“The fourth series has once again been incredibly well received so it was a no-brainer for Channel 4 to do it all over again,” a source told The Sun newspaper of Series 5. “It’s been one of this year’s biggest TV hits and they want to run another full series next year.”

They added: “Channel 4’s audience love Bear Grylls and Bear loves the show so was eager to give it another run. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.”

Bear Grylls said of the show: “It has been incredible to see the effect that The Island has not only on those who undergo the challenge themselves but also from so many millions of viewers around the world.

“It reminds us that when squeezed and stripped of everything, mankind and womankind still have an amazing spirit of resourcefulness, courage, and endurance, as well as an inspiring ability to form the closest of bonds with those alongside them going through hell.”
