The start of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins is just around the corner and fans of the show are excited to see how the twelve celebrity recruits will cope.

Ant and the celebrity recruits.

Jeremy Irvine: bio

The 28-year-old was born and bred in Cambridgeshire, England but now lives in the leafy suburbs of Hampstead, London.

Jeremy currently lives with his girlfriend, Jodie Spencer, who works as a midwife.

He has been acting since the age of 16 and has starred in movie hits such as War Horse, Great Expectations and Mamma Mia 2.

So you’re bound to have seen him on your screens before Celebrity SAS!

How did Jeremy cope on the show?

Jeremy has previously discussed his desire to join the military, he even attempted to join at the age of 17 but was rejected as he suffers from diabetes.

However, it wasn’t his physical health that stood in the way of this challenge, but the reality of the SAS boot camp.

Speaking on his experience, Jeremy said:

As a fan of the show, having watched the other series, it doesn’t even come close to what it’s like.

Mainly because of the editing process, as “you only see a minute of that massive run” and the beasting sessions we see in the show goes on for hours.

Jeremy on the rest of the team…

When discussing his SAS teammates, Jeremy had nothing but positives to say.

“The people you think will be amazing at some stuff, they suffer, and everyone has their mental drop several times throughout each day and it comes at different points. I remember Dev grabbing me and saying: ‘Look me in the eyes, I know you can do it’. It gets you through it”.

Sounds like the celeb recruits really got each other through!
