PSA: ‘Survivor UK’ Will Be Fast Tracked Down Under

Cast of Survivor UK. Here's where to watch Survivor UK in Australia.

While Australian Survivor: Titans Vs Rebels is still months away, US Survivor is in full swing. However, if you’re one of the old school Survivor fans who has mixed feelings about the changes Survivor has made to its gameplay and format in recent years, then perhaps you’re looking for something new. Something like… Survivor UK, maybe?

Survivor UK is the latest addition to the global mega-franchise that is Survivor. Like Australian SurvivorSurvivor UK had two seasons in the early 2000s, but was quickly cancelled. And like Australian SurvivorSurvivor UK is now being revived and revamped for a new audience. Since the revival of Australian Survivor in 2016, it’s gone on to become one of the most popular reality competitions in the country. Will the same be true for Survivor UK? Only time will tell.

In classic Survivor style, Survivor UK will welcome 18 Castaways to the game, where they’ll have to outwit, outplay, and outlast their fellow competitors. The new season was filmed in the Dominican Republic, and they’ll be competing for £100,000 and the title of Sole Survivor.

Prior to his move into comedy and hosting gigs, Dommett had some minor acting roles in British shows like Casualty and Teenage Kicks, and played DC Sweeney in Season 4 of cult teen show Skins.

He’s also tried his hand at competing on reality TV. In 2016, Dommett competed on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, where he came second to winner Scarlett Moffatt.

Dommett married his wife, British model Hannah Cooper in 2019. The pair met after Cooper drunkenly sent him a cat emoji on Instagram, shortly after his appearance on I’m a Celeb.

In 2018, Dommett released his first book, a memoir titled It’s Not Me It’s Them: Confessions of a Hopeless Modern Romantic. The book covered his romantic life up until he met Cooper, and ended with him proposing to her.
