Would you have what it takes to survive if you were stranded on an uninhabited island in the Pacific Ocean?
Survival expert Bear Grylls returns for another season (Season 3) and has abandoned 16 British men and women on a remote island with only the clothes on their back and rudimentary tools. Marooned separately in all-male and all-female teams on opposite sides of the island, the two groups will need to find each other to improve their chances of survival.
Will Army veteran Hannah’s training prepare her for the rigours of life on the island? Meanwhile Rizwan, on the men’s team, hopes the challenge will be a turning point in his life. The island might look like paradise, but the dense jungle is home to potentially deadly creatures – will they be able to find food and water and create shelter to survive the month?
Find out in the brand new season of The Island with Bear Grylls only on Discovery Channel (121) from Tuesday 24 January at 21:00.
