Ten celebrities have arrived to take part in the most gruelling – and lucrative – reality survival show ever devised: two weeks completely alone on a remote Scottish island, in the depths of winter.

With a production team that seems incapable of keeping them safe, a gathering storm and the unrelenting gaze of hidden cameras, the contestants are stretched to the limit as they try and outshine their fellow competitors and hide their darkest secrets.

But when a contestant winds up dead, it soon becomes clear that the players are not just fighting for the prize, but for their lives.

LOUISE MINCHIN is an author, journalist, broadcaster and podcaster.

Louise presented the UK’s most watched morning programme, BBC Breakfast for 20 years. Before that was a news anchor on the BBC News Channel and the BBC’s One O’clock News. She has also presented The One Show, Five Live Drive, Real Rescues and Missing Live.

Louise has taken part in several reality TV shows including I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, Time Crashers and Celebrity MasterChef.

Alongside her career in journalism Louise is an endurance athlete, and her first book, Dare to Tri, charted her journey from the Breakfast sofa to representing the Great Britain Triathlon team in her age-group at World and European Championships.

Her second book Fearless, Adventures with Extraordinary Women refects her passion for celebrating women’s success in sport and endeavour. In each chapter Louise takes on a different challenge with a courageous woman, to get to know them and tell their incredible stories.

Her first thriller, Isolation Island, is set in a gruelling reality television show on a remote Scottish Island. It will be published in September 2024 by Headline Publishing Group, and you can pre-order now.
