Five days in, and still without fire, shelter or a proper meal, and having been lashed by a succession of tropical storms, the celebs are a soaking, miserable mess.

In this evening's episode, as the stars struggle to make fire, a decision to prioritise shelter ends with disastrous consequences for the group.


With the celebs close to breaking point, Bear is forced to send in his safety team to sort out the celebrities.

RJ ends up quitting, telling the group: "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."

Despite the celebs trying to get him to stay, he insists: "I want to leave. It's something that I have to do and I've made up my mind."


RJ concludes: "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."

Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls airs tonight at 9:15PM on Channel 5.
