The first episode of the fifth series aired last night, which saw the recruits put through their paces with a swimming challenge in near freezing water, followed by a run on land to get them to their base on a remote Scottish Island. But for Korey Clough, age 32, his journey on the show was over before it even began as he slipped to the back of the group in the opening challenge. Led by ex Special Forces soldier Ant Middleton, SAS: Who Dares Wins recreates the SAS's secret selection process, putting civilians through their paces in a gruelling ultimate test of their physical and psychological resiliance. When the 25 recruits reached their base, Ant ejected Korey and 23-year-old pathology technician Amos from the show, deeming them 'unworthy' of progressing any further.
"This course is going to be the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, and I just don't want to fail," Korey said, in the opening of the epsiode. Among the new recruits is also two sisters from Cornwall.
