It would see celebrities pitted against survival expert Bear, 49, and would be Holly’s first major TV role after leaving This Morning.
A source said: ‘Bear is working with a production company for Netflix. They want Holly to host.
‘A group of celebrities will be put into a jungle where they will have to tackle a series of challenges.
‘If they lose, they’ll have to pit their wits against Bear, who will be hunting them down.’

The insider added to The Sun that Bear is ‘totally on board’ and ‘accomplished host’ Holly is in the sights of production bosses.
The 42-year-old has previously fronted I’m A Celebrity, stepping in for Ant McPartlin in 2018.
She’s now making a return to ITV with the new series of Dancing On Ice, after weeks of speculation over who would be hosting.
It was confirmed that she’ll be back alongside Stephen Mulhern, 46, who replaces original co-host Phillip Schofield, 61, after he resigned from ITV in full and admitted his ‘unwise but not illegal’ affair with a younger runner.

New images recently showed Holly posing alongside Stephen for the first time after keeping a low profile for weeks.
Joining them will be a stellar cast of celebs taking to the ice, including Ryan Thomas, Adele Roberts, Greg Rutherford, and Amber Davies, alongside judging panel Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean, as well as Ashley Banjo and Oti Mabuse.
Metro.co.uk has approached reps for Holly and Bear, and Netflix, for comment.
Dancing On Ice 2024 launches on Sunday, January 14 at 6.30pm on ITV and ITVX.
