Eight celebrities face a 12 day survival mission unlike anything they’ve ever experienced before. To stay alive they must learn to navigate impossible terrain, build shelter, make fire and eat food that nature provides. From abseiling down ferocious waterfalls, crossing perilous rapids, trudging through swamps and eating rats and scorpions; this is an epic adventure in the rainforest of Costa Rica.

But it’s not just survival of the fittest, in Bear Grylls: Mission Survive, Bear is looking for much more from the eight celebrities. They will have to show a resilience and ability to endure hardships unlike anything they’ve experienced before. At the end of each programme Bear will eliminate one person. And at the end of the series, there will be three finalists and ultimately just one Mission Survivor.

Actors Emilia Fox and Laurence Fox, singer Max George, double Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes, TV presenter and singer Jamelia, comedy actor Tom Rosenthal, DJ, Model and presenter Vogue Williams and former England International rugby player Mike Tindall, make up the celebrity expedition team. Bear will also be assisted on the ground by his much trusted expedition leaders, mountain guide Meg Hine and former commando Scott Heffield.
