Mission Survive: Bear Grylls fronts new celebrity survival reality series

Bear Grylls

Bear Grylls is set to take eight celebs on an adventure they will never forget.

In what is seemingly just a warmer version of 71 Degrees North, survival expert Bear will guide
stars on a 12-day trek through the Central American rainforest.

He'll offer advice and daily briefings for the celebs but they will be on their own for the majority of the time as they complete various missions.

Although in an Apprentice-style twist, Bear has employed two helpers Megan Hine and Scott Heffield to watch over the celebs and report back.

And as with all good reality shows, there's a competition element with celebs gradually being eliminated over the course of the show to leave one winner.

Hunky Bear Grylls said: "This show is all about empowerment and I am so proud of how the celebrity team who joined me on Mission Survive performed. It was without doubt a tough expedition, but also a very life-enhancing adventure for everyone involved.

"I would set them daily survival missions and would then regularly back away, leaving them to their own devices, so that they would learn by doing it and making mistakes."

He added: "That's the source of all genuine growth in a survivor. I was looking for 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 sometime(??) this year.
