Self-motivation, self-discipline. pursuit of excellence and the will to never give up. Our recruits will be pushed emotionally, physically and mentally beyond anything they have ever experienced.
He added: “The standards will never drop but most of the recruits will!!! No concessions, No excuses !! Only results …”
Here’s what you need to know about the Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins 2023 line-up, when it’s on TV, and who has left the show so far.
What can we expect from Celebirty SAS: Who Dares Wins 2023?
According to Channel 4, there will be ‘no special treatment’ for any of the celebrities, as they confront surprising truths about themselves, to discover who they really are. Not everyone will have what it takes to make it to the end of this course run by the elite team of ex-Special Forces operators - Chief Instructor, Billy Billingham MBE and his team of Directing Staff (DS), Foxy (Jason Fox), Rudy Reyes and Chris Oliver.
The DS don’t care how famous the recruits are, how many social media followers they have or what they have done before this. As soon as they enter the selection process, their celebrity status and luxuries are stripped away.
