Bear Grylls 'wouldn't think twice' about eating human flesh

Bear Grylls swung through the windows of ITV's This Morning on Friday 13 February Bear Grylls swung through the windows of ITV's This Morning on Friday 13 February The survivalist said he "wouldn't think twice" about turning to cannibalism.
