SAS Australia: Schapelle Corby among Australian celebrities in sneak peak for new Seven reality show

Channel Seven has released a sneak peak of the upcoming reality series SAS Australia which sees convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby face her toughest challenge since being released from Bali’s notorious Kerobokan prison.

The lineup includes a host of Aussie celebrities from PR queen Roxy Jacenko, retired ironwoman Candice Warner, former Bachelor and rugby player Nick “Honey Badger” Cummins, Merrick Watts and Shane Warne’s son Jackson.

Putting the celebrity recruits through the gruelling SAS course is an elite team of ex-Special Forces soldiers – Chief Instructor Ant Middleton, his Directing Staff Jason “Foxy” Fox, Ollie Ollerton and Mark “Billy” Billingham from the UK version of the series.

They will be subjected to extreme physical endurance, sleep deprivation, interrogation and psychological testing, pushing the stars beyond their limits every step of the way.

“This is completely unscripted and one hundred per cent real,” Middleton said in the voice-over.

“We’re going to find out who they really are and so are they.”

The teaser showed the hooded contestants being led across a beach before launching into the epic action.

Cummins abseiled down a sheer rock face, Warner and Jacenko are knee deep in mud and Corby holds back the tears as one of the soldiers confront her before falling from a helicopter into a freezing lake.

“Australia knows me as the drug smuggler,” Corby said in the voice-over.

“I want to change my life.”

Seven’s director of programming Angus Ross the celebrity contestants would be pushed to breaking point.

“We have an absolutely killer celebrity cast who are all in for a shock,” Ross said.

“SAS Australia is no game — it is the toughest test. The course is brutal, and it doesn’t matter who you are or what you do there is no special treatment.”

SAS Australia comes to Channel Seven in October.
