Since its inception, The Island with Bear Grylls has followed the same format of testing fourteen Britons to survive on a desert island for over a month solo. And while The Island has entertained viewers for five seasons now, Bear is back with a spin on the show which looks even better.
Treasure Island with Bear Grylls will follow as twelve more contestants take on the survival challenge but this time with an added incentive: £100,000.
Pitting the contestants against each other will provide a fascinating twist and reveal whether the potential financial gain will rule their heads.
So who are the twelve contestants taking part in Treasure Island? Let’s get to know more about the cast before they embark on this immense challenge.
