Embarking on one of the toughest physical challenges of their lives, the familiar faces will be sent to the West Coast of Scotland to face a punishing course in challenging terrain.

On the remote island of Raasay, the celebrity recruits will have to face the wild seas, harsh landscape and unforgiving weather, all while living in a derelict farmstead.

Chief instructor Ant Middleton will be leading the group, helped by his team of directing staff: Foxy, Billy, Ollie and newest member Jay.

Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins starts at 9pm on Monday 20th April.

Richard Sambrook’s TV diary

TV diary

Watching an election campaign from an academic perch is very different to organising coverage in the newsroom. My university colleagues are no less engaged, but they stand outside the media-political bubble and are usually better informed.

This can make some of their questions more challenging than those of presenters, correspondents or politicians. They seem to think opinion should be based on rigorous research and evidence. Quaint notion.


We have had a team researching media coverage of the campaign that has been published in The Guardian each week.
