Contestants will have their physical endurance put to the test while being subjected to sleep deprivation, interrogation and psychological testing.
It's not just a matter of physical stamina that will get these celebs over the line, but also mental strength, as they face rough terrain and unpredictable conditions. With a new location and a fresh cast, there's plenty to look forward to on SAS this year.
