Elite ex-Special Forces soldiers Ant Middleton, Mark “Billy” Billingham, Jason “Foxy” Fox and Ollie Ollerton are returning to lead the new celebrity recruits — who include actor Dan Ewing, Ironman Jett Kenny, Bra Boy Koby Allerton, Celebrity Chef Manu Feildel and TV Presenter, Erin Holland — promising the most gruelling course ever seen in the UK or Australia.
“Living in our world will be the rawest and most brutal life lesson these celebrities will ever experience,” Middleton said in a statement. “We aren’t holding anything back, it’s as authentic as it gets.”
The full line-up of star recruits to take on SAS Australia are:
Alicia Molik – Tennis Champion
Bonnie Anderson – Singer / Actor
Brynne Edelsten – Socialite
Dan Ewing – Actor
Emma Husar – Former Politician
Erin Holland – TV Presenter
Heath Shaw – AFL Star
Isabelle Cornish – Actor
Jana Pittman – Dual Olympian
Jessica Peris – Sprinter
Jett Kenny – Ironman
John Steffensen – Olympic Runner
Kerri Pottharst – Beach Volleyball Olympian
Koby Abberton – Bra Boy
Manu Feildel – Celebrity Chef
Mark Philippoussis – Tennis Legend
Pete Murray – Singer-Songwriter
Sam Burgess – NRL Star
For these new recruits, physical fitness is little more than a necessary minimum and the true test will be what goes on in their mind.
Stripped back to nothing but a number, the celebrities will be cut off from the outside world at a secret base in spectacular terrain where they will eat, sleep and train in punishing conditions.
They’ll also be subjected to extreme physical endurance, sleep deprivation, interrogation and psychological testing and above all, be pushed beyond their limits.
