BUDDING daredevils who fancy themselves as a survivor are being invited to audition for the latest series of hit TV show The Island with Bear Grylls.

With bosses already planning series four of the programme which sees contestants stranded on a desert island with no resources, Solihull residents are being called upon to put their name forward and tackle an experience of a lifetime.

Stripped of 21st century comforts, the programme has received rave reviews – and the fourth series will see filming take place on a new ‘island’.

In previous series, volunteers were cast away on a remote desert island while filming what they got up to with two cameras – capturing every moment during the adventure.

Bosses are now looking for men and women of all ages (18+) to take part, no experience of adventure or survival pursuits is necessary.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to survive The Island, email applyisland@shine.tv by Sunday (August 7) with your name, contact details and explain why you’d like to be a part of the programme.
