Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins, TV’s most intense physical and psychological test, returned for its second series to date on Sunday, August 29th.
Channel 4 have twelve new celebrity recruits ready to take on the brutal challenge and the new series promise to be full of hard tasks for its participants as usual.
The first series of Celebrity SAS was part of the network’s Stand Up To Cancer programming. This spring has seen Bake Off return for its SU2C celebrity special, but the first episode of Celebrity SAS 2021 has not mentioned that it is fundraising for the charity. This has lead some to wonder whether the celebs are participating for a pay check, or whether they are in it to test themselves.
So, do the celebrities get paid on Celebrity SAS 2021?
Meet the Celebrity SAS 2021 cast
The 2021 cast of the Channel 4 series includes the likes of reality TV stars, presenters and faces from the music industry. They are:

- Wes Nelson
- Ulrika Jonsson
- Alexandra Burke

Do the celebs get paid?
In the 2020 series, the celebrities definitely did not get paid, as it was a charity Stand Up To Cancer special. But as they are not fundraising this series, they are potentially being paid for enrolling themselves in the SAS programme.
It’s hard to see why anyone would subject to torturous activity without being able to reap some kind of reward…
Many other challenge reality TV shows such as I’m A Celebrity pay their participants. So if Celebrity SAS isn’t fundraising, then it could be that they pay the celebs.
