Chris' mother death

Chris applied for the show following the death of his mother who died just four months before he flew out to the island.

"Being on the Shipwrecked island was amazing therapy," he explained.

"She died four months before I went and while I was out there, I felt I was so close to her. It did help my grieving process."

Meanwhile, Chris says going on the show was something that gave him the chance to explore life outside of the city.

He said: "I wanted a break from everything and I wanted to get out of London and do something really random! It came at exactly the right time.

"I hadn’t watched theshow before but I had heard really good things about the show. I think my dad probably stopped me watching it. It was not PG at the time! A friend of mine also thought it would be good for me."
