The celebrity line up of contestants for Bear Grylls' Mission Survive have been confirmed today.
Survival expert Bear Grylls stars in a new adrenalin-fuelled series for ITV this year in which the adventurer takes eight celebrities into the depths of one of the most unforgiving Central American rainforests, where they will be competing in an epic 12-day survival mission.
The celebs will have to navigate treacherous obstacles and journey through dangerous dense jungle, testing their ability to adapt, improvise and overcome in one of the world’s most hostile environments.
And all while having to cross perilous rapids, trudge through swamps and negotiate razor-sharp vines - not to mention contending with scorpions, snakes and sand flies.
Joining Bear on the trip are actors Emilia Fox and Laurence Fox, singer and actor Max George, double Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes, TV presenter and singer Jamelia, comedy actor Tom Rosenthal, DJ, model and presenter Vogue Williams and Former England International Rugby Player Mike Tindall MBE.
At the end of every episode Bear will eliminate one person and come the end of the series, there will be three finalists and ultimately just one Mission Survivor.
Bear Grylls said he wanted the winner to have "the qualities that a survivor in a real-life scenario most needs: positivity, resourcefulness, courage, determination, and a whole heap of bloody mindedness!”
The show will air on ITV later this year somewhen.
