No allowances or exceptions will be made for this group of celebrities, who will be tested to their mental and physical limits, through a series of brutal tasks and interrogations. Taking part in the punishing jungle phase of SAS selection - one of the toughest environments faced by Special Forces operatives – are Former Health Secretary, Matt Hancock (44); Singers, Gareth Gates (38); Michelle Heaton (43) and Siva Kaneswaran (34); TV Personality, Danielle Lloyd (39); TV Presenter, Melinda Messenger (51); Ex-Premier League Footballer, Jermaine Pennant (40), Ex-Welsh Rugby International, Gareth Thomas (48), Reality TV Stars James “Arg” Argent (35), Montana Brown (27), Teddy Soares (28), Amber Turner (29), Comedian, Zoe Lyons (51), Actor, Kirsty-Leigh Porter (34), Great British Olympian, Perri Shakes-Drayton (34) and Paralympic Gold Medalist, Jon-Allan Butterworth MBE,
There will be no special treatment for any of the celebrities, as they confront surprising truths about themselves, to discover their true selves. Not everyone will have what it takes to make it to the end of this course run by the elite team of ex-Special Forces operators - Chief Instructor, Billy Billingham MBE and his team of Directing Staff (DS), Foxy (Jason Fox), Rudy Reyes and Chris Oliver. The DS don’t care how famous the recruits are, how many social media followers they have or what they have done before this. As soon as they enter the selection process, their celebrity status and luxuries are stripped away.
