HIS TV shows have seen him travel all over the planet, which might explain why Bear Grylls’ next mission sees him out of this world.
The survival expert’s new project is taking five Scouts to camp on the surface of the International Space Station.

The group will be filmed as they spend 12 hours in specially developed tents and sealed sleeping bags pumped with oxygen.
Chief Scout Bear said: “The Explorer Scouts will need to show the true spirit of Scouting – resilience, teamwork and resourcefulness – if they are to pass the intensive selection process.
“But by reaching for the stars, we hope to prove that Scouts truly can do anything.”
The project will take two years to develop and the troupe’s “camp out” is set to take place on April 1, 2021.

The Scouts will spend a total of two weeks on the Space station and the Scouts have confirmed that the ‘nights away’ paperwork has already been completed.
The ‘Space Scouts’ as they have been dubbed, will train both here in the UK and in the United States, before travelling to Cape Canaveral for final checks.
But Bear fans won’t need to wait too long to see him. He stars in interactive survival show You Vs Wild on Netflix from April 10, where viewers decide Bear’s next moves.
