After controversially facing the jungle on I’m A Celebrity, former Health Secretary Matt Hancock is continuing his reality TV crusade by joining Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.
A first look trailer has been released for the gruelling Channel 4 programme… and the Special Forces operatives leading the process don’t hold back from pushing the politician and the other celebrities to the absolute limit of their physical and mental capabilities.
Joining Hancock on the programme will be Gareth Gates, Michelle Heaton, Siva Kaneswaran, Danielle Lloyd, Melinda Messenger and Jermaine Pennant, as well as Gareth Thomas, James Argnet, Montana Brown, Teddy Soares, Amber Turner, Zoe Lyons, Kirsty-Leigh Porter, Perri Shakes-Drayton and Jon-Allan Butterworth.
However, we have no doubt that plenty of viewers will be tuning in with the sole purpose of watching Hancock wrestle while covered in mud, take on terrifying heights and face the unrelenting glare of hardened interrogators.
At the beginning of the trailer, the public figure has a bag torn off his head, as he stands in the pouring rain while facing those in charge of his punishing experience.
Later, he can be seen focusing with all his might while taking on a height challenge, before screwing up his face while army crawling in muddy, marshy waters.

During a wrestle with a fellow Celebrity SAS star, he’s knocked off his feet in a blow that looks like it might take the wind right out of him.
Meanwhile, during an interrogation, Hancock looks like his eyes are filling up with tears as he’s told: ‘Relax. You look like you’re about to be executed.’
Despite the ex-Secretary of State sparking huge levels of backlash when he joined the cast of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, he still wound up finishing the competition in third place, behind winner Jill Scott and runner-up Owen Warner.
It was previously claimed that during the interrogations on Celebrity SAS, Hancock will be ‘absolutely destroyed’.

‘We treat everybody the same and we really went at him,’ chief instructor Billy Billingham said earlier this year.
‘In the interrogation bit, he gets destroyed, absolutely destroyed.’
He continued to The Sun: ‘At the time I thought, “Oh, hang on, maybe this is a bit much?” But no, he deserved it.
‘The idea is every single contestant will either leave on day one or will leave as a better version of themselves and with Matt Hancock, he’s still got a long way to go.’
Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins returns to on Tuesday September 26 at 9.30pm on Channel 4.
