Which celebs are tough enough for Bear Grylls: Mission Survive?

Neil Morrissey, Chelsee Healey and Stuart Pearce all reckon they can handle a gruelling 12-day trek through punishing terrain. Will they make it out alive?

In theory, a programme like Bear Grylls: Mission Survive should attract the highest calibre of celebrity. Unlike Big Brother or I’m a Celebrity, it’s more than just a popularity contest. Unlike Strictly, there’s no strange systemic need to sex everyone up for the dads. And unlike The Jump, you know that people aren’t watching purely to see you ruin your spine on a rock. Besides, this is Bear Grylls. His famous friends are legendary. He’s had Channing Tatum and Kate Winslet on his show. He’s had Barack Obama on his show, for crying out loud. The man knows how to book.

Then again, if you watched the first series of Mission Survive last year, you might know enough to modulate your expectations a little.

Grylls said: "I'm so proud of Mission Survive and all it stands for: endeavour, comradeship and overcoming fears.

"For me it is about understanding that sometimes we have to go through genuine adversity to come out the other side better, stronger and more empowered.

The former English rugby player - who is married to Britain's Queen Elizabeth's eldest grandchild, Zara Phillips - revealed he loved taking part in the survival series in the rainforest of Costa Rica because he found the challenges of eating creepy crawlies to be ''interesting''.

Vogue Williams wins Bear Grylls: Mission Survive

The ITV reality competition concluded tonight (April 3), with Bear Grylls crowning Williams victorious after 12 days in the jungle.

Mission Survive's Vogue Williams: 'I'd rather eat rats than drink wee'

The four-part final competition began with Grylls challenging all three finalists to climb down a massive 300-foot rock face into a ravine.

Tindall and Williams were able to complete the difficult task without any major trouble, but Olympian Holmes's fear of water caused her to nearly drown.

Although Holmes was able to descend the rock successfully, Grylls's assistant Scott Heffield had to rescue her when she began flailing in the ravine.

"That looked nasty," Grylls admitted as he watched Heffield drag Holmes to shore.

Mission Survive's Vogue Williams: 'I'd rather eat rats than drink wee'

We're not sure if there will be a second series of Bear Grylls: Mission Survive yet, but golly, if there is, any celebrities signing up would have to be pretty brave indeed! The first series - which comes to an end on Friday (April 3) - has seen the famous faces involved getting wet, cold, miserable, ill and, of course, drinking their own pee.

Now just three are still standing for the final - Kelly Holmes, Mike Tindall and Vogue Williams. We caught up with Vogue to celebrate her getting so far and chatted about her hardest moments, eating rat lollipops, why her husband Brian McFadden probably wouldn't do as well on the show, and which stars she'd love to see taking on the jungle...

Vogue on... how things could possibly have been worse.

"I'm glad I wasn't afraid of water or heights, because I think those things would have been really hard.

Watch Emilia Fox get swept away in Bear Grylls: Mission Survive

Emilia Fox gets swept away and Jamelia has had enough in tonight's (March 6) Bear Grylls: Mission Survive.

The celebrities have to make their way down a set of rapids in Friday's episode, and tensions run high after Grylls is forced to dive in to save Silent Witness's Fox.

Fox was attempting to grab Jamelia's bag when she slipped in and was taken down the river.

The pressures of the jungle are too much for Jamelia too. After a tropical storm and torrential rain, the singer makes it clear she wants out.

She says: "I don't want to do this anymore…I clearly don't get on with them, one of them spoke to me like I was a piece of s**t... I can't do this."

The jungle is also too much for Lewis actor Laurence Fox to handle. He is found walking round the camp at 3am in a 'sense of delirium'.

See Max George have a bath in new Bear Grylls: Mission Survive photos

Max George cleans up and Vogue Williams gets dirty in newly-released pictures from tonight's (February 27) Bear Grylls: Mission Survive.

The celebrities have to make their way through a ravine in Friday's episode, and tensions run high without Bear Grylls around to help.

Grylls does make an appearance as he helps Williams apply mud to her body to repel bugs, while also feeding the group live scorpions.

Jamelia is none too pleased with the prospect of having to chomp on a dangerous insect, while George seems much more relaxed as he takes a quick bath.

Contestants will also have to manoeuvre their way down a dangerous waterfall, with the reward being an opportunity to drink their own urine.

All of the action leads up to the first celebrity being eliminated – but who will it be?

Bear Grylls: Mission Survive airs tonight at 9pm on ITV.
