Bear Grylls

Bear Grylls has signed a £1m deal to pen some thrillers, and such is the confidence of the man, he reckons Dan Ranger, an "ex-SAS, ecologist and adventurer extraordinaire" and one of the ‘survival expert’s’ characters - will combine the "best of Bond, Bourne and Indiana Jones".

This will be Grylls’ first foray into novel writing, and will see Ranger “embark upon a ground-breaking expedition – one with quest-like, historical detective overtones – working out of his corporate and charitable headquarters aboard the MV Global Challenger".

Bear Grylls Scares Londoners As Battersea Power Station Appears Ablaze


Bear Grylls

For his latest stunt – not something you usually say about a survival expert – Bear Grylls abseiled down a seemingly on-fire Battersea Power Station, one of London’s most iconic buildings. But his special effects team were so…effective, they managed to alert the authorities who arrived to find a false alarm.

The London Fire Brigade said it was called at 19:50 BST and realised it was a false alarm on reaching the site. A fire service spokesman said: "We attended and as soon as we got there we realised it wasn't an incident for us. But we take every call seriously." (BBC)

Bear Grylls

If you don’t know what Bear Grylls is famous for, then let us explain: drinking his own faeces, wrestling alligators, sleeping on the sides of mountains and wearing snakes appear all on in curriculum vitae. Now, though, he’s going to be taking novices out in the wild to teach him his ways.

“I’ve always got such a kick out of seeing people’s growth and seeing people’s confidence build. They start off really nervous and then you empower them with good survival skills,” Grylls explains of his new show. “We just take 20 regular guys—not experts, just regular people who have amazing stories—and throw them into the wild and test them a bit and teach them along the way.

Bear Grylls says Kate Middleton is an “Incredible Role Model” for The Scouts


Kate Middleton Bear Grylls

It’s not only kids that can don the scout uniform and start collecting those elusive badges, you know; adults can too! Since Kate Middleton, 31, joined the Scouts last year, more than 2,800 new adult volunteers have joined up, representing the second biggest rise since 1986.

Chief Scout, TV star Bear Grylls, who was present as the pregnant Middleton honoured the achievements of hundreds of Scouts at Windsor Castle, said: "The Duchess is an incredible role model and she helps us show that Scouting's not just for boys. She's also such a generous volunteer and everyone is so excited to have her in the Scouting family. Many people have followed her lead and are getting involved and enjoying the adventure." 17-year-old Lee Craven, from Hook, Hampshire was one of the more adventurous scouts honoured at the event. He helped drag a friend from an icy canal after he fell in in the dark. Lee said: "I hooked my feet under a tree stump and tried to reach for his hand. It was pitch black but I managed to pull him to the side to safety. It was quite easy because of the adrenalin."

PHOTOS - Skyfall Premiere Red Carpet Report: Plunging Necklines And Patriotic Pantaloons


Kelly Brook Tamara Ecclestone Bear Grylls Daniel Craig Naomie Harris

Last night, the Royal Premiere of the latest James Bond movie, Skyfall took place at London’s Royal Albert Hall. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first ever James Bond movie, so last night, the stars were out in force and the red carpet provided almost as much of a spectacle as the movie itself.

In the battle of the plunging necklines, Kelly Brook triumphed, despite fierce competition from Tamara Ecclestone. Kelly wore a glittering floor length dress; a classic design that would have looked fitting on any red carpet, for any Bond movie over the last half a century. She wore her loose and accessorised with a cream-coloured clutch bag and bold red lipstick, looking effortlessly glamorous. Ecclestone, meanwhile, stopped out in a daring, long – sleeved emerald green dress with subtle leopard print, with a neckline that sunk almost to her waistline. The result was certainly eye catching and may have had some people wondering which cost more... the dress, or the cleavage?

Bear Grylls Sets Up Camp On NBC With 'Get Out Alive'


Bear Grylls

Six months after leaving the Discovery Channel, Bear Grylls has signed up to front a new reality show for NBC, titled 'Get Out Alive.' The fearless adventurer will host the show that features two teams attempting to survive in the wild, reports the Los Angeles Times.

NBC has given the green light to the series, ordering eight episodes and setting aside a prime-slot slot for next summer. In a statement announcing the deal, Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming at NBC, said, "To meet Bear is to meet a force of nature. He is a magnetic and charismatic talent, whose infectious enthusiasm for adventure inspires people to push themselves beyond their limits. These contestants are in for the ride of their lives!" Though the creative details of 'Get Out Alive' are yet to be revealed, it's likely the teams will be dropped in some remote spot in the Sahara or the Antarctic and forced to do whatever it takes to survive!

Though Grylls has established himself as a popular television personality, he arrives at NBC on the back of controversy. He raised eyebrows in 2006 when it emerged his show 'Man vs Wild' was misleading viewers about some of the situations in which Grylls found himself in. Earlier this year, The Hollywood Reporter reported how the Discovery Channel terminated his contract after he refused to participate in two projects he was contracted for.



New 'Survivor' Style Reality Show Planned For Bear Grylls


Bear Grylls

Bear Grylls hasn't always had it easy in the United States, but the British explorer and survival expert is back on his feet again in the country after it was revealed by The Hollywood Reporter that his new show Get Out Alive (a working title) will take on a reality format that will test two teams of people in what we presume is going to be a set of physical and endurance challenges surrounded by the harsh climes of nature. The Hollywood Reporter are describing it as a Survivor-style program and it's been picked up by NBC for eight episodes.

"To meet Bear is to meet a force of nature," Paul Telegdy, NBC alternative president, said in a statement. "He is a magnetic and charismatic talent, whose infectious enthusiasm for adventure inspires people to push themselves beyond their limits. These contestants are in for the ride of their lives!" Grylls added: "Get Out Alive will be raw, tough and unrelenting, but it will also inspire and teach the essentials that one day may just save your life. The goal is to empower people with the ultimate in both survival and teamwork, and that brings incredible reward... but first there must be some pain."

Grylls had been on the network Discovery since 2006 with his show . His relationship with them ended badly last March though after it was alleged he was taking too long getting working on two unannounced projects for them.


Bear Grylls Breaks Shoulder After Antarctic Fall


Bear Grylls Channel 4

Television adventurer Bear Grylls has suffered a broken shoulder while taking part in a charitable expedition in Antarctica.

The 34-year-old presenter fell while climbing an ice mountain on a trip to promote the use of alternative energies as bio-fuels.

Details of the accident have not been confirmed but the former SAS soldier is thought to have been airlifted to safety.

The father-of-two will be treated in South Africa - a seven-hour flight away from Antarctica - before returning to the UK, it is believed.

A spokesman for the Channel 4 wild man confirmed Grylls was "in a lot of pain".

"He is calm and collected - but in pain," he was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying.

"It is par for the course for the sort of thing that Bear does - this was a dangerous trip."

A statement from the Discovery Channel - for whom Grylls presents the Man vs Wild show - confirmed he had been taking part in an expedition for Ethanol Ventures to promote the potential of alternative energies like bioethanol.

"Bear has a strong religious faith and a loving family to help speed his recovery," the network said.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Bear as he makes the long trip back to the UK."

Grylls' programmes - which typically see him stranded in remote areas - attracted controversy last year after it was admitted that some segments had been cleverly edited.

Channel 4 later apologised for misleading audiences and said all future programmes would be "100 per cent transparent", adding: "All elements of the filming will be explained upfront to our viewers."
