The star of Lord of the Rings and Lost is taking on his most dangerous project to date - a documentary series in which he tracks down some of the scariest creatures on the planet.

Going Wild with Dominic Monaghan follows the actor as he travels the world in search of potentially deadly snakes, centipedes, scorpions, lizards, ants and wasps.

He told BBC Breakfast that he wanted to debunk the "myths" about the animals and their habitats, to prove that "there's nothing dangerous about going to these places."
