A Muslim man has walked out of Bear Grylls’s reality TV show after he became uncomfortable because the female contestants were wearing bikinis all the time.
Rizwan Shabir, a married father of three, will be seen leaving The Island tonight, saying he is ‘not used to living with women who are half-naked’.
The 27-year-old from Bradford, West Yorkshire described his time on the show as ‘the best thing and the worst thing’ he has ever done, after viewers saw emotional scenes of him breaking down in tears because he missed his family.
Several young women on the Channel 4 show have been shown wearing bikini tops while foraging for supplies and attempting to build a camp.
The current third series of The Island is the first time that men and women have been mixed together, after the first series was male-only and the second put men and women on separate islands.
