Holly Willoughby to host new celebrity jungle show with Bear Grylls

Holly Willoughby and Bear Grylls

Holly Willoughby is to tean up with Bear Grylls for a new jungle-based TV show.

Dancing On Ice host Holly Willoughby and famed explorer Bear Grylls will appear in new series, provisionally titled Bear Hunt.

It will see a group of unlikely British celebrities dropped into the Costa Rican jungle as prey for one of the world’s most fearsome predators – Bear Grylls.

Bear believes there’s an action hero inside us all – even the celebs – but how strong is their will to survive?

As Bear puts them through their paces, those who fail to impress will face the dreaded ‘Bear Hunt’ – a brutal game of cat and mouse where they’ll be hunted down by Bear himself and, if captured, eliminated from the show.

This opportunity marks Holly’s return to a significant TV role since her sudden departure from ITV’s This Morning in October.

Holly is no stranger to the jungle She previously replaced Ant McPartlin on I’m A Celeb in 2018, earning positive reception from viewers in the series won by Harry Redknapp.

For now, Holly is set to appear on Dancing On Ice alongside new host Stephen Mulhern, starting Sunday.

Meanwhile, the show would be the latest for Bear on Netflix with his adventure series You vs. Wild currently streaming now.
