Ah sure would you look who's back in The Discovery Channel's good books! Manly man Bear Grylls had a bit of a falling out with Discovery Networks a few years back but now the survival expert is set to return with Bear Grylls: Ultimate Survivors.

Deadline reports that it will be a new six-part series in which the man himself tells the stories of ordinary people who managed to survive some incredibly dire situations. And of course it wouldn't be a Bear Grylls show if he didn't go and make things a little bit dangerous by putting himself in the same scenarios. So long as he sticks to drinking water this time we'll live.

Grylls says he's "super excited" to be back in partnership with Discovery, who are "thrilled to welcome Bear back to the Discovery fold". Ultimate Survivors will air in at least 217 countries across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Keep your eyes peeled for this one.
