ONE of Channel 4’s most popular shows is looking for participants from the Scottish Borders to take part in the sixth series of The Island With Bear Grylls.

Producers are looking for contestants over 18 to get involved, where they will be stripped of the all their creature comforts and cast away on a remote, deserted island - but this year there will be a prize involved.

A spokesman for the show said: "We are looking for people who are fit and able to participate, of all ages (18 plus), each with their unique skillset, from a variety of backgrounds and professions who are confident in their ability to thrive but they do not need any experience in adventure or survival pursuits to participate.

"We will cover reasonable pre-agreed loss of earnings for everyone who participates."
