000 winnings?

"Filmed in the British countryside, we will demonstrate that you do not have to travel abroad to find beautiful locations, they exist on our doorstep."

The show is due to air later this year.
