Amber Gill and Pete Wicks quit SAS: Who Dares Wins hours into gruelling series

Both Amber Gill and Pete Wicks have been forced off the latest series of SAS: Who Dares Wins just hours after it kicked off.

Reality star Amber, who won the fifth season of Love Island, found her latest TV venture far more difficult and handed her number to directing staff after just 48 hours.

Towie's Pete only lasted 24 hours after he was reportedly forced into submission by a broken rib.

As source close to the show told The Sun: "The show bills itself as the hardest thing on telly – and it’s lived up to its reputation once again.

"Amber is by no means a wimp, but just couldn’t hack it any longer. She’s a reality star turned fitness expert and even she couldn’t stay longer than two days. She was gutted but couldn’t carry on.

"Meanwhile, Pete really hurt himself on the course, and had to withdraw on medical grounds. Doing some of the stuff that the directing staff want you to do with a broken rib is just not possible.

"They both got an early flight home to the UK."

The Channel 4 show, considered by most as the toughest reality programme, is back with a celebrity version this year. Contestants have to complete a series of military training exercises and impress veteran instructors.

This year's incarnation has been moved to Jordan in the Middle East, whereas the previous episodes have been filmed on the isle of Raasay, Scotland.

Amber and Pete leave behind an array of other celebs including Olympian Dwain Chambers, Towie star Ferne McCann and EastEnders actress Maisie Smith

Previous celebrity winners include ex-footballer Wayne Bridge, Leon 'Locksmith' Rolle from Rudimental and Love Island's Wes Nelson.

Former boxer Tony Bellew, media personalities Katie Price and Kerry Katona, as well as Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison are among the famous faces to have appeared on the show.
