UNDATED (USA Today) -- The relationship is over. Discovery is done with Bear Grylls.

The channel said Tuesday that "due to a continuing contractual dispute with Bear Grylls, Discovery has terminated all current productions with him," reports Reuters.

Grylls, 37, who has eaten insects and drunk his own urine, has hosted his Man vs. Wild show since 2006.

A spokesman for Grylls told Reuters he and Discovery had been unable to reach agreement on new programming and had parted ways. Heather Krug, Grylls' rep, says her client "disagrees with Discovery's decision to terminate current productions. Bear has loved the Man vs. Wild journey and looks forward to producing further cutting-edge content again soon for his loyal audience."

The most recent season of Man Vs. Wild was broadcast on Discovery in July and August and featured Jake Gyllenhaal.
