Participants wanted for the Channel 4 show The Island with Bear Grylls

If the nearest you get to outdoor life is sitting on the terrace at Dukes, and ‘foraging for food’ means rummaging in the bargain shelf in Waitrose, this may not be for you.

Channel 4’s show The Island with Bear Grylls is looking for people to take part in the next series.

In previous series, the volunteers were stripped of all 21st-century comforts and cast away on a remote, deserted island. They filmed themselves and shared their story of survival. This year there is also a prize.

A Channel 4 spokesperson said: “We are looking for men and women who are fit and able to participate, of all ages (18+), each with their unique skillset, from a variety of backgrounds and professions who are confident in their ability to thrive but they do not need any experience in adventure or survival pursuits to participate.

You may also want to watch:

“We would imagine that everyone who participates will each bring different life experiences. Some people may have certain skills which could prove useful in a survival situation, such as the ability to build a bed or a shelter.

“We will cover reasonable pre-agreed loss of earnings for everyone who participates.”
