The stars of Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls found themselves attacked by BEES on tonight's opening show.

This evening saw the start of the second celebrity version of the show, which sees contestants dropped on a deserted island to fend for themselves.


From making shelter to finding food, the participants must do everything themselves - including filming whatever happens.

Celebs on the current series are Breaking Bad actor RJ Mitte, Olympian & broadcaster Iwan Thomas, Actor & Rizzle Kicks singer Jordan Stephens, comedian Mark Watson and Actor Ryan Thomas.

They're joined by Former TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh, Olympian & TV presenter Sharron Davies, Former Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton, Comedian & writer Shazia Mirza and TV doctor Sara Kayat.

All they will have are the clothes on their back, basic tools, medical supplies, 24 hours of water and each other.

In the first episode, after Bear dropped them in a crocodile-infested swamp, Iwan took the rein and led the group to a beach. But he was soon called into question by Shazia, who disliked his gung-ho attitude.


Finding water and making fire to purify it were an urgent priority in the sweltering tropical heat. When Iwan, Ryan and Jordan searched for water they got lost in the jungle and Ryan ws attacked by a swarm of bees.

He was seen screaming in agony before revealing his bitten covered torso.

With the 'alpha males' out of action, the women - led by Shazia and Melody - took up the quest and managed to find a water source. But without fire to purify it, the celebs became dangerously dehydrated.

Eventually, a torrential downpour saved their skin and Iwan's leadership.

However, against the advice of RJ, Iwan decided to build shelter rather than concentrate on fire. As dusk fell an infestation of termites forced them to abandon camp and the celebs were lashed by a tropical storm.


Without fire, shelter or anything to eat, the celebs started to question their ability to survive and Iwan's failed leadership

Celebrity Island with Bear Gyrlls continues next Tuesday night at 9:15PM on Channel 4.
