Bear Grylls would eat his own pet.
The 40-year-old adventurer has revealed if there were nothing else left on earth for him to eat he wouldn't think twice about cooking his family pet and consuming it in order to survive.
Asked if he would consider eating his pet if an apocalypse had wiped out all other sources of food, he exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Yeah I would eat the pet. The thing is it's true. I'll put it like this for you, would I eat the pet? The answer is yes because, ultimately, if my kids were going to starve I would make them eat the pet, of course."
The 'Bear Grylls: Mission Survive' star went on to reveal he'd even tell his children Jesse, Marmaduke and Huckleberry to eat him if he believed there was no other way they could survive.
He continued: "I actually would even make them eat me. If we were all going to die, I'd make them eat me. I would do anything to keep my kids alive."
Meanwhile, Bear confessed he avoids telling his wife Shara about the disgusting things he drinks and eats while teaching people how to survive on his TV programmes - including his own urine, animal faeces and raw goat's testicles - because it stops her from being affectionate with him.
Quizzed on whether she's ever had to leave the room while watching one of his shows, Bear admitted: "Yeah, there have definitely been a few moments where I've gone, 'Oh, let's see what's on the other channel'. I've learnt not to tell her a huge amount of stuff on that side of things. She goes, 'Do you eat anything weird when you're away?' And I go, 'No [shakes head]'. So yeah, I work on minimal information otherwise I'd never get kissed!"
'Bear Grylls: Mission Survive' kicks off on Friday February 20 at 9pm on ITV.
