What time is Island of Dreams on TV?
Island of Dreams is a one-off special that airs on BBC2 at 10pm on Thursday 3rd January. However, if this pilot is successful, the show may return for a full series.
What is Island of Dreams about?
The series follows the Virgin billionaire, Sir Richard Branson (played by Harry Enfield, who starred as Prince Charles in The Windsors), who invites various celebrities to his island, Necker, and attempts to solve their problems for them.
The celebrities are able to kick back and relax under the tropical sun, sipping cocktails served by bikini-clad waitresses. But does Branson have a dark, ulterior motive…?
