Holly Willoughby is set to present a new Netflix series with Bear Grylls where celebrities must avoid being hunted down by the adventurer.

Bear Hunt will be released next year and it will see celebrities be dropped into the Central American jungle and become prey to survival expert Grylls.

Grylls, 49, will put the famous faces through their paces and competitors who fail to impress him will face the Bear Hunt – a game of cat and mouse in which they will be eliminated if they are captured.

The camp has been created specially for the show and while the celebrities will be in the jungle together, they won’t be alone.

Celebrities are being warned about the venomous snakes, bats that could spread rabies, spiders and more that will remain in their habitats in the Costa Rican jungle during the show, The Sun reports.

A source told the newspaper: “The Bear Hunt is not for the faint hearted and all the celebrities who have signed up know they’re going to be heading into the wild where it’s teeming with animal nasties.

“As well as snakes like the venomous hog-nosed pit viper and spiders like the black widow and brown recluse, the jungle is also teeming with bats which can spread rabies.

“Naturally every precaution possible has been put in place by Netflix to ensure the safety of everyone working on the show, from the crew to the celebrities, but it’s a show which isn’t for the faint hearted.”
