Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls returns for 2018 and the first celebs on the cast have reportedly been revealed.

A new Celebrity line up for the all star spin off of The Island with Bear Grylls will head out into the wild soon.

The latest set of celebrities are signing up for what will be the third series of the survival reality show.

In aid of charity for Channel 4's Stand Up to Cancer campaign, the Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls sees a number of celebs dropped on an inhabited island.

Alongside a pair of camera crew - who are living in just the same conditions - the celebs arrive with just the clothes they're wearing and a handful of basic tools in order to survive four weeks.

The Sun newspaper reports that model and TV personality Jo Wood plus Emmerdale actress Roxanne Pallett have signed up to the series.

A source told the tabloid: “The Island makes other reality shows look like a walk in the park. Jo and Roxanne are looking forward to the challenge but are secretly dreading it.

“Roxanne in particular loves her creature comforts – but you can’t even take a toothbrush onto Bear’s show."

Joining the ladies is said to be TOWIE's Pete Wicks.

The celebs will begin filming later this year, with the show typically airing in the autumn on Channel 4.

For the time being, the main series currently airs at 9PM on Monday nights on the channel.

The Island with Bear Grylls kicked off its 2018 series last week with a brand twist seeing the contestants split into two groups based on their wages.

One group earns an average of £100,000 a year while the other takes home less than the national average.

A total of 16 people have been sent to live on an uninhabited pacific island with just the clothes on their back and a few basic survival tools. As always, they're filming everything that happens themselves as they try to survive for five weeks.
