Bear Grylls: Mission Survive

Published: Tue 23 Feb 2016

Seven celebrities battle through the wilds of Southern Africa on an uncompromising 12 day survival expedition. They are pushed to their psychological and physical limits to see who has the heroic qualities needed to become Bear’s Mission Survivor. 
 
In Bear Grylls: Mission Survive, Les Miserables actress Samantha Barks, former Coronation Street actress Michelle Collins, choreographer and Dancing on Ice judge Jason Gardiner, Casualty actress Chelsee Healey, Grantchester actor Neil Morrissey, ex England footballer and coach Stuart Pearce MBE and Arsenal and England Ladies footballer Alex Scott, are put under extreme pressure by the adventurer and survival expert to see what they are made of. 
 
This year the expedition team confronted more terrifying challenges than ever before: surviving dangerous animals, facing a dizzying arsenal of high-octane survival scenarios and travelling further across the mountains and down to the coast. Combined with ever changing weather conditions – from the harsh African sun to torrential rain and bitterly cold nights – this journey is the toughest Bear has ever set for celebrity survival rookies.
