SAS Who Dares Wins Celebrity Edition Set To Become FULL Series
Channel 4 are reportedly planning to bring a whole new ‘Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins‘ cast to our screens to kick off a FULL series, following the success of the ‘Stand Up To Cancer’ special.
The celebrity version of the survival show proved a massive hit, following a one- off charity special recently.
The original celeb SAS Who Dares Wins Cast included Olympian Victoria Pendleton, footballer Wayne Bridge, MIC star Sam Thompson and ex- Love Island star Camilla Thurlow. Viewers were shocked by how brutal and realistic their experience was in relation to that of a real special forces soldier.
It’s not uncommon for celebrities to take a bit of a back seat and put themselves above certain tasks.
But, this series showed the celebs stripped of all the comforts they knew and really thrown in to the deep end- to which many of them came out fighting.

BIG Budgets Are In Place
Twelve celebs were pushed to their absolute limits in a gruelling week-long mission led by former SAS soldier, Ant Middleton.
A staggering 1.7 million tuned in to watch the celebs suffer the harsh reality of what the troops endure daily.
Following the success, Channel4 bosses have offered a larger budget to accommodate even BIGGER names. The budget will have to be extortionate for some of the divas in the limelight…

Think about ‘I’m a Celebrity’- the public, if we’re being honest, enjoy seeing celebs put through their paces.
“They really want to avoid it being saturated with the usual reality names.”
This is refreshing to hear!
Our tv guides are already saturated with reality shows, recycling the same names, namely those from TOWIE like Chloe Sims or ex- Love Islanders, for ratings.

One of the stars from SAS Who Dares Wins Cast- Loose Women’s Andrea McLean- spoke on how the mental test is greater than the physical one:
“While taking part in Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins, I struggled emotionally when [lead instructor] Ant Middleton shouted at me, as it brought back dark times. Memories I thought I’d pushed so far down into my head that they weren’t there anymore.”

There’s not many shows on the market that offer such a raw challenge, so we’re all for a full series!
