Bear Grylls finds out he’s related to Robert the Bruce

OHMYGOSSIP — Bear Grylls has discovered he is related to Robert the Bruce.
The 48-year-old adventurer admitted it was “epic” to find out he comes from royal lineage, after he discovered a connection to the King of Scots while travelling to Scotland to take part in an episode of BBC’s ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’, which will air in June.
Bear admitted he took part in the show for his mother, who was hoping they would be related to a royal.
He told the Radio Times magazine: “My mother has always really wanted me to do it, because she had hoped we were related to someone royal.
“She’s now 82 and my sister took me to one side and said ‘mate, you have to do it’.
“I have always loved Scotland, it’s where I met my wife Shara. As soon as I was told we were going to Scotland I thought that was awesome, because it’s where my heart has always been.”
Bear described Robert the Bruce, who defeated Edward II at the battle of Bannockburn in 1314, as “a clansman who rewrote the rules of conventional soldiering”.
He said: “He was an inspirational leader who spent time in the great outdoors, he came back transformed and renewed.
“It was epic for me to follow that, and to understand a connecting spirit through our lives.”
It took some convincing for Bear to sign up to the show after turning it down for over a decade.
He said: “I just didn’t want to do it. I don’t like doing TV and I didn’t have an aspiration to do the show.”
