The first-ever series of Celebrity SAS recently came to a close, with Wayne Bridge emerging victorious.

Earlier in the year, three recruits – Milo, Lou and Mark – braved it through the brutal 10-day military-style camp, winning season 4 of the regular SAS: Who Dares Wins competition.

Whether you were inspired by their achievements and want to apply for the next season yourself, here’s everything you need to know about SAS: Who Dares Wins season 5.

SAS: Who Dares Wins – Season 5 start date

The last two seasons of SAS: Who Dares Wins have aired in January.

We imagine that Channel 4 will stick with the same winning formula, and season 5 will launch during the first week of 2020.

However, this could change due to filming. Series 4 changed location to the Andes Mountains in Chile, with filming scheduled to ensure that recruits were tested in the most severe conditions available.

The start date is likely to depend on the location.
