The Celebrity line up for a new all star spin off of The Island with Bear Grylls has been confirmed.

A Celebrity series of The Island with Bear Grylls has reported to have been in the works as early as August last year but Channel 4 only confirmed earlier in 2016 it was actually happening.

10 celebrities have signed up for the show with the group made up of celebrities from the worlds of television, music, sport and comedy.

The Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls will start on Sunday, September 18 and is all in the aid of charity for Channel 4's Stand Up to Cancer campaign.

The celebrity version of The Island will be much the same as the regular series that concluded its third run back in the spring, but last only two weeks.

The celebrity contestants will be left on an uninhabited island in the Pacific with just the clothes they're wearing and a handful of basic tools.

They'll have to make shelter, hunt for food and keep safe: The latest run saw one contestant flown to hospital after falling from a cliff while another had to give himself stitches following an accident with a machete.

The new four part celebrity series will start on TV this weekend, September 18 at 9PM on Channel 4.
