This time next year, series 3?
Desert, Arctic or celebrity special?
It's worth bearing in mind that 'Ant' was convicted and jailed for assaulting a female police officer. A conviction that would now presumably bar him from enlisting in the Royal Logistics Corps as a blanket stacker.
This is true, as an outsider he seems to have paid his dues and is getting on with life which I believe is very respectable
I fully support rehabilitation. I guess that my comment is directed at those unaware of the actual circumstances. Particularly as the judgment and decision making abilities of contestants is closely scrutinised.
Confused slightly by Ant's background pre-SF. According to channel 4 and also my old RMR OC (who took him through Rct Training as a regular) he was a Royal Engineer before joining the Corps. However on his Twitter Q&A last week he said he was a Para before he became a Marine. Maybe Para Engineers?
He was 9 Parachute Squadron Royal Engineers before transferring to RM.
Was "Ant" a sniper in the RM or a sniper in the SF? didn't think you could be a sniper in the SF?
Most likely specialised as a sniper before going SF as he was in the RM for 4 years.
I think the show is good to watch and pass time however I don't take it literally and doubt it is similar to actual SAS selection, I don't think people should expect this group of lads to be anything special as most of them have never been in the military.
I just think people should watch it based on it's entertainment value rather than how true it is to actual SAS selection.
I think it's decent to watch though.
Came across this on All4 :
It’s basically the US version, same format etc. Worth a watch if your interested.
Also just to stay on subject, SAS series 3 is due early 2018
Wee thread bump.
From over 2 years ago...done the desert, doing the arctic now...only one option left for the next series ;-)
I reckon a woman will win it, deserved or not!!
They’ve done wales and the jungle too, what else is left?
Regardless...i want to see suranya paired with that beefcake fireman bloke in milling. And i hope he doesn't hold back
She’s *text deleted* be a Commando, she’ll win
13 is a dreamer.
Love this programme so much. Especially the intro. Gets me going every time!
