He probably wouldn’t have said this to President Barack Obama when he took him up a mountain.

But Bear Grylls has warned celebrities they may not return alive from his new show.

His adventure series Mission Survive, which sees famous faces go up against the elements and each other, is back for its second series from Thursday – and Bear has vowed it will claim even more broken bones than Channel 4’s The Jump.

The 41-year-old survivalist told the Daily Star newspaper: “We can’t force people into jumping off jumps. Our danger is the environment we go into.

“There are cliffs, rivers, snakes and scorpions and I’m not joking when I say if a scorpion stings you then you will die.

“The coast of Africa is riddled with sharks and I told the celebrities going into the water there, ‘Don’t build a raft that will collapse’.

“Two hours later they’re all swimming and the raft has broken up. I’ve got to get in there and drag them out in a hurry.”

Bear added in an interview with the Radio Times magazine: “There’s no doubt that our shows, across the board, are the most dangerous shows on TV.

“There’s a hell of a lot of danger all the time, it’s the nature of it with cliffs, rivers, snakes and sharks everywhere. You’ve got to be on it. But we pride ourselves on the fact that we get things right and we look after people.”

In 2015 actor Laurence Fox was forced to pull out of the show due to trench foot, while Loose Women star Jamelia struggled with the elements.

This year ex-England footballer Stuart Pearce is joined by actors including Neil Morrissey and former EastEnders star Michelle Collins.

Mission Survive With Bear Grylls is on Thursday nights at 9pm on ITV.
