The nine participants in the RTÉ reality TV show, Cabin Fever, are on their way home tonight while a decision on the future of the programme is awaited.

It follows the sinking of the ship on which the show takes place off the coast of Donegal on Friday.

Coco Productions and RTÉ say they will now review all available options before making a decision on the future of the series.

A short while ago the group arrived by coach at Dublin airport.

Viewers have been asked not to attempt to call or text the special Cabin Fever voting numbers as they will be charged.
