When is Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins on TV?

A release date hasn't been confirmed just yet for the 2020 series, but judging by previous years it's looking like it could be soon.

The 2019 celebrity version aired on Sunday April 7th, so we expect the 2020 edition to kick off sometime this month, if not in May.

Similar to the 2019 series, Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins will air every Sunday at 9pm on Channel 4.

Each episode is an hour-long and will be broadcast between 9 and 10pm.

Who is in the Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins cast?

The new celebrity recruits will be put through their paces and their day jobs will definitely seem far away during the process.
But who's taking part?
Here's everything you need to know...

Middleton is a British former soldier, adventurer and television presenter. He also appeared as the captain in the adventure/reality-show Mutiny and the survival show Escape.

Speaking of the latest recruits, Middleton said: "If these celebrities turn up with an ego, they won’t last 24 hours. There are no short cuts, there are no easy options. They think they know what’s coming but trust me, they are going to get the absolute shock of their lives."
