Dom Jolly shows off gruesome injury from Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls


Dom Jolly has shared some shocking pictures of the injury he suffered on Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls.

Just like the main series, the celebrities in the upcoming special were dumped on an inhabited island with cameras and some basic tools and told to fend for themselves.

Dom was one of ten celebs to take part in the show, which was filmed earlier this year and suffered a nasty attack by sandflies.

The comic took to Twitter this week to share pictures of the frankly disgusting aftermath, writing: "This is what happens when you try to @StandUp2C on @TheIsland."


He added: "Over 6 months since I did @TheIsland and the sandfly attack still affects me #CelebrityIsland."

Speaking about the show, Dom compared taking part to his stint on ITV's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

"Honestly, the jungle was a holiday camp compared to this," he said. “In the jungle you lounge around all day and have regular food and water.

"Here, not only do you have nothing to eat or drink but you have to move all the time. Nothing arrives unless you find it. Two days in, I couldn’t believe how f***ed I was.”

Dom wasn't the only celebrity to end up injured during filming with fellow contestant Lydia Bright getting stabbed with a fish hook.

Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls kicks off this Sunday night on Channel 4 at 9PM.

Other celebs on the show alongside Dom include Made In Chelsea's Ollie Locke, JLS singer Aston Merrygold, Rugby ace and model Thom Evans, Comedian Josie Long and Former Blue Peter presenter Zoe Salmon.
