Mike Tindall suffered head injury while on Bear Grylls: Mission Survive. The former English rugby player, who is married to Zara Phillips needed to be taken to the hospital by producers for the kind of injury in which he endured
The new survival programme sees eight celebrities accompanied by adventurer Bear Grylls travel through Central American rainforests, and the 40-year-old professional admitted there was one particularly gruesome moment for the former rugby captain when he sustained a deep gash after being hit by a piece of wood.
Recalling the incident, he said:
“I knew it was bad so we had to get him out of there.
“We had to get him to hospital where he needed to be stitched up.”
The thirty six year old received the treatment he needed to return back to the show.
Bear explained how the Olympic athlete almost drowned in a 300ft waterfall on one occasion while taking part in the mission, describing the moment as “touch and go”.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said:
“She started going under. That was a little bit touch and go.”
On Friday, February 20, 2015 the show will have it’s debut date at 9pm on ITV1.
