Airing directly after the season final of Celebrity Island and a month after marooning 10 celebrities on a remote Pacific island, Bear Grylls returns to find out how they coped when left to fend for themselves in the wild and pushed to the edge. Ravaged by insect bites, thirst and hunger, and lashed by a succession of tropical storms, some celebs crumbled and quit.
The celebs talk candidly about events on the island. Olympic sprinter Iwan Thomas discusses his gung-ho approach. And for the first time ever, romance flourished on the island with Ryan Thomas and Lucy Mecklenburgh developing a close bond. The celebs also reflect upon how the whole experience has changed them.
