It's been another extremely exciting series of Channel 4's military training series SAS: Who Dares Wins and it's very nearly time for this year's winner to be revealed.


Sunday's episode will see the remaining recruits put through their paces in the notorious interrogation stage, and SAS: Who Dares Wins instructor Jason ‘Foxy’ Fox has teased that it will be "even more brutal" than usual, telling that "there’s a nice little sting in the tail at the end, which will be a nice surprise to everyone."

Meanwhile Foxy also revealed that several of the challenges don't make it to air, explaining that due to "time constraints" a lot of the tasks have to be left on the cutting room floor.

A whopping 21 contestants have headed into remote Highland areas over the course of this series as they embark on a tough series of mental and physical tests.

While Ant Middleton departed the show earlier this year, this sixth series was filmed in 2020 and so the Chief Instructor has been appearing throughout this series of SAS: Who Dares Wins.

Meanwhile, instructors Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham and Melvyn Downes have revealed a few famous faces they'd like to see take part in a future series of the celebrity edition.

Speaking to, Billy said “Ben Shepherd, Piers Morgan, Gordon Ramsay because I think they’d be good challenges. I mean Gordon’s a tough guy and I think he’d do well."

And Melvyn added, "I’d love Nigel Benn and Chris Eubanks, the boxers, I’d like them to both come on this show together because I’m a big boxing fan and I always remember the days when these guys boxed."

SAS: Who Dares Wins 2021 location

This year's series of SAS: Who Dares Wins was filmed in "the wilds of Scotland", with the recruits heading to the Scottish island of Raasay for their first challenge.

Over the course of the series, the contestants have been tasked with racing up a 4000-foot mountain, abseiling off an oil rig, exposed to extreme cold in a water immersion exercise and sent through a pitch-black disused tunnel.

Of course, the bunkers that the contestants are forced to stay in aren't known for being particularly luxurious, and long-time instructor Jason ‘Foxy’ Fox has revealed the Directing Staff bunkers are even “worse”.

When asked whether instructors sleep in similar conditions to the recruits, Foxy told “Yes, similar. In fact, it’s worse.”

He added: “Our room is smaller and living with [Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham] is a real nightmare. I always sleep next to Billy for some reason.”

Before the series debut, Channel 4 released a clip of the sixth series of SAS: Who Dares Wins, which features one recruit seemingly falling down the side of a cliff, and others abseiling down what looks like a giant chimney. Ant Middleton can be heard shouting, "You're about to be in a whole world of pain!" There's also lots of tears all round.

The broadcaster also revealed a few first-look image from the upcoming episodes, including the shot below which sees the new recruits face-down in the mud.
