Adventurer Bear accidentally bared all in a text to showbiz buddy Dermot O'Leary, causing some embarrassment. The broadcaster - who has starred in several survival shows including 'The Island' - told Piers Morgan he sent a nude picture of himself to the presenter before skinny-dipping in the sea off Wales. Appearing on his Life Stories show tonight, he said: "We own this little island in north Wales and there's a great cliff jump into the sea and I do this every morning to be honest when I'm up there and before anyone's out.
And actually if you do blow it up, you can just see the end of what I didn't realise was visible so - yes, that's the danger of small screens on iPhones. Grylls, who also proposed to his wife while swimming naked, admitted: "If there's a substantial body of water around and nobody's looking, I'm often quite tempted to strip off and dive in.
The Island with Bear Grylls' has received almost 40, applications in the space of a day from people who want to take part in the second series. The series, in which a group of men go back to nature to cope with the rigours of life as a hunter-gatherer on a desert island, has proved a popular draw with more than three million viewers.
A second run was commissioned in May - showing men having to use their practical skills to survive for 28 days on a deserted island while exhausted, dehydrated and hungry, as a film crew - facing the same conditions - captured footage. That's a wrap!
