Singer Liam Payne has been put through his paces for a gruelling new show alongside ‘SAS: Who Dares Wins’ star Ant Middleton.
The former One Direction star has teamed up with ‘SAS: Who Dares Wins’ hard man Ant Middleton for a new one off special for Sky1 which will see them go off grid into the wilderness of the African desert with just their backpacks and a car.
A source told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre TV column:
“Ant is highly trained in interrogation and strategic questioning so he really gets Liam to open up.
“Liam is one of the most famous pop stars in the country, but it’s not often viewers get to hear his inner thoughts. He also turns the tables on Ant, getting him to talk.”
‘Ant Middleton & Liam Payne: Straight Talking’ will follow the unlikely duo as they abandon home comforts in south-western Africa, and it will give music fans a greater insight into Liam’s life and thoughts.
The programme was filmed earlier this year and is set to be broadcast in November, with the duo camping under the stars before heading off on their exotic adventures.
Liam and Ant will be seen taking on tasks like canyon swinging in the Spitzkoppe mountains, and surfing on top of a high speed train.
Meanwhile, the former Special Forces soldier recently admitted he would love to take on a fresh challenge by putting kids through their paces in a kids version of his popular surviva shows.
“I’d absolutely do a kids version of SAS. We’ve been talking about it.
“It’s all about mindset so it would be getting the kids to get strong mentally and physically.”
