SAS: Who Dares Wins is airing its first celebrity special – who is on the line up of contestants?
Channel 4 has confirmed news of a special Celebrity series of SAS: Who Dares Wins fresh from the end of the latest ‘civilian’ series.
SAS: Who Dares Wins has partnered with Stand Up To Cancer for a first season involving celebrity contestants.
Just like on the main series, the team of ex-Special Forces operators, led by Chief Instructor Ant Middleton have put 12 brave celebrities, both male and female, through an intensive 7 day course to see if they’ve got what it takes to pass this unique version of SAS Selection.
The line up of celebrities taking part include Olympic Gold Medallist Victoria Pendleton, England Rugby International Ben Foden, former MP Louise Mensch, Loose Women’s Andrea McClean, Love Island’s Camilla Thurlow and Made in Chelsea’s Sam Thompson.
Joining them are former premier league and England footballer, Wayne Bridge; television presenter, AJ Odudu; War Horse and Mama Mia actor Jeremy Irvine; broadcaster and life coach Jeff Brazier; and Heather Fisher, an English rugby union and rugby sevens player.
Instructor Jason ‘Foxy’ Fox said: “We took great pleasure bringing these celebrities into our world and giving them as hard a time as we give anyone.
“There’s been no allowance made for fame or status, the celebrities have had to push themselves to the limit and reveal themselves like never before.
“We’ve learnt about each Celebrity’s strengths and weaknesses, hopes and fears, and come to an understanding of who they really are.”
Chief Instructor Ant Middleton added, “Celebrities go through their lives showing the public a front and face they want them to see but this process stripped all that away.
“They’ve importantly turned up to raise money for SU2C but also to learn something about themselves by facing extreme experiences.”
SAS: Who Dares Wins first celebrity special starts this Sunday, April 7 at 9PM.
There will be five episodes airing on Channel 4 every Sunday night.
