Bear Grylls’ Man vs Wild days appear to be over

Bear Grylls’ days spent building ramshackle shelters and eating rotting sheep intestines appear to be over.

The Man vs Wild star has reportedly been fired from the popular and long-running show by the Discovery Channel over a contract dispute.

The Hollywood Reporter suggested Grylls, 37, was fired for refusing to star in two unannounced shows he was contracted for.

“Due to a continuing contractual dispute with Bear Grylls, Discovery has terminated all current productions with him,” a network spokesperson told the website.

Seven seasons of Man vs Wild have aired since 2006, with Grylls pitting his skills in various locations around the world.

Each episode features Grylls taking on dangerous stunts, sleeping in the wild and eating something disgusting – usually some kind of dead animal.

Recently, the former British soldier featured several celebrities on the show, including actor Jake Gyllenhaal and comedian Will Ferrell.

The most recent season featured Grylls in New Zealand, showing off his survival skills in the South Island.
