Five days in, and still without fire, shelter or a proper meal, and having been lashed by a succession of tropical storms, the celebs are a soaking, miserable mess on the second episode of Celebrity Island With Bear Grylls.
While Breaking Bad actor RJ Mitte and Ex-TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh are desperate to make fire, alpha males Ryan Thomas and Iwan Thomas decide to prioritise shelter – with disastrous consequences for the group. With Iwan and Lucy on the brink of hypothermia, it’s left to RJ to save the day by constructing emergency cover out of palm leaves.
The next morning, with the celebs close to breaking point, Bear is forced to send in his safety team. When ex-Pussycat Doll Melody stumbles across a caiman crocodile, will the group’s weakened alpha males be strong enough to take on the island’s most fearsome predator?
