Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins: Series 5 trailer

BBC star Sam Quek has admitted that she has turned down the chance to do Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins multiple times over body fears.

The Team GB hockey player spoke exclusively with and spoke about her time on reality TV after her Olympic success.

The 35-year old came in fourth place during the 2016 series of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! and revealed that she’s been asked to do SAS: Who Dares Wins more than once.

“I’ve been asked to go on that a number of times. I just don’t need to put myself through that,” she explained.

“I personally don’t prove anything, myself or anyone else. And it’s brutal. I have a lot of respect for that show.

“And people who go onto that show are incredibly fit and strong.”

She added: “They get themselves into the best possible shape.

“And I was like, I’ve done that for 15 years. Trying to be the best, the fastest, the strongest, and my body probably wouldn’t want to put it through it. I’d rather sit and watch it on TV.”

However, the Question of Sport host didn’t rule out Strictly Come Dancing.

Sam was also in the jungle with Waterloo Road star Adam Thomas, who is currently competing in the dance competition.

On whether she would sign up to the BBC show, she said: “Yeah, never say never. It would be a fantastic challenge.”

Sam has also teamed up with Haliborange in a new campaign to end mum guilt and encourage parent pride.

Speaking about her role, she said: “For me this campaign really hit home.I went back to Morning Live after eight weeks.

“There was shock horror because it was unheard of. I’m really fortunate that I’ve got a really supportive husband and family which enables me to do that.

“But I think the more we speak about it – these are wins for parent pride. And that’s why we’re asking people to share their parent pride moments because everybody does it differently.”

95% of UK mums admit to feeling mum guilt on a daily basis, according to Haliborange.

Join the pledge by sharing your ‘Parent Pride’ moments on social media, using the hashtag #EndMumGuilt and tagging @haliborangeuk.
