The Island 2016: Rizwan Shabir 'quits over half naked women'

Rizwan Shabir

Rizwan Shabir has become the latest contestant to leave The Island with Bear Grylls 2016.

The 26-year-old was seen leaving in tonight's latest show, citing the 'half naked women' as one of the reasons for his decision.

But the Mobile Phone Shop owner from Bradford insisted it also down to the pressure of life on The Island as he asked to be evacuated after eleven days.

Rizwan, also known as Riz, said: "At the end of the day I am a Muslim - I'm not used to living with women who are half-naked. This is harder than what I thought it would be.

"Basically I'm around a group of women who are half-naked, which in my religion and culture I shouldn't really be."

Having continued to try and stick to his religious beliefs throughout his stay, Riz decided in tonight's show he had had enough and used the emergency satellite phone to ask to go home.

"Basically, I want to apologise for making the decision to go," he told the group.

The girls offered: "Would it help if we didn't walk around in bikinis?"

But Riz said no, and explained there were other reasons behind his decision.

The rest of The Islanders didn't seem too pleased to see Riz opt to depart but quickly moved on as the hunt for food intensified.

The Island with Bear Grylls airs Monday nights on Channel 4 at 9PM.
