Producers are looking for applicants to take part in the new series of Channel 4’s The Island with Bear Grylls.

The show – hosted by Bear, who grew up on the Isle of Wight – has become a huge hit in recent years.

In previous series, the volunteers were stripped of all the comforts of civilisation, and cast away on a remote deserted island.

Producers of the show are looking for people 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.

The closing date for applications is Monday, October 8.
