Hit Channel 4 series The Island with Bear Grylls returns, but this time there’s a twist. For the first time there’s money at stake and it’s everyone for themselves.
The reimagined series - Treasure Island with Bear Grylls - will once again see 12 ordinary Brits marooned for 35 days on a remote tropical island, battling for their survival. But this time £100,000 in cash - dropped across the island - is up for grabs.
The Islanders will not only have to 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 leave with nothing. Only those who make it to the very end, can keep their share of any money they find.
Will the Islanders work together to increase their chances? Or try to go it alone, and ditch those who are perceived to be weakest? When they are stripped of modern-day comforts will money lose its meaning? Five thousand miles from home will the cash bring them together? Or tear them apart? Whatever happens, this adventure promises to be one of the most extraordinary chapters in these islanders’ lives.
