World adventurer Bear Grylls returns to screens with a new series of The Island, but this time there will be a cash prize at stake.
Treasure Island with Bear Grylls will be a six-part series that will see 12 strangers stranded on a remote island with hidden riches up for grabs.
Under the watchful eye of Bear Grylls, the islanders will battle for survival against mother nature and each other for a treasure of £100,000.
Pushed to their limits, the contestants won’t just need to find the loot but will also need last to the end of the show, or risk leaving empty-handed.
The revamped reality show will allow the islanders to cooperate, but with money involved can anyone be trusted?
“This radical new twist on the Island experience will test whether human nature really is ruled by the quest for financial gain or whether co-operation and altruism in the face of adversity can bring their own reward,” commented Bear Grylls.
Ian Dunkley, commissioner for Channel 4, added: “After five successful series, it feels like now is the right time to reinvent the format – and this fascinating new twist promises to shake things up in unpredictable ways."
Treasure Island with Bear Grylls will air on Channel 4 later in 2019.
