A Muslim man has quit The Island With Bear Grylls because being around women in bikinis is against his faith.
Contestant Rizwan Shabir, a mobile phone shop owner from Bradford, will be seen leaving Bear Grylls’ Channel 4 reality TV show tonight.
The father-of-three is seen struggling with his decision.

He says: “At the end of the day I am a Muslim – I’m not used to living with women who are half-naked. This is harder than what I thought it would be.
“Basically I’m around a group of women who are half-naked, which in my religion and culture I shouldn’t really be.”
