Bear Grylls Treasure Island cast lost TWENTY stone between them after almost starving to death

The Sun Lifestyle 2 months ago

BEAR Grylls Treasure Island contestants  lost a huge twenty stone between them on their six weeks on the island.

The nine contestants – the tenth, Ruby, left after four days – lost the huge amount of weight as they almost starved to death after failing to find food on the island.

Viewers watched as the castaways struggled to find a clean water source, then kill a goat, as they battled each other to find £10,000.

And while plumber Jack managed to kill a seabird with a machete and an iguana to feed the camp, food then ran out as chief meal-hunters Marco and Ivar became more concerned with finding the boxes of cash around the camp – and not dinner.

Writer Elissa claimed at one point that they were “starving to death” and members of the camp struggled to stand up.

Several fishing expeditions failed – meaning the cast were left lying around fantasising about fish and chips and Nandos.

The islanders were surviving off coconuts and winkle soup – until Morag and 75 year old Irene managed to trap and kill an iguana last episode – saving the camp from running out of food.

A show insider told us: “The weight dropped off them without three meals a day – plus the constant walking and swimming.”

Channel 4 confirmed that the cast lost twenty stone between them.

Viewers were outraged when Ben decided to solve the dehydration problem early on – but drinking his own urine.

The show returns to Channel 4 tonight at 9pm.
