    Bear Grylls Mission Survive starts tonight on ITV. It features eight celebrities facing a 12-day survival mission unlike anything they’ve ever experienced before.

    For the celebrities to stay alive they must learn to navigate difficult terrain, build shelter, make fire and eat food that nature provides.

    From abseiling down ferocious waterfalls, crossing perilous rapids, trudging through swamps and eating rats and scorpions; this is an epic adventure in the rainforest of Costa Rica.

    In tonight’s show one the expedition team are transported from their lodgings in a helicopter to a rainforest clearing at the foot of Arenal Volcano. It’s here the mission will start; testing their resolve, resilience and spirit.

    The celebrities will have to first drop out of a helicopter into the middle of an algae covered lake before swimming to the bank and then trekking through the jungle to a clearing, to be met by Bear.

    Bear Grylls: Mission Survive starts tonight at 9pm on ITV.
