The third season of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins has started, and already the brutal nature of the tasks have taken a toll on the contestants. Express.co.uk spoke to some of the celebrities taking part in the current series of the hit Channel 4 show, including former footballer Kieron Dyer, singer Jake Quickenden, Paralympian athlete Aled Davies, former bicycler Shanaze Reade and reality star Wes Nelson. Living in such close quarters and under immense pressure, it’s natural not all the celebrities will get on, and one person apparently caused some trouble, according to singer Jake.
Talking about some of the tougher scenes, the 32-year-old admitted: that going up against other celebrities to wrestle was a challenge in terms of causing clashes amongst the contestants.
“I think there was tension – someone caused a little bit of tension between a couple of people but I’m not going to say who,” he explained.
“But I think we all knew that these are just the tasks.
“These are trials we have to go in and we have to try our best, we have to show we’re not scared and try not to hurt the other person but try to have a plan.”
Footballer Kieron admitted to making Jake “cry” at one point.
“I took off my armband and pretended I was quitting,” the 42-year-old recalled.
“Told all the contestants in the barracks, I said: ‘I’ve had enough, I’m out of here.’
“And they obviously took it literally. Shanaze came and gave me a big hug, and Jake started crying, and then I had to get my armband and put it back on and say ‘I’m only joking’.”
The former football star also said that some parts of the show which would have made “good TV” were cut from the series.
“They had to cut the pairs out because of the injuries and stuff,” he commented.
“There was a good bit when someone I got partnered with – you have to tell them their weaknesses as an individual.
“You have to look them in the eye. And I say to my partner – I say ‘Your biggest weakness is your arrogance’.
“And that would have been good TV to watch – I don’t think that will be in.”
Speaking about why he wanted to take on the tough challenge, Aled said: “It was an opportunity for me I thought I’d never get.
“I wanted to join the army when I was younger, obviously with my disability I was never given the opportunity.
“So for me it was a it was a chance to have a taste of the life that could have been.”
“Mine was on the mental aspect of the show,” Kieron admitted. “Not so much physical.
“I’m a guy who’s a glass half empty. That was trying to maybe change your mindset to be in a glass half full, have a positive outlook rather than seek out the negatives.
“This show definitely helped me with that.”
Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins airs on Sunday at 9pm on Channel 4.
