Amber Gill leaves Celebrity SAS as Channel 4 show sees two stars exit
Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins was full of dramatic scenes on Sunday night as Amber Gill left the Channel 4 show while Pete Wicks was medically withdrawn.
During the latest instalment, Love Island star Amber, 25, was asked to leave after failing to complete a physical challenge on the beach.
However, the drama didn't stop there as Pete, 33, knocked himself unconscious and broke his ribs during a challenge, resulting in him being medically withdrawn.
The Only Way Is Essex star was seen floating face down in the sea in the shocking scenes after jumping from a helicopter with reality star Ashley Cain in a helocast task.
Rescue swimmers raced to help Pete, flipping him over in the water as the concerned recruits were heard saying from the shoreline: "Someone’s struggling!"
After swimming to shore, Pete told medics: "I winded myself and passed out, all my ribs are quite painful and my head is banging."
He later added: "I had no worries about that challenge, which is the weirdest thing. My strongest thing is probably swimming.
"I genuinely thought this would be the challenge for me to show what I f****** got and I got it wrong, I got it very wrong. I think my leg got a little bit caught in the bag and I went straight down onto the bag, knocked myself out and broke my ribs.
"I felt dazed and confused. I was struggling to move my upper body. Basically, I think where I’d hit the bag, and I think just the impact of being unconscious and everything else, I was very confused.
"I didn’t really know exactly what was going on and even moving my arms was quite painful, just because the pressure that was on my ribs and everything, so it just wasn’t nice. It was just a strange, strange experience."
Following his accident, the Channel 4 show's chief medical officer medically withdrew Pete because he needed to have a chest X-ray.
New chief instructor Rudy Reyes, who took over from Ant Middleton, told the TV star: "The issue is you have some damage and the course is going to get much harder physically, and it’s too risky for your health."
Wiping his eyes, Pete said: "I didn’t want to come out like this. I don’t f****** quit anything, that’s what it feels like."
