I Survived a Zombie Apocalypse is a 2015 reality TV game show made for BBC Three. It is described as "the toughest reality show on TV"[1] and is presented by Greg James.

The show is centered on a group of contestants who must survive for seven days in an abandoned shopping centre overrun by zombies set six months after exposure to "5G Wifi". They have to make base, secure food, shelter and safety, and complete tasks set by the army. After seven days the army will evacuate any survivors out of the area to a "global tropical quarantine area".[2]

The show was filmed at the Freeport Leisure and Retail Village in West Calder, Scotland. The zombies were all trained by ScareScotland a company that specialises in horror actors for film, theatre, events and television.
