Braving the elements with Bear Grylls

If your idea of an ideal holiday is being stranded on a desert island, braving the elements in monsoon season, and having to hunt for your every meal - then The Island may be for you.

We caught up with him to find out why he took up the challenge.

The second season of the Bear Grylls' survival series continues Monday April 12, on Channel 4 at 9pm.
