Meet the controversial cast of SAS Australia 2023

Who will have the mental strength to tough it out to the end?

SAS Australia returns in 2023 with a brand new and somewhat controversial cast.

A new group of star recruits will take on one of the toughest environments faced by Special Forces operatives – the Middle East and will be put to the test like never before.

Pipped as the most “savage” show on TV, the contestants will be at the mercy of Chief Instructor Ant Middleton, DS (Directing Staff) Ollie Ollerton, retired US Navy SEAL Clint Emerson and former British Special Forces soldier Dean Stott, who will push them beyond their limits over 14 days.

For the first time ever in Australia, the celebrities will travel offshore to a secret base in the Middle East, where they will eat, sleep and train together in punishingly hot and arid conditions, with no allowances or exceptions made for their celebrity status or gender.

Like years gone by, they will also be subjected to extreme physical endurance, sleep deprivation, interrogation and psychological testing in unforgiving, dramatic terrain.

Who will have the mental strength to tough it out to the end?
