BEAR Grylls' TV production company made a staggering £6.1million profit last year, latest accounts show. The survival expert's adrenaline-fuelled outdoor content generated a huge amount cash, and his financial success shows no signs of slowing down despite the coronavirus pandemic.
The Natural Studios Productions Limited was formed last year as a fusion of Bear's BGV Media Limited and the Banijay Group - the world's leading independent content producers.
Bear's biggest hit of 2019 was his special episode of Man Vs Wild with Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi. It saw the politician reflect on his life as he and Bear ventured into India's Jim Corbett National Park.
