Celebrity SAS Who Dares Wins returned to our screens on Sunday evening for another episode of the stars being put through their paces.

One figure who has been attracting a lot of attention due to his appearance on the show is disgraced former health secretary Matt Hancock.

Sunday (1st October)’s show provided many more moments involving the 45-year-old which shocked fans, one of which included a more down-to-earth conversation which he shared with his fellow contestant, The Only Way Is Essex’s James ‘Arg’ Argent.

It turns out that the West Suffolk MP is a fan of TOWIE, telling Arg “of course” he’d seen the show.

This led viewers to X (formerly Twitter) to share their incredulity at the moment. “Matt Hancock is a TOWIE fan!!! I’ve heard it all now,” one wrote.

Others were more taken with how he took on the challenges included in the second episode of the show. 

“Matt Hancock face planting into the mud, absolutely brilliant,” wrote one person with several laughing emojis. “TV moment of the year thank you @SAS_WDW,” they added.

Some people also continued to question the politician’s appearance on the TV show, which he filmed prior to his appearance on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here last year.

“Why is Matt Hancock going on reality TV programmes? I actually want to slap him,” said one angry viewer.

Speaking about his experience on the show, Hancock said: “Being on SAS was like nothing else I've ever experienced. It's one of the toughest physical and mental things I've ever done.

“After coming through the most challenging period as health secretary during the pandemic, I wanted to push my limits,” he explained. “It's safe to say the course tested my resilience.”

Celebrity SAS Who Dares Wins continues on Channel 4 and on demand every Sunday at 9pm.
