The 6 x 60-minute series – which premieres in the UK on February 20 – is co-produced by Electus, Bear Grylls Ventures and betty. The program is set in the Costa Rican rainforest and follows eight celebrities competing in a 12-day expedition where they must complete daily survival missions.

One celebrity is eliminated in each episode, ultimately leaving three finalists vying for the Mission Survivor title.
