Faced with more extreme challenges in mountainous and unforgiving terrain, these famous faces will eat, sleep and be tested in punishing conditions, with no allowances or exceptions made for their celebrity status or gender.
As they’re subjected to extreme physical endurance, sleep deprivation, interrogation and psychological testing, these men and women will need to push past their fears and their limits. Some will reach breaking point and withdraw. Who will have the mental strength to tough it out to the end?
The new season of SAS Australia will premiere on Channel 7 later this year
