The Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls will air on Channel 4 in the autumn

The Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls is back as ten more brave celebrities endure four weeks surviving in one of the toughest environments on earth. Leaving behind their friends, family, mobile phones and social media accounts and giving up their luxurious showbiz lifestyles, the well-known group will make a remote and uninhabited island their home.

All they will have are the clothes on their back, basic tools, medical supplies, enough water to last for 24 hours and each other. If they have the ingenuity to find it, The Island will provide them with all they need to not just survive but thrive.

The group includes Academy Award and Golden Globe nominated actor, Eric Roberts, actor and musician, Martin Kemp, double Olympic gold medal rower, James Cracknell, Olympic boxer, Anthony Ogogo, TOWIE star, Pete Wicks, model and TV personality, Jo Wood, Love Island star Montana Brown, actress and radio broadcaster, Roxanne Pallett, journalist, presenter and transgender activist Paris Lees and TV doctor, Dr Saleyha Ahsan.

The famous line-up will capture the action from their time on The Island themselves and they will also be joined by four embedded crew who will live alongside them in exactly the same conditions to help document the highs and lows of the month.

The series was commissioned by Channel 4 Factual Entertainment commissioning editor, Ian Dunkley and will be made by Shine TV, part of Endemol Shine Group UK. Sebastian Grant and Nicola Brown will exec produce for Shine TV and Bear Grylls and Delbert Shoopman will exec produce for BGV.
