Matt Hancock has returned to the forefront of the British public’s minds as he prepares to star on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here.
It’s a move that has definitely faced backlash, with some calling for the former health minister to be axed from the series.
But it’s not his first rodeo when it comes to a reality show, after he reportedly signed up to Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.
The Channel 4 show sees various celebrities and public figures go through a gruelling two weeks undergoing elements of the actual Special Forces selection course.
The series features Chief Instructor Rudy Reyes, as well as Directing Staff Jason Fox, Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham, and Remi Adeleke.
Despite Mr Hancock signing up to SAS: Who Dares Wins before I’m A Celebrity, it’s not set to air for a good while.
Is Matt Hancock appearing on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins?
It’s not been officially confirmed by Channel 4, but it’s widely reported that Mr Hancock will appear on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.
He spent the first week of October filming, just weeks before heading to Australia for I’m A Celebrity.
It’s reported that he’ll be starring alongside stars including Gareth Gates and James Argent in the new series.
A source told The Sun in September: ‘Matt knows there is a mixed perception of him in the public eye and he thinks going on the show would reveal a different side to himself.
‘It is not unusual for MPs to take part in these kinds of shows and Matt thinks he could go far on SAS, despite it being the hardest of all the reality series on television.’
Channel 4 responded: ‘In the best traditions of the SAS, this mission is confidential. However, full details will be released when the series broadcasts next year.’
When is Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins likely to air?
We don’t have an official release date for the next series of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins just yet, beyond it airing in 2023.
However, past series can give us a bit of a clue. Series one and series two of the show both aired in May, while series four and five made the move to October.
Considering series four has just finished airing, could we see a return to May for the next series?
Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins is available to stream on All 4.
