Bear Goes Bare! Bear Grylls Accidentally Flashes Privates On Instagram Live
Awkward! Wilderness survivalist Bear Grylls accidentally bared all when he seemed to begin recording an Instagram live stream a tad too early.
Wearing nothing but his socks, the 45-year-old shocked viewers when he dived stark naked into a lake for a bit of skinny dipping -- seemingly not realising the blunder until much later, as the stream remained on his account for some time before it was deleted.
However, Bear is no stranger to getting in his birthday suit, with the adventure-seeker previously telling Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan in 2014 about how he proposed to wife Shara while nude.
"I pulled out the ring from my butt cheeks," he told the stunned host at the time.
"She was standing there going 'what are you doing?' She was in a towel and a massive Atlantic roller came and I went, 'will you' – and it went – took me up the beach.
"I had all the seaweed and I was spinning around, so I tried it again, and in this sort of moment of heavy sedation, she said yes," he continued, adding, "If there’s a substantial body of water around and nobody’s looking, I’m often quite tempted to strip off and dive in."
It's also not the first time he's accidentally flashed his bits, having previously said he once gave TV star Dermot O’Leary an eyeful before skinny dipping in the ocean.
"We own this little island in north Wales and there's a great cliff jump into the sea and I do this every morning to be honest when I'm up there and before anyone's out," he explained on Life Stories.
"But the thing is with this photograph, I looked at it on my iPhone and when I texted it looked fine, sent it to him. And actually, if you do blow it up, you can just see the end of what I didn't realise was visible so -- yes, that's the danger of small screens on iPhones," he continued.
"Can I say it was an incredibly cold winter's day a week ago."
