Company

Across eight episodes, Tom Allen takes on the role of Captain of the SS Unsinkable which has run aground. Thankfully there are four undiscovered islands ahead that the passengers can go and live on, and Captain Tom is trusting his comic friends - Sara Pascoe, Johnny Vegas, Ninia Benjamin and Ahir Shah - as leaders of the islands. They must make their own personal dream desert island the best and attract the most passengers to win the series.

Each week, Allen will put these four islands, and their leaders to the test - who's got the best house band? How do you even judge that? And you may think you want your island's only drink to be Fanta Limon, but what happens when it attracts that swarm of angry bees you chose last week? Well, Kemah Bob and Jason Forbes are on hand as they bring 'live' reports from the islands, to make sure nothing is missed.

The Island is devised by James Acaster, Ed Gamble, Lloyd Langford and John Robins.
