The Bridge is a highly anticipated competition series with a twist, and the first episode is due to arrive on Channel 4 on October 11. Actor James McAvoy will narrate the series, which sees 12 strangers come together in the picturesque British countryside to win a share of £100,000. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about where the game show is filmed and set.
As this is a reality TV series the competition is set in the modern-day, and filming took place in late summer 2020 over a period of 22 days.
The pot of cash will not be an easy win as the group will need to work together to create a way across the water, to an island 250 metres away from their location.
They have just 20 days to build a bridge to reach the cash before the deadline, and they will face different twists along the way.
Each contestant will then be able to vote for whom they think deserves to win the cash prize. The winner is then given a choice to either share the pot between the rest of the group or keep it all for themselves.
The series will run across five episodes and fans can look forward to a test of both mental and physical skill as the group learns to work together under stressful circumstances.
