Bear Grylls’ Treasure Island line-up revealed as a 75-year-old great-gran and Prince Philip's cousin compete for £100k

BEAR Grylls’s survival show returns this September with a new line up of contestants – including a former reality star, a 75 year old great-grandma and a cousin of Prince Philip all taking part.

The show, renamed Treasure Island with Bear Grylls because Islanders compete for a £100,000 prize, will be back on TV next month.

The survival show will see the 12 Brits marooned on the island for 35 days and left to find their own food, shelter and water.

They also have to compete – or work together – to find the cash prize, which has been dropped onto the island. And if they go home early, they get nothing.

The Sun Online’s exclusive picture shows, they’re all in it to win it – but who will make it through the full 35 days and win the reward?
