Leap of faith: Bear Grylls

TV adventurer Bear Grylls has said he relies heavily on his faith as he does not feel he is strong enough on his own.

"I try to start every day by kneeling down and saying, 'Lord Jesus, I ain't got it all right, and I'm nervous about today," he said.

"I will give it my all, but will you help me? It's never more complicated than that. I probably don't go to church enough, but my faith is a quiet, strong backbone in my life, and the glue to our family."

Grylls, who was born in Donaghadee, Co Down, recently embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime mission with US President Barack Obama. Obama ventured into the Alaskan wilderness with Grylls for a TV programme exploring the impact climate change is having on the environment.
