Ten brave celebrities have signed up for the ultimate survival challenge in aid of Channel 4′s Stand Up To Cancer.

That challenge? Taking on The Island with Bear Grylls in a special four-part series. Yikes.

The ten famous faces, including The Only Way Is Essex star Lydia Bright, JLS singer Aston Merrygold and former Blue Peter presenter Zoe Salmon, gave up their showbiz lifestyles for two weeks in an intense Island experience.

Made in Chelsea’s Ollie Locke, comedian Dom Joly, The Hotel star Mark Jenkins, rugby ace Thom Evans, Channel 4′s Dr Dawn Harper, former Labour councillor Karen Danczuk and comedian Josie Long made up the famous group.

Aiming to survive with just the clothes on their back, basic tools, medical supplies and 24 hours-worth of water, the ten celebrities made the island their home as they tackled the task head on.

The special survival challenge will air as part of Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK’s joint fundraising campaign, Stand Up To Cancer, this October.

If that wasn’t enough, Stand Up To Cancer has also teamed up with Bear Grylls Survival Race for a huge fundraising challenge designed by Bear himself, with a series of mud runs, obstacle races and of course, survivial tests.
