Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls 2017 line up: Another celeb quits the show

Latest Celebrity Island cast change

Another celebrity contestant has quit the Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls 2017.


Comedian Mark Watson became the latest celeb to leave last night, making a total of four exits so far.

After struggling with insomnia and weight loss, and even fearing he was “dying”, Mark made the decision to leave after three weeks.

“I feel really disappointed and sad but I also feel that it’s right,” he said in the latest episode.

The comic added: “I didn’t want to ever leave before the end because I feel like I’m quitting and letting people down a bit.”

Mark is the fourth celeb to leave the show so far.


Olympian & TV presenter Sharron Davies and Actor & Rizzle Kicks singer Jordan Stephens both requested to leave the island after two weeks on last week’s show.

After 14 days, Sharron had enough and described the experience to living in a war zone.

Also missing her family, Sharron told the other celebs she was sure of her decision and called in Bear’s team to be evacuated.

The next day, after a failed fishing trip, Jordan also asked to leave before getting taken away off the island by Bear’s team.

And week before saw Breaking Bad actor RJ Mitte become the first to depart, saying: “I feel like everyone here is really disorganised, and, as a group, we’re very dysfunctional and I don’t see it changing.

“My only choice is to leave the island.”

He added: “I don’t feel like I can be a part of this group. In a real survival situation, some of them would’ve been eaten.”
