The trailer for the much-anticipated Irish episode of Bear Grylls’ Running Wild which features Courteney Cox has been released.

Courteney (52) joined Bear Grylls in the wilds of Kerry last month for filming, and in this just-released trailer, Bear and Courteney discuss what they might be able to have for dinner.

“We’re also looking for dinner... I could give you the Irish menu. Birds if you can catch em, worms (lots of), bugs, grubs, insects, flies, crickets, caterpillars,” Bear tells Courteney?

“What are grubs?” a worried Courteney asks.

“Ooooh I thought you meant like grass or something... I’m comfortable eating... I would rather eat grass than any of the things you just named.”

“I’m talking about any of this stuff, except for this pine-y thing, that might hurt going down.”

Grylls has previously said that Cox was none too impressed when she eventually had to eat a scrotum full of maggots after they found a sheep carcass.

"She had tears pouring down her cheeks and I said, 'Welcome to Ireland, this is what it's like'.

"She emailed me since and I think she's got a bit of post-traumatic stress going on.

"I found this rotting sheep carcass and I thought, 'Oh, good, I can give her some lamb'. I stuck the knife in and maggots exploded out. The blood drained from her face."

However, Grylls, who was born in Donaghadee, Co Down, insisted the Cougar Town star faced the challenge like a true professional.

The 42-year-old adventurer is bringing his arena tour Endeavour to Dublin's 3Arena and has promised a spectacular show for his Irish fans.

It arrives in the capital on Wednesday, October 19.
