The 38-year-old Olympic boxer joined the adventurer for a weekend in Dartmoor back in December, and although the conditions were "pretty tough", she was "game for everything" the 46-year-old star threw at her.

A source told The Sun newspaper : “Nicola jumped at the chance to spend 48 hours in the wild with Bear. They filmed the show in Dartmoor and it was pretty tough going given the wet weather. Nicola is a great sportswoman and was game for everything Bear threw at her.

"The premise of the show is not only to teach the stars how to survive in the wild but also to show a different side to them. Bear is a great interviewer as well as an adventurer and he got a lot out of Nicola. It’s going to be a really great watch.”

Bear first aired 'Wild Weekends' in 2011, which saw him take stars like Miranda Hart and Jonathan Ross out of their comfort zone by living in inhospitable conditions for 48 hours.

Bear also recently filmed an episode with Jonny Wilkinson and the pair had heaps to talk about during their wet and windy weekend.

A source previously revealed: "Jonny signed up to take part in 'Wild Weekends' earlier this year and his stint with Bear was a triumph. Jonny’s a hugely interesting character and he and Bear had a huge amount to talk about. It was quite emotional at times and really celebrated all that Jonny had achieved during his career.

"Bear knows how to get the best out of people, all while pushing them to their physical and mental limits. They filmed together in Dartmoor and it was pretty tough out there, given how cold it was.

"But everyone working on the show was really happy about the result and it was clear Jonny loved every second of being out in the wild with Bear.

"You’d think some sportsmen might be a bit pampered, but not Jonny. He was ready for anything and game to give everything a go."
