The Island with Bear Grylls: Series 2

The Island with Bear Grylls is getting a third series and here's how you can take part.

The first series of The Island averaged 3 million viewers last year and this year's run, which concludes next week, has so far average 3.2 million viewers proving hit for Channel 4.

On the announcement of a second season over 80,000 people applied to take part, all believing they had what it takes to survive cast away on a remote pacific island in just the clothes they stood up in, basic training and with just a few tools.

Channel 4 is once again looking for a broad range of both men and women who think they have what it takes to thrive in such challenging conditions for the third run next year.

Bear Grylls said: "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.

He added: “As a team we are ambitious to raise the bar for this third series and push the limits of human survival even further. Hold tight!"
