Bear Grylls' Mission Survive gets second series on ITV

Bear Grylls

Bear Grylls' Mission Survive has been renewed for a second series on ITV.

The reality survival show saw eight celebs take on a ridiuclous trek across South America, with Bear as their guide.

They had to deal with everything mother nature could throw at them as they navigated their way through the jungle.

The stars, which included The Wanted singer Max George and rugby hunk Mike Tindall, had to learn how to make fire and build shelter, as well as take on challenges including abseiling and crossing raging crocodile infested rivers.

The celebs on the first series also had to drink their own wee, something which we're sure they'll never forget.

And then there was the food which made the meals on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here look positively gourmet, as the celebs had to try everything from rats to tarantula legs, as well as preparing it all themselves.

Over 3 million watched last week's final as Bear crowned model Vogue Williams his inaugural Mission Survive champ, with the series grabbing over 4 million viewers in consolidated figures.

Broadcast magazine now reports that ITV have picked up the show for a second run to air next year on the channel.

Bear, unsurprisingly, is said to be "delighted" with the news.
