The Island 2016: Desperate search for food ends in disaster

The Island with Bear Grylls 2016 spoilers


The Island with Bear Grylls continues on Channel 4 tonight as the contestants approach the two week mark.

And in this evening's episode, things are getting rather desperate.

Right now the islanders have been marooned for ten days on their deserted island and have had barely anything to eat.

Thanks to some less than stellar hunting techniques, including mistaking a bag for a stingray, the men and women have been making do with what they can forage around camp.

In tonight's show, tensions between the now combined group of guys and girls continues after meeting for the first time last week.

There are fireworks between some of the campers and it appears that we could see a split between the gang.

Faced with arguments, starvation and one of the group wanting to leave, some decide to try and finally catch some much needed food.

Rob leads a hunt but the Islanders' attempts to fish come to nothing and they find themselves taking increasingly terrifying risks.

At one point, Rob chooses to lead a group of the strongest swimmers into the sea to set a fishing net in the perilous deep water, but they quickly get into trouble.

With those on the beach noticing that the strong tide is pulling the others further and further away from the island, there's a scramble to make it back to dry land.

Most of the swimmers make it ashore but the men and women are left in crisis when they realise Rob is nowhere to be seen.

The Island with Bear Grylls continues tonight 9PM on Channel 4.
