Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins is an ultimate test for all of its contestants, but for some, their journey on the show had to end early as a result of major injury.
Last week, dramatic scenes showed four of the celebrity participants leave the Channel 4 show in a shock twist, leaving viewers gobsmacked.
This season's contestants features the likes of Vicky Pattison, Kerry Katona, Wes Nelson, Katie Price, Saira Khan, Jake Quickenden and more, with some of the programme's fan favourites departing the show earlier than they'd planned to.
Out of the four departing contestants, three of them were badly injured, whilst one had purely had enough and wanted to head home.
Here's all you need to know about Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins' injuries so far…
Saira Khan – Broken ankle
One of the show's worst injuries yet was former Loose Women star Saira Khan's broken ankle.
The star required surgery as a result of the break, which happened in 2019 back when this series was filmed.
Speaking of her horrific accident, which happened as a result of a mud wrestle with co-star Ulrika Jonsson, the 51 year old said she "was in agony".
The tough TV star, who was determined to soldier on, carried on with her broken ankle for a whole day after sustaining the injury, saying adrenaline and shock kept her going to start with.
Speaking to the Scottish Hebrides, Saira said: "“I was waving that flag for women in their 50s to go, ‘Don’t write us off’.
“There was a chip on my shoulder, like, ‘I am not going to prove to you women can’t carry on if in pain. ‘F*** you, I’m going to keep doing it!’.
“It was painful… but the adrenaline and shock. Your body just takes over.”
Saira required ankle surgery and had a metal plate and nine pins inserted as a result.
The star's injury took six months to heal, but the busy mum cited the show as her “wake-up call” to quit Loose Women.
Jake Quickenden was forced to withdraw after rupturing his pectoral muscle and bicep during a freak accident in a speedboat challenge.
Jake Quickenden – Ruptured arm and chest muscles
Reality TV star-turned soap actor Jake Quickenden suffered horrendous injuries during his time on the show.
The 33 year old sustained an arm injury so bad that his tendons were torn straight off the bone.
After he tried to haul himself back onto a boat whilst out at sea, Jake's arm and pec injury meant he had to have four metal pins inserted to repair the damage.
He stated at the time that his whole arm went numb for 48 hours as a result.
Father of one Jake explained: "I ruptured my pec and my bicep, so the tendons were torn straight off the bone.
"I had to have them stretched back to my shoulder. I’ve got four pins in my shoulder now where they’re all back in place.”
It took the hunk a whopping five months in rehab to recover from the injury.
Shanaze Reade – broken shoulder
Motocross champion Shanaze Reade was also the victim of a painful injury during her stint on Celebrity SAS, and was gutted she had to leave.
The sporting star, 32, is used to getting injured due to the nature of her dangerous sport, and felt she was "short changed" after she was forced to leave the show.
“I was just devastated about that because for me breaking bones and stuff, I don’t care,” she said at the time.
“It’s been a part of my life with racing. I felt like I was short changed because I went out with injury. I was absolutely gutted.”
