The Island with Bear Grylls 6

Being marooned on a tropical island sounds like the stuff of dreams; but in this series, it's more of a living nightmare.

In a battle against nature and each other, 12 strangers are abandoned for a month on a remote Pacific Ocean island, fighting for survival under the watchful eye of adventurer, Bear Grylls.

But it's not just survival of the fittest: £100,000 in cash is hidden across this remote island, and it's there for the taking - if they can find it.

The islanders must not only survive the forces of nature but will be pushed to their physical and mental limits as they endeavour to find the 'treasure'.

And just finding it isn't enough: if they leave early, they will leave with nothing.

Only those who make it to the very end can keep their share of any loot they find.
